March 11, 2010
Running Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7 can be a daunting task, because it is not available on Windows 7 by default, just like it has been available on Windows XP, and Windows Vista; here’s a guide to run Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker on Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
Windows Movie Maker for Windows 7
Microsoft recommends downloading the latest Windows Live Suite, which includes Windows Live Movie Maker (WLMM) for Windows 7.
Microsoft Windows Movie Maker
Experienced users will want to continue with what they’ve become accustomed to, but Microsoft has turned deaf regarding requests for integrating Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7.

However, it is noteworthy that special Vista edition MM2.6 is found to download, install, and work perfectly fine for Windows 7 Operating System as well.
Importing Videos With Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7
Apart from latest version of Windows Movie Maker, the Windows Live Suite also presents you with a video import wizard for connecting Digital Camcorder or mini-DV via firewire.
More so, MM1 and MM2.1 can also capture video in Windows 7 from my mini-DV camcorder via firewire.
Imported video clips can be found in Windows Live Photo Gallery or inserted into collections of the classic versions of the Windows Movie Maker.
Running Multiple Versions of Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7 or Windows Vista
Basically installing Windows Movie Maker in Windows Vista is pretty much straightforward, and we’ve seen what it takes to actually run Windows Movie Maker on Windows 7 Operating System.
However, it is even possible to run multiple versions of Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7 too.
Making Video Clips from Still Pictures in Windows Movie Maker
For creating neat Ken Burns style video clips from still pictures, Photo Story 3 is probably one of the best bets. Initially, it was developed for XP, and then the trend continued for Windows Vista and finally Windows 7.
Video clips created from these pictures can be even used in Windows Live Movie Maker or classic Movie Maker projects.
Note: You may have problems in installing Photo Story 3 on the final Windows 7 release copy. However, Microsoft has tweaked around to fix this issue.
In a Nutshell
Windows Movie Maker has been one of the hot favorites amongst the digital video editing apps. Running Microsoft Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7 may not be pretty easy, and there are a number of other software available for the advanced level users.
