Windows 7: No more movie maker? Not good.

No more movie maker? Not good.

The Live version of Movie Maker is not as good as the one that came with Vista. If there was one thing Microsoft should add to the RTM it's the decent movie maker. I don't understand. Me and everybody I know hates the Live version in comparison. I know they're "keeping it simple" and all but that program is great.

Please Microsoft, don't make us try to copy it from Vista....it's too hard.

Yea, I'm trying to figure this program out and it's not going to work for me. I do stills mixed with music mostly, This seems to be concentrated on video. It looks good but not what I'm looking for. Dang.

SIW2, have you done this? I tried it and ended up having to register .dlls and it got ugly. I don't even want to try again. It was a few builds ago.

I knew you could get it but it says you need Vista

A friend told me he had a hard time getting it to run in Se7en.
