    Windows Movie Maker Windows 7

    Hi,

    Has anyone managed to get Windows Movie Maker installed on Windows 7? Someone suggested to use 2.6 for Windows Vista. It installed on my 7 x64 machine but for the x32 machine it says the app is for Windows Vista only.

    Thanks

    I just installed windows live essentials 2011 and chose live movie maker from the tick box selection. Seems fine on my machine. Win 7 pro sp1 32 bit.

    Hope that helps.

    Found the only way is to do from the Internet as TechieWills says.

    Bit of a pain up the rear end as either has to be done at image build or manaully at each machine due to no MSI/EXE been available. Also you may have issues downloading if behind a county filtering system as my last place did.

    We have Movie Maker 2.6 running across all 280 windows 7 laptops here. Installed perfectly fine, didnt need to change anything, although 2.6 is for XP.

    I've installed version 2.6 on many Windows 7 x86 machines, no problems.

    Using the live version installed using the following command line:
    wlsetup-all.exe /q /NoLaunch /NoToolbarCEIP /NoHomepage /NoSearch /AppSelect:Writer,MovieMaker

    Can be done that way through SCCM/SCE as well.

    EDIT: I should add that kudos goes to AngryTechnicians blog for this.

    I should of mentioned the download bit, I had to connect my Desire to a laptop and download it as BGFL blocked it. Your also bang on about the lack of MSI, its a killer but luckily we only have a few Win 7 Clients at the moment.

    Hi guys,

    I needed up using the .exe in the link in blog. I added it to the application deployment script and it works a treat.

    Thanks

    I whacked it on our server instead of the PCs, as I needed it in a rush. That worked okay, but it wasn't seeing heavy use.
