1. C:\Program Files\Movie Maker on your Vista machine

2. Yes and yes.

3. The dll registration download is just a little script that runs regsvr 32 for the appropriate dll files. If you have concerns about it, you could just download it, unzip it, open the "install moviemk dlls.cmd" file in Notepad and see what it is doing. You could even do the dll registration yourself, one file at a time based on what you see in the "install moviemk dlls.cmd" file.

I would just run the script to save keystrokes though. Just follow the steps in the first post of this thread and have fun editing your movies...

Hi dgenx210, thanks for the tutorial, I've just copied the folder across as per your instructions. One question for you though: Is it possible to register the dll's without overwriting/replacing W7's movie maker? I'd still like the option to use both

I did the tweak as per the above instructions and I still have the Live WMM available. I think there is no need to twist the .dlls.

Hi, I want to do this, but there is one small problem: I never had Vista, and my old computer can't start up so I can't get anything from there. Basically, I don't have any old files of WMM that I need to do the first step. Isn't there a way to get WMM without getting any old files?

There are some links on page 2 of this thread from where you can download it.

Okay guys, this is what happened: I dl-ed the files from those dl links, did the folder (called Windows Movie Maker 6.0), but there were problems that made it not able to launch:

wmm2ae.dll was loaded but the call to DLLRegisterServer failed with error code 0x80070005

It says the same for wmm2clip.dll, filt, Video Media Handler, and Pipeline.

There was only one (forgot the name) that did work, though.

I need help, please.

I already have those; do I simply move them to the folder, nothing else?

EDIT: Wasn't there a post above this one? I thought there was, that's why I said that.

EDIT2: I was referring to the three WMM 7z that you could download back in page 2 or 3.

That's what I downloaded. Do I put them in the folder, no changes to their filenames or anything?
