Hi,
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, and my on-board graphics are "Intel 865G Video Chipset".
I want to run Windows Movie Maker in Windows 7, but when i attempt to start it, it says "The video card installed on this computer doesn't meet the minimum system requirements for Windows Movie Maker.".

Is there any way to run/use it without a supported WDDM video driver or elsewhere? If not, then can I get the Windows Movie Maker version from Windows XP to run on it? and from where can I download the XP version when I will have to install it as an alternative?

It's the on-board graphics that's the problem not the driver, it just isn't capable to do the job.As you have already been informed.
"The video card installed on this computer doesn't meet the minimum system requirements for Windows Movie Maker.".
That says it all.
You can't use the one from XP, it's not supported.
You may be able to use XP mode seeing you have Ultimate to run the XP version.

Just purchase a decent video card and install.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I read the other post. They pretty much covered it. You have only an AGP graphics card and an older P4 socket 478 CPU. I would not have put Windows 7 on it, I would have left it Windows XP and waited to go to Windows 7 until you can get newer hardware to run it on. As in your other post, you have limited options now for AGP video cards and they are at a premium price. Without the volume sales they can get on the more modern PCI express socket cards, they cannot afford to continue making a decent card for a mostly obsolete socket without charging a premium price. You will need to save up for a new system soon so don't go overboard on this old (maybe new to you, but old it is) system, it will not keep you happy for long.
