    Unhappy Permissions issue - Windows Movie Maker

    Hi Guys,

    At the risk of looking stupid... I can't seem to find the correct registry setting/folder permission to allow pupils to import any content into windows movie maker, unforuntely we are still xp clients across the board so we can't just give up and move to the newest version.

    Basically, when you are logged on as a pupil and you press any of the buttons at the top left (see screenshot) they depress to show you have clicked it, but then nothing happens. When logged in as an admin this is fine and works perfectly with network shares etc... Have tried giving full control to c:\windows, c:\docs and settings and c:\program files. Have tried all registry value changes i have been able to find on google but still no avail.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks,
    Nile

    I'm not entirely sure it's the same problem, but we had problems with people adding content to windows live movie maker from a network folder.. It came up with an error saying you can't add files from network locations.

    To get round it we had to create a registry hack for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Movie Maker (I'm guessing yours won't be in windows live)
    Created a new DWORD called ALLOWNETWORKFILES
    Then each user had to run the hack before it would allow them access to network locations. (We only had a couple of staff members though).

    Could be a wild stab in the dark, but it worked here.
