Windows 7: Windows Movie Maker 6.0 - Install on Windows 7

15 Nov 2011   #110

Windows 7 Home Professional 32bit
No sound on video clips!

I have followed the instructions in this thread and successfully installed Windows Movie Maker 6.0.

However, when I import an .mpg file, there is no sound, though there is a visible waveform in the timeline.

Please help!

Hi wolfy1339, welcome to 7F!

See if this helps: How to Install Windows Movie Maker 6.0 on Windows 7
Pay particular attention to SIW2, and whs's posts. SIW2 starts at post #11, and whs at post #13

SIW2 can get the 32bit version to run on x64 machines follow his instructions. Install it in Program Files(x86), register the .dlls

whs has a link to the files at post #13, and SWI2 has some .zip files at post #28.

Read the whole Tutorial.

Hi burdok33, welcome to 7F!

An interesting concept, you would of course have to use the pertinent files for Windows Photo Gallery (WPG).

Try following this tutorial: Windows Movie Maker 6.0 - Install on Windows 7, only substitute the WPG from the Vista disk, the one problem?

You need a Photo download file instead of the listed there.

See if the instructions here help: Windows photo gallery Install

I believe this is similar, but clearer to the instructions in the above link: Where is Windows Photo Gallery in Windows 7?

Windows 7 64Bit

Hi guys, there's a few threads, i hope this is useful in this one:

I just used this installer:

Videoconferencing and Video Capture Tools

I use w7x64, it installed here: "C:\Program Files\Movie Maker".

According to "" it works for x64 and 32bit.
Fresh Install Windows Movie Maker 6.0 in Windows 7 with Windows Movie Maker Installer
Note: Both Windows Live Movie Maker and Windows Movie Maker 6.0 may be installed side-by-side if needed. This installer supports both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
Seems to work fine, but i haven't used it extensively as yet.

I ran MalwareBytes and MSE on the installer, then on the whole system: no issues detected. I always worry about such things.
