    Windows Movie Maker video problems....


    Does anyone use or has used Windows Movie Maker which is a great little video editing programme ?

    I know it was designed for Win 7 but in the link below it says suitable for Win 10 but having tried all I know for some reason I still can't get it to work at all. Virtual Dub is the closest but don't want to download the codec required as there's some sort of warning saying it could risk the Registry.

    Thanks for any help...

    Windows Essentials 2012 suite reached end of support on January 10, 2017.
    As of January 10, 2017, Windows Essentials 2012 is no longer supported on Windows 10, and is unavailable for download.

    Windows Essentials 2012 included Windows Movie Maker, Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Family Safety and the OneDrive desktop app for Windows. Already installed applications will continue to work as they do today.
    That's a quote from the Microsoft web site.

    However, you can still download the suite of files from https://digiex.net/threads/windows-l...version.14994/

    Install only Photo Gallery & Movie Maker, and untick the rest.

    It work perfectly on Windows 10 on my PC (ver 1709)

    @Arcadian, that link is NOT Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, it is a 'lookalike' called 'Windows Movie Maker 2016' and has nothing to do with Microsoft. I believe 'Windows Movie Maker 2016' includes in-app purchases to unlock some features.
    Windows Movie Maker scam tops Google search results

    The last version of Movie Maker Microsoft produced was in 'Windows Essentials 2012'. As @skcusime says, it works well in 1709 (I use it regularly). If you'd prefer another source to download the offline installer, an original Microsoft download page can be found in the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.

    Now that windows movie maker is no longer there what do people use

    Yes, the rest of 'Essentials' won't work/install on 1709. In fact, the offline installer may report a failed install for Movie Maker/Photo Gallery - despite what it says, the install will have worked.

    ...Although installer gave the error message shown in screenshot, to my surprise I found Movie Maker and Photo Gallery now in Start Menu. Both work perfectly.

    Strange!

    Thanks for the help installed only Photo Gallery & Movie Maker, then it just stopped. Tried again with the same result so leaving it now as it's taking up too much time....

    Thanks again

    ... I have found a pretty good alternative for Movie Maker: Shotcut, open source and completely free.

    Last year I had Windows Essentials 2012 offline installer downloaded and saved for rainy days before MS discontinued the support.

    Yesterday, what a coincidence, I reinstalled Win 10 into a Win 7 computer which was reset to Factory Settings.(I was planning to sell it but changed my mind.)
    I used the offline installer and had my WLM, Movie Maker and Photo Gallery reinstalled without a hiccup.

    If someone can teach me how to upload the installer to this forum, I am more than happy to do so.
    Provided, of course, I am allowed to do so.

    The Offline Installer is 131 MB in size.

    Me too...

    No need - there are already two different links to downloads in this thread. I have tested the Wayback Machine one that I gave and compared the download with my original copy - it's the same file.

    ...I reinstalled Win 10 ... I used the offline installer and had my WLM, Movie Maker and Photo Gallery reinstalled without a hiccup.
    Thanks for that. Was that Win10 you installed version 1709, or something earlier? I haven't tested the offline installer in 1709 yet.

    I'd be very interested indeed as I'm really used to WMM which is still on my old Win 7 as it's so simple and quick. I always use Pot Player which is superb but it's saying "The file exists but does not have any video." Then a list of the faults as below....
