Win7 Windows Movie Maker won't run in XP mode

March 4, 2011 at 11:25:51
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits, Core 2
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits and installed the XP mode. It came with Windows Movie Maker installed, but when I want to run it, I receive the message: "Windows Movie Maker cannot be used with Remote Desktop Connection or Terminal Services". What does this mean? I like this software, the other that comes with Windows 7, "Windows DVD Maker" I cannot put the video clips and pictures in the sequence that I choose, it separates the movies from the pictures and then I have them out of the sequence I took them. Any suggestion?

Also Movie Maker should work in XP mode, since it works on WIndows XP.

Did you install Movie Maker while in WinXp mode?

I suggest you try running Movie Maker directly from Windows 7. I have found programs running in XP mode to be much slower. I have ample RAM installed but it really drags.

I am sure you can configure Live Essentials to only use the features you want.

Thanks for your reply. I could choose what I wanted installed from Live Essentials. The Movie software from Live Essentials tells me it opens the projects from Movie Maker (.MSWMM), but when I try to open them, it says that the file may be corrupt. I just used the file in Windows XP and there the same works fine... It will be a lot of work to make the projects all new... :-(
