I haven't tried all the transition effects myself, but those I have tried have worked. I did have a problem with some title effects, but it was caused by one of the recent nvidia drivers (it affected Movie Maker in Vista too). The latest nvidia driver seems to be working ok though.

See if you can update your video card driver, it might help.

Find a Vista pc with Home Premium or Ultimate (I'm not sure if Movie Maker is in other flavors). Copy the Movie Maker folder from Vista (C:\Program Files\Movie Maker) to your Win 7 Program Files folder.

Register some .dll files with the attached batch file (renamed with .txt extension, rename to .bat after downloading and run from an elevated command prompt). You can open the batch file with a text editor to see what it's going to do if you have any concerns.

That's it, you're done.
Thanks to your help, I was able to get WMM 6.0 running great on my Win7 64-bit box! I took the time to make a write-up for the benefit of others. Your batch file is included in the download.

Thanks again,

Yip

Windows Movie Maker 2.6 works very well with Windows 7. Although WMM 2.6 was originally made for Windows XP, it launches quite fast in Windows 7 and I was even able to make a video there that I uploaded to Youtube.

I have heard a rumor that Windows Movie Maker for Vista is actually more buggy and lags more often that Windows Movie Maker 2.6. Its free to download and I prefer it many times than that Windows Live Movie Maker which is crap!!!!

Well, I'm just trying to help *and* give folks some choice. The WMM "Vista" Version has support for hardware-accelerated effects, an updated interface, and additional transitions/effects to choose from. It also imports video faster and *lacks* a few bugs I've seen in Ver 2.6.

Certainly both versions work, but I prefer version 6.0 over 2.6. I like a few features of Windows Live Movie Maker, but they stripped out too much for my tastes Too bad.
