    Windows Movie Maker Live on Windows 7 MSI

    Hi All,
    I have recently being learning about group policy and software installtions.
    As I am still learning I may need a few extra steps explained to me.

    I would like to deploy movie maker live as an MSI.
    I would like to disable items not needed in running Movie Maker and also be able to save to a shared drive.

    Thank you

    Anything from Windows Live Essentials is very difficult to deploy using GPO software installation, even without customisation (which is largely impossible). There are literally dozens of MSIs in the main installer package, and I don't know if anyone has identified which pre-requisites you'd need to install for each individual product. I strongly suspect one of the pre-reqs for Movie Maker is DirectX 9, which is a .exe install only.

    I deployed the .exe instead using System Center, but the same process can be used with Local Update Publisher if you have a WSUS server. Otherwise you're probably looking at a logon script, but that's not my area of expertise.

    i tried using the msis's and i did eventually get it to work but i ended up with so much garbage as well. Best bet would probably to use something like winstall on a vm set it up how you want it and capture an msi like that

    I know older versions had this problem (this is the workaround) but I'm using the latest version and can save to the network just fine without any alterations.

    Personally i used System center essentials and deploy it as a package there using the following flags:
    wlsetup-all.exe /q /NoLaunch /NoToolbarCEIP /NoHomepage /NoSearch /AppSelect:Writer,MovieMaker

    Can also do that manually per machine if you give it the path to wlsetup-all.exe

    Here's the command line to install Movie Maker. You also have to install Picture Gallery, it's a prerequisite. I didn't want any other apps included either, but this was as trimmed down as I could get it. I can look up what the switches mean if you need to know. It's been a while since I set it up.

    wlsetup-all.exe /AppSelect:MovieMaker /NOToolbarCEIP /NOhomepage /Nolaunch /NOMO /nosearch /q

    You need 3 Packages deployed in this order:

    1) WindowsLiveSync.msi (1.4meg)
    2) PhotoLibrary.msi (18.3meg)
    3) MovieMaker.msi (6.6meg)

    Good luck.

    Just download Movie Maker for Windows Vista (v6 I think) and make an MSI using that. I wouldn't go near WLE with a bargepole and used WMM from Vista to deploy onto Win7.

    FYI, according to this post ... windows live sync/msi - Microsoft Community ... the WindowsLiveSync has been replaced with MeshRuntime.msi
