As many of you know by now, Microsoft has decided to not include certain features to Windows 8. One of these features was Windows Movie Maker, which allowed users to create their own video files with pictures, movies or other media and add certain effects to it.

Even though there is no Windows Movie Maker for Windows 8 integrated with the operating system, users can still download and install it on their computers. The product can be downloaded for free from the Microsoft website and installed on any computer running Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.

Download and install Windows Movie Maker on Windows 8

If you want to download and install Windows Movie Maker on any Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 device, all you need to do is head over to the Microsoft website and download the installer (or you can follow this direct download link for Movie Maker). This will save the file named “wlsetup-web.exe” on your computer. When you run this file, it will install .NET Framework 3.5 on your device, as it is necessary to install Movie Maker.

Note: If you have .NET Framework 3.5.1 on your computer, it will proceed directly with the Movie Maker installation

When the process has started, you will see the Windows Live Essentials installer open, and you will have the option to install some other features to your Windows 8 computer. In the Windows Live Essentials window, you will see two options that are available to you: install all the tools from this package, or customize the installation and add only the tools you need. If you only want Movie Maker, then you should go with the latter.

Once you’ve selected what you want to install, all you need to do is click on the “Install” button. Wait until the process has finished and click “Close“. Now you will have Windows Movie Maker on your Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 computer,

As you can see, the process is very simple, and it doesn’t require anything except a working Internet connection and a couple of minutes of your time. Now, you can start creating videos with Movie Maker in WIndows 8.

    Hi,
    I already had windows movie maker on windows 8 but as soon as it was updated to windows 8.1 , it stopped working along with the windows media player giving me this message – I attached a picture.
    I am updated with every system requirement and video cards needed.
    Do you have any suggestion what could be the problem?

    Thanks
