Windows 7 - Need older version of Movie Maker

Asked By Erni on 24-Jul-08 04:20 PM
Windows Movie Maker somehow got updated to the newer version, but I prefer
the older version.  How can I obtain the older version of Movie Maker?

Newer version, older version?    There are at least 5 versions of WMM that I
know about.

What is your Operating System, your newer version number and what older
version do you want?

If you have recently done a service pack upgrade to version 2 or 3 to
Windows XP you automatically got a newer version of WMM (2.1) from 2.0 or
1.1.  1.0 should still be on your machine.


See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Movie_Maker for more information.
