Windows Movie Maker for Windows 98

Recommended Posts

marxo    0

Recently, I found a stable version of Windows Movie Maker from Windows Me, that can possibly run on Windows 98. I have tested it successfully on Windows 98 and as far as I can see, the only requirement is that you install Windows Media Player 7 or higher.

Now, I've packed it to "Build 1" of Windows Movie Maker for Windows 98, basically the default Windows Me Movie Maker ported to Windows 98. It isn't actually a build, but you can expect some improvements for the next build.

Includes:

  • It's very light, it doesn't contain the Tour, so you will get an error on the first run informing you that "tour.hta" is not present.
  • It contains Help file which is copied to the proper location, so the Help is functional.
  • It will be copied to %windir%WMM so you'll have to drag a shortcut to the desktop.

Requirements:

  • I've read that you don't need anything to run it, but to actually save the video, you will need Windows Media Player 7 or higher installed (as on Windows Me).

No screenshot, this is all temporary, but still functional.

If windows media player codec are installed then will it still be necessary to install windows media player 7 for it to export files.

You don't need the WM7x Player to run Moviemaker, the 6.4 one ( the classic one ) is enough to resolve the dependencies of MMaker 1.x,

you must have the wma/wmv codecs installed , just use the wm9codecs from Microsofts website and it will work as they are backwards compatible.

By the way for Win2000:

the Millennium MMaker runs also in all its glory under Windows 2000, just copy the complete programs->Movie Maker folder from ME over to 2000, register the dlls and ready to go.

And Win2000 has no WMplayer 7.x per default.

Another hint for XP :

the downloadable Moviemaker 2.6 for Vista installs and runs in XP and Server03, if you edit the msi with orca ( NT600 replace with NT 501 ).

All above was tested by me .

I love Moviemaker :thumbup
