Windows 7: Windows Movie Maker can not start WLDPhotoBase.dll is missing...

Windows Movie Maker can not start WLDPhotoBase.dll is missing...

"Program can't start because WLDPhotoBase.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling..."

Also for Windows Live Photo Gallery.

I was having trouble with bad conversions and the program (Movie Maker) using so much of my resources (should it really be using 100%?) and so I tried to uninstall and reinstall.

I used Revo Uninstaller and maybe I shouldn't have used an advanced scan to remove remaining files and registry entries.

I tried to reinstall, uninstall what remained and have myself boxed into a corner as I can't go back to the original restore point. And I can't even find Windows Live Essentials anymore in Revo...!

So if anyone can tell me how to fix this, I'd be grateful.

Every time I've tried to reinstall it just says my program is up to date. You'd think that if the dll file is missing the program would go find it on the web?

Anyway, thanks.

I see there are places where you can download the dll file and then paste it, I suppose, into the folder C:\Program Files(x86)\Windows Live\Photo Gallery since Movie Maker's exe file is in there too...

PS: I see places for downloading the dll file but I don't know if I could trust them... I'm pretty sure what folder to insert it into: c:\program files(X86)\Windows Live\Photo Gallery (both the Photo Gallery and Movie Maker exe files are in that folder and they can't find it there.

Solved ! After 8 attempts I finally got a Windows Live Repair file under a new folder in x86 called Windows Live... it did the trick.
