I was editing an important movie project in 6.0 when my vista laptop died. I saved the hard disk to an external drive, and I have followed instructions here as best I am able to salvage my wmm 6.0 folder and my project files from my 32 bit vista machine. I put the movie maker folder in program files (x86), downloaded the zip file here, extracted and ran as administrator, but I am stumped at registering the dlls. Like lunaisthebest, I get the error message about "make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it. . . ."

I have spent days online reading stuff I hardly understand and trying various ways to register these. Is it really possible? Can anyone help me?

I could download 2.6 and start over with editing, but I hate to.

(and I'll need this in everyday language, please.)

Thanks for your kindness.

You won't need to register any dll's if you use this post 48

Just d/l the 3 files.

Extract with 7 zip.

Run the .exe.

It will install for you.

Thank you for re-posting this. I had been thinking that option required registering dlls too.

I have done all per instructions, however when I unzip (it says "extract", actually)the 001 file with 7-zip it gives me a winzip file with the extension .7z . I really am using 7-zip -- not winzip. I can't find an .exe file (I even ran a computer search). When I right click either the .7z or the .001 file I can click properties, but can't find any "unblock" command or any way to run as administrator. It says I have full privileges and all that.

I did previously enable administrator privileges as a command prompt, so that might explain it, but it won't let me simply open the file either. It says it's not a valid archive. And I don't get a "run" or "run as administrator" option when I right click or plain click.

Hope this makes sense.
thanks so much for your help.

Hi prblmchild,

Because you can't post .7zip files onto this forum, each of those is a regular windows .zip folder.

In side each .zip folder is a .7zip file.

1. Extract each .zip into the same folder like this:

Windows Movie Maker 6.0 - Install on Windows 7-mm-1.jpg


2. You now have 3 .7zip files. Extract the .001 with 7-zip program , like this:

Windows Movie Maker 6.0 - Install on Windows 7-mm-2.jpg



3. You will see a new folder :

Windows Movie Maker 6.0 - Install on Windows 7-mm-3.jpg



4. Inside that is the setup.exe:

Windows Movie Maker 6.0 - Install on Windows 7-mm-4.jpg

not getting yellow folders when I download

SIW2

Thanks so much.
Do you have any idea why I used to be getting yellow folders when I downloaded (I deleted those, thinking I had messed up) but now I get file icons which say 7z on them and don't behave like folders (you can't put one inside the other)? They are called Windows Movie Maker Setup.7z (3).zip (etc.)

When I click on the links in this forum, I get the option to open with a program (it suggests 7-zip) or save. I clicked save, and it goes to my downloads folder. If i click open with 7-zip, it puts it into a 7-zip window. Either way I get a file now -- not a folder. It's the same no matter which of the links I click on (they were posted multiple times.)

Also, when I WAS getting the folders and putting them inside each other, I did not get the options you are getting when I right clicked. Here is what I got in the dropdown: (I still get these options with the current files).

Open
Scan with AVG
Open with> (7-zip file manager, Windows Explorer, WinRAR Archiver, Winzip, choose default program)
Share with> (Nobody, homegroup, specific people)
Extract files
Extract here
Extract to Windows Movie Maker Setup .7z\ (these last three are winRAR icons)
Send to
Cut
Copy
Create Shortcut
Delete
Rename
Properties

I tried both "open with> 7-zip file manager" and "Extract to [with winRAR]" before. Should I just delete the 40 day trial versions of winrar and winzip? Are they messing me up?
Thankx

You seem to be having an isuue with all those compression apps. fighting for your attention.

Probabaly best to uninstall ( not delete) winrar and winzip.

Installed (minus projects)

Thanks. I did uninstall those. Never got those yellow folders back, but I did extract the files and mysteriously find the .exe file inside the 7-zip window and open it-- finally.

The install wizzard ran, and now, like many others, my original source video is all that's in "imported media". No clips. And my projects won't play because the program can't find my clips. . . Alas! These are my artist demo videos.

What was Microsoft thinking to not allow us a way to access our unfinished projects? Wouldn't people be upset if that happened to their documents? "Sorry. You'll just have to start over from scratch." Reallly!

Well, Thank you for the detailed screen shots and all. Pressing onward.

project files found

Another forum told me to double click on the red Xs and browse for my source file (evidently I had moved the file since creating the project) and it worked (after a couple of failed attempts). Now the clips show up in the timeline.

I've had to do that for each project, even though they were all edited from the same source file.

Whew!
Thanks again.
