    What? Both? I've tried the exact same file on another computer and it worked fine, I've also redownloaded 3 times.

    If its installing from USB, copy the file to your computer before installing.

    Well are both of them .msi files ? if yes then try another .msi file & if you get the same error then I guess something is wrong with your windows installer .

    A windows reinstallation should fix it but there are probably other ways to fix it that I don't know about .

    Windows installer issues? Maybe you don't have the admin privileges enabled to install stuff onto that location (which the app requires to work). Repeat the installation but before anything right-click on the installer, then "run as administrator".

    That isn't there for .msi files.
    I only installed windows 7 last week. I have been having problems since then. I retried installing twice, from different downloads. One pirated, one legit from microsoft subscriber.

    msi files usually come with an .exe executable. And windows installer handles all MSI /Microsoft Installers unless the installer is custom. And since we'er talking about Windows Movie Maker...

    maybe that doesn't work on W7?

    As last resource, you may want to use a VM and do video editing there

    My old computer, which it worked on, was 32 bit win7. That isn't the case.
