Windows Live Movie Maker 2012 Not Starting

A few days ago I was installed Windows Live Movie Maker 2012 on my notebook. Being having enough powerful hardware to meet its requirements for running. It don't start. I don't know what is the problem with that program. I have installed it along with Photo Gallery. Photo Gallery works quite well. But Movie Maker is not starting. It shows the error as shown in the image 1. I even try to update the driver of graphics card but it is already latest version. Can anyone know what preventing the Movie Maker from starting. Any help will be worth.

Have you tried to reinstall the program? Possibly uninstalling then reinstalling? I know this is part of Microsoft Essentials now.

The error also states that this may have to do with bad drivers. Have you checked those as well?
If all else fails try running the program in Compatibility Mode.
