    Video editing software compatibility


    Hello all,
    Can anyone tell me if there is a version of Windows Movie Maker that will work with Windows 8? Windows customer support was less than helpful Thank you.

    Windows Live Movie Maker which you can only get by installing Microsoft Live Essentials, just choose Move Maker and Photo Gallery, uncheck the rest. The one I have is version 2012 build 16.4.3505.092. But I also have version 2.6 which can be found on Microsoft I believe.

    With Windows Movie Maker 2012 it may come up with the following error when you try to run it:

    "Sorry, Movie Maker can’t start. Make sure your computer meets the minimum system requirements before trying to start Movie maker again, and then try to update the driver for your video card if Movie Maker still doesn’t start."

    If you get this, you will need to right click the Movie Maker icon on the Start Page, then go to 'open file location'. You will then be able to right click the shortcut link, go to compatibility tab and select 'Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows 7'.
