How to Install Windows Movie Maker 6.0 on Windows 7


information   Information
In Windows 7, it is preferred for you to download and install the newer Windows Live Movie Maker. If you would prefer the older Windows Movie Maker 6.0 from Windows Vista instead, then this will show you how to install it over to Windows 7.
Note   Note
These are the things you are going to need for this tutorial:
  • Windows Movie Maker 6.0 Files from Windows Vista
  • The .cmd file to register Movie Maker DLL's to Windows 7 (Check the attachments)
  • and of course, a PC running Windows 7
Tip   Tip
  • If you did a custom install from Windows Vista, you can find your Movie Maker files from the Windows.old folder. (Thanks to Wii Master 64)




Here's How:
1. First, you must copy Windows Movie Maker 6.0 files from a computer with Vista installed.
Important: If you are going to install WMM on a Windows 7 64-bit, make sure that the WMM files you will use came from a 64-bit version of Windows Vista.

2. Go to "C:\Program Files". Make a folder named "Windows Movie Maker 6.0" then paste the WMM files inside that folder.

3. Click on the Download button below to download and save moviemk_dll_registrar.zip. Extract and run the install moviemk dlls.cmd file with Run as Administrator and follow the instructions.
download



4. Add a shortcut to Windows Movie Maker on your desktop for easy access.

5. That's it! You're done

Also, may I add, if you do a custom install over a Vista installation, you can find the Movie Maker folder in the windows.old folder.

That was the one that I used but I didn't post the link because I figured that maybe (just maybe) it's against the rules.... anyway, it's for the mods to decide

I followed your instructions...copied 'Windows Movie Maker 6.0' from my 'Vista' pc...then I ran your program "install moviemk dlls.cmd" as Administrator. It seemed to work, but when I tried to create a DVD, It said that it would save the program and then run the DVD program, however, it saved it then just deleted what I had in my storyline...no DVD
