    Start a thread at microsoft forum,add more detail like model & make of computer & operating system also copy paste error from message

    Keep in mind movie maker is years old it's replacement in win 7 is dvd maker,there are alternatives some are free.
    freebies:
    dvdstyler
    lightworks


    others,you could try over at sourceforge as well

    i had issues installing it before i activated windows.after activation it worked fine,you can also get older versions (of movie maker) from other places.
