You only need to choose Movie Maker from the downloads list, unless you want the others.

If it says that Movie Maker is already installed, look in Control Panel>Programs and Features. Is it there? If so look in Start>All PRograms for it. If not there uninstall the old one and install it again from the Download.

I posted the spec in my first post which shows it is available in 64 bit: Windows Essentials 2012 system requirements - Microsoft Windows Help

Did you type Movie Maker in the Start button Search box to see if it's already installed?
