Well been awhile since I've came here. But I recently installed Windows 7 Home premium, and I noticed their isn't no windows movie maker or anything to make movies with. I've been looking at the microsoft/windows site for a download for it, and latest 1's I found was in 2008.

So if anyone can help me find a link to download a newer version of windows movie maker for windows 7?

tsk tsk tsk...

Just do a google for a free good movie editor. I'm sure there are plenty better things than what Microsoft gives you for free. Or if you want to stick with that, I would assume that 2008 version is the latest.

Scratch that, they changed over to Windows Live Movie Maker. I guess they just enjoy putting "live" into the title of everything now, eh?

yea the actually told us windows 7 users they didn't bother putting it in there, so they told us to download the live movie maker from vista. I personally can't imagine why they couldn't update it a bit for windows 7 but what do I really care?

There's always a work around ;)

Movie Maker is now a part of Windows live essentials. That's a Windows 7 feature if I'm not mistaken.

Windows Live Movie Maker is one more example of why Windows Live Essentials are must-have applications for people using Windows. With the goal of making it easy to communicate and share with the people you care about, we’re continually updating these applications to ensure they take advantage of the best Windows has to offer. With today’s release, you will be able to see a variety of ways Windows Live Movie Maker takes advantage of Windows 7 including expanded support for HD video so you can create great looking movies using the most popular devices on the market – including your mobile phone or Flip Video camcorder

Change isn’t always easy, and I know there have been some growing pains as we’ve moved from Windows Movie Maker to Windows Live Movie Maker. I want to address one thing we think you might be concerned about – OS support. As Mike mentioned in his earlier post, in order to take advantage of the latest and greatest technologies available on the Windows platform, we optimized the new Windows Live Movie Maker for Windows Vista and Windows 7. As a result you get support for newer file formats like HD, a new graphics driver model which brings more reliable and stable support for high-end graphics, and a new engine on top of DirectX, which improves speed and enables even more advanced capabilities over time. If you’re still using Windows XP, Windows Movie Maker 2.1 for Windows XP is still a great option.

When we told you that Movie Maker was becoming part of Windows Live Essentials we said we believed that doing this would enable us to provide you with software updates more often. We’re excited to introduce the new Windows Live Movie Maker today with so many great new features because we think it delivers on that promise – we’re continually updating the Windows Live applications so you can communicate, share, and keep your life in sync. Grab some photos or video clips and give it a try!

The new "AutoMovie" feature in WLMM sounds interesting.
