You might try the following trick on Windows Live Essentials 2011.

1. Download the web-setup file "wlsetup-web.exe"
2.When it starts select the second option
"Choose the programs you want to install"
3. Here is very important part: DO NOT CLICK install button!
You need to wait here. It depends on your internet speed.
For 4.3 Mbps it took 15 minutes wait.
4. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache
You will find a bunch of folders where with random names.
You can stop waiting when this folder will get to about 259 MB.
And new folders will stop appearing.
5. Find the following files and backup them in separate folder:
PhotoCommonLang.msi
d-PhotoCommonLang.msp
PhotoLibraryLang.msi
UXPlatform.msi
d-PhotoLibraryLang.msp

Folder containing:
DEC2006_d3dx9_32_x64.cab
DEC2006_d3dx9_32_x86.cab
DSETUP.dll
dsetup32.dll
DXSETUP.exe
dxupdate.cab

Another folder with
Aug2009_d3dx10_42_x64.cab
Aug2009_d3dx10_42_x86.cab
DSETUP.dll
dsetup32.dll
DXSETUP.exe
dxupdate.cab

And other single files
wllogin_wlx-x86.msi
d-UXPlatform.msp
WLXSuite.msi
UXPlatformLang.msi
d-WLXSuite.msp
crt90.msi
d3dx10-x86.msi
dw20shared.msi
soxe.definitions.msi
soxe.core.msi
d-soxe.core.msp
Contacts.msi
d-Contacts.msp
pimt.msi
PhotoCommon.msi
WLXSuiteLang.msi
d-PhotoCommon.msp
SQLServerCE31-EN.msi
PhotoLibrary.msi
d-PhotoLibrary.msp
d-WLXSuiteLang.msp

IGNORE the rest of the files - those are the other components of Live Essentials.

6. Cancel installation of Windows Live Essentials 2011.

7. GO back to the rescued files and install all of mentioned above one by one (well, except dx folders, you just start dxsetup in that case)

SLIDESHOW MIGHT NOT WORK WITHOUT LIVE MOVIE MAKER

If Windows Live installed more than you want, proceed to uninstall Windows Live. There you can select what to uninstall and what to keep.

Btw; the WLMM is very good. The output quality is ways better than with WMM. It is also much easier to operate because of the ribbon.

Unfortunately, this is not the case with Photo gallery and Movie maker, because they are paired in the installer as well as in uninstaller.

Mitch656, try the suggestion I have posted above.

You are saying that nothing appears in the folder
Program Files\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache
when you start web intaller and do not contunue through it at the "Choose the programs you want to install" step?

Logic behind of all that is the following.
When you start file wlsetup-web.exe (1,3 Mb) it secretly downloads about 259 Mb of installation files from the internet. If you try to start wlsetup-web.exe without internet connection, you wont be able to install any part of MS Essentials (because the installer gets it from MS website).

By the way, if you use other MS OS, the folder might be different.
