AFTER REVERTING BACK TO WINDOWS 7 PRO FROM WINDOWS 10, I CAN NO LONGER USE PAINT, PHOTO GALLERY, MOVIE MAKER

Q: AFTER REVERTING BACK TO WINDOWS 7 PRO FROM WINDOWS 10, I CAN NO LONGER USE PAINT, PHOTO GALLERY, MOVIE MAKER

I do not know if I am posting in the right location. If not, please forgive me. I am getting ready to launch my own campaign against Microsoft for ruining yet another laptop.I really believe that Microsoft looks into my laptop to determine what it
is that I use the most and when they know they go about destroying the integrity of the programs.After being forced, not my consent, to upgrade to windows 10, my laptop has all kinds of errors. I do not have time to try and find out how to fix it.
I have spent hours already trying to figure out how to get my Windows 7 Pro to function as it should. I purchased this laptop March 2015 brand new because it had Windows 7 Pro and that is what I want to use.I have not tried to reinstall windows yet.
This is the last resort for me since it is so difficult to get a reliable backup..Please help me to recover from Microsoft's intrusive behavior#1WHEN I REBOOT COMPUTER#2 WHEN TRYING TO OPEN PHOTO GALLERY#3 PHOTO GALLERY#4 Movie Maker#5 WHAT PAINT LOOKS LIKE
NOW, NO TOOLS#6 WINDOWS VERSION

I recommend downloading and trying SP Photo Recovery. It will help find and retrieve your lost files.

I've used it in the past to recover photos, music, videos, and other multimedia files, regardless if the file has been deleted, lost, damaged or corrupted.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/UDbKNE. (This link will open the download page so you can save a copy to your computer.)

To uninstall all the installed programs that were included in Windows Live Essentials, I went to control panel > Programs & Features and selected Windows Live Essentials. Then repair/uninstall. I choose to remove the features listed and choose all but Mail. I got many error messages and error numbers, so I decided to delete them one at a time. This worked perfectly until I reached the program in the title above.

This is what appeared: We couldn't remove the selected program. Unknown error occurred. Error: 0x80070645 Source: SQLLite.

What does the named error mean and what does SQLLite have to do with WLE?

That program is the one I wanted to remove most, because it's taken over opening Slide Shows and than fails to work. Will someone please, help me remove this thorn in my side?

I have several vcd that I made of scanned slides with Nikon Picture Project on a Windows XP. Now I have a different computer and it has Vista Home Premium 64 bit. I can put the vcd in and it will play on media player and I was able to save it to Movie Maker- sort of. ( It sounded as if it was saving...) It will play the vcd on movie maker, but it will not play unless the vcd is in the dvd player of the tower even though the icon is in movie maker .

So, my question is two fold: 1. Is it possible to get the vcd saved to the computer for use in Movie Maker and 2. Is it possible to break down the photos into individual photos rather than the entire video? Thank you.

When I double-click on a .jpg image file nothing happens. When I right-click the photo and select Open With and select Windows Photo Gallery nothing happens. I've restarted Windows and still the problem persists.

The problem seems to have started when I unwittingly tried to view a .gif image by double-clicking it, which didn't do anything (because I didn't realize that Microsoft no longer supports this common format). I then opened Windows Photo Gallery and tried to open it through the program and nothing happened, of course. But since then it won't open my .jpg files in any fashion. Other programs, such as Photoshop and Paint open them just fine, but those programs won't let me thumb through a slideshow of pictures.

Maybe the release of SP1 will fix this?

Any ideas? Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Windows Photo Gallery (Vista) No Longer Working

Update:

After realizing that Windows Photo Gallery was only not working in this one directory I was trying to view photos in, I did some sleuthing to figure out why. I found the cause by process of elimination (although I have no understanding of it). I took out all the other files in the folder and copied them back in one by one until finally discovering that Windows Photo Gallery wouldn't open photos while this one file was in the folder. It was a normal .html link for Google Maps directions that I had saved a while back; it had no special characters in the name. There were other Google Maps links in there too, but Windows Photo Gallery only took issue with that one file. Wherever that file was, Windows Photo Gallery wouldn't open photos in that directory. I shouldn't think that Windows Photo Gallery should be concerned with links anyway, so this is beyond me. The solution for me was to just delete the directions, which I no longer needed.

hi,

to keep it as short as possible, i simply want to revert back to the original WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER that came with XP. i loved using it and was overjoyed when i became aware of WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER 2--that is until i downloaded it and it got quirky on me (unlike the original version). now i'm very sorry i "upgraded".

problem is, when i attempt to uninstall MM2, i can't find it in the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in the CONTROL PANEL. i did a SEARCH, but i'm afraid of removing it that way for fear i may screw up something else. even if i were able to successfully uninstall MM2, where would i find MM1 to reinstall?

i don't have the original WINDOWS XP cd, as it didn't come with my pc--only a recovery disk. i can't do a RESTORE, for reasons i won't burden you with.

i'd really love to have the original WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER back, but not at the cost of corrupting anything else, as i have enough (unrelated) problems with my pc right now. if there is a way to uninstall MM2 and reinstall MM1 would you please explain how it can be done?

of course i'd appreciate any help you may give me regarding this matter, but if you can't, i thank you just the same as you've been so generously helpful to me in the past.

Hi TheGreatGazoo,

Welcome to the forum.

It really just depends on what features are more useful to you. It seems that Windows Live Photo Gallery will work seamlessly with Live Spaces.

You can compare the features from the two at these links to see which one you like better.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium on my laptop. Fairly new to computers, but in the last 2 years I have loaded photos from a digital camera, and also from a scanner. I have successfully emailed some of them. Yesterday, when trying to get the full knowledge about how to use the Photo Gallery, I realised that I have Windows Photo Gallery, and also Windows Live Photo Gallery installed. It seems that both can be used without any problem. However, when I have been in 'Live Gallery' a message will appear that '.... Live Gallery has stopped working.' followed by a prompt- should I report this to help with a repair, which I always do;then another prompt to close the programme. Next time I use Live Gallery everything is fine, then eventually the same prompts again appear.
Am I doing something incorrectly ? From what I have gathered trawling around here, the Live Gallery has extra features not found in Photo Gallery.
Thanks for any forthcoming simple guidance and explanations.

The Microsoft photo viewer that came with the PC is useless - it has no options or features! Help please or suggestions!!!!

I don't know what's wrong with it. All I know is,, it's NOT normal that the remianing time is 1 million minutes over night. No! I'd def. cancel it once. Then, I'd save the project, restart the comp, open the saved project, and give just one more try with the same output setting, but I'd only wait for 30 seconds to 1 minute at longest to see if the remainig time starts going down. If that doesn't work, i'd cancel, and change the output setting. maybe you don't have a codec necessary to encode whatever output format you chose. If you change the output, then, it may work..

(Note: I don't mean saving the project file)

Okay, so. My friend's the one who's actually having this trouble, and I thought I'd help her out. So, I have all the files--including the project file she used--on my machine. I got the exact same message that she did--the message in question:
When she told me this problem, I'd assumed it was her PC. Yet, I've gotten the exact same error on my machine. Now, number one: I have all the source files. Number two: I have well over 300 GB of space, and 4 gigs of RAM. Yet, the video will not save, regardless of what I try. I've loaded in every missing file associated with it, and I've run the entire video through the preview--perfectly.

Now... I have two things that I'd like to ask: number one, is there a way to either force WMM to save it to a video file? And two: is there another video-editing program that will allow me to use a WMM project file, or that will allow me to convert a .mswmm [WMM] project file to a project file for their system?

(I know, I probably shouldn't have volunteered to help, but I couldn't help it. So, if anyone can help me out here, ANY assistance would be greatly appreciated.)

I am working on someone else's computer and they are having Windows Update problems. Not a single update can install. It downloads, installs, and restarts, but on boot, it undoes all changes. I have tried installing only one (of 100+) but it still fails. I have tried CCleaner for registry/cache issues, sfc /scannow (twice, both the first thing and last thing I tried), and the Windows Update Troubleshooter (it finds lots of issues but can't fix them).
This may or may not be related to the problem recently (when I started working on the computer) that Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 won't open any photos. The program itself opens, but clicking on a photo gives an error message and clicking OK crashes the program. Windows Photo Viewer says "Loading" forever, too. I have tried the Windows Live Essentials troubleshooter, uninstalling (it fails), installing again (it fails), and manually deleting registry entries and folders (was suggested to me), rebooting, and installing again, and it still fails.
Adding to the corruption, there are some document files that won't delete (file doesn't exit error, while still listed). This has been happening for years, and I have yet to find a solution for them.

I am working on someone else's computer and they are having Windows Update problems. Not a single update can install. It downloads, installs, and restarts, but on boot, it undoes all changes. I have tried installing only one (of 100+) but it still fails. I have tried CCleaner for registry/cache issues, sfc /scannow (twice, both the first thing and last thing I tried), and the Windows Update Troubleshooter (it finds lots of issues but can't fix them).
This may or may not be related to the problem recently (when I started working on the computer) that Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 won't open any photos. The program itself opens, but clicking on a photo gives an error message and clicking OK crashes the program. Windows Photo Viewer says "Loading" forever, too. I have tried the Windows Live Essentials troubleshooter, uninstalling (it fails), installing again (it fails), and manually deleting registry entries and folders (was suggested to me), rebooting, and installing again, and it still fails.
Adding to the corruption, there are some document files that won't delete (file doesn't exit error, while still listed). This has been happening for years, and I have yet to find a solution for them.

The system is a Sony Vaio laptop (about 3 years old) running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Right now I only have access with TeamViewer, but I can get physical access tomorrow if needed.

Are these problems related? Can they be fixed? I've been working... Read more

I have used MS DVD Movie Maker for some time and with success. All slide show projects have related to individual groups of photos, ie: trips, hikes, etc. This time, I want to be able create a slide show of my grandson's four birthdays and to be able to separate each year as a different scene accessible from the main menu. Try as I may, I simply cannot figure out how to do this. Is there a way of accomplishing this feat and, if not, any suggestions???

I cant say as you could even do it with Movie Maker, but I know this works well and it's free.

OS is Vista Home Premium. I'm using Windows Movie Maker to edit home videos (add music, shorten videos) in attempt to make DVD. When I try to use Windows DVD Maker to create a DVD it stalls during "encoding". I've tried to make a DVD using the same videos with just Windows DVD Maker - it worked. I then tried to use the same videos in Movie Maker (un-edited) and then make DVD with Windows DVD Maker - it worked. It seems to be some type of encoding issue. How can I solve this issue?

A:Windows Movie Maker to DVD Maker mess

If it is working with unedited files it may be a problem with the audio(music) files and their encoding. Try with some other music files from a different source and see if that allows you to burn.
You could try downloading and installing GSpot 2.70a an analysis tool, usually used for video analysis, but will analyse audio as well. Once installed open it and open your music file in it. On the LHS panel it will tell you which audio codec is needed to encode/decode your file and if you have the correct codec on your computer.
The K-Lite codec pack (link in my signature) has a number of audio and video codecs bundled and may be worth installing.

I worked for hours on a video, but windows movie maker won't let me save it. I had the files in a WMV format and took them straight off of a flash drive to edit in the program. I've checked that I have enough memory on my computer, and I just don't know what else to do!

Good morning,

i'm editing a custom video of images synced with music track however, when i try to click anywhere within the middle of the full video editing, it automatically desyncs the music by 2 seconds further than where the images should be lined up with.

example.
Playing from start, it has the first 6 box frames lined up perfectly with the song hitting a key point of 16.80 seconds.

but when ever i try to make an edit in the middle of it, for some odd reason the music plays at 18.60.

it is very bothersome to try and edit this entire piece without having to relisten the whole entire track over and over.

can someone help me find out why this is breaking up the sync? i need to get this project done for presentation and i cannot waste more time by rewatching it from beginning repeatedly just to make a few edits.

thank you.

A:Windows Movie maker Desyncing mid movie.

whats the duration of each of the images for the music ?

the default is 7.0 sec
But if you have changed , then when you click on the image to change - it will show the audio time from the start of the image

you can also split the music track and see then the duration and start/stop times in the music editor section

I created a short small movie (just under 11MB) in WMM. I imported a youtube clip that I converted from FLV to WMV. I also added a soundtrack (MP3). The only other aspects of the design were some subtitles. No real special effects to speak of.

When I try to save the movie it stops at 75%. It tells me that I have one of three problems:
-not enough memory in destination file (I know I am ok here)
-make sure original source files are available (WHAT IS THIS?)
-saving location is available (it is).

I am trying to save it for use on my computer. I actually want to use it for a meeting I am doing and project it on a screen.

What am I doing wrong?

A:Saving a movie in Windows Movie Maker

Your second point - "Make sure original source files are available" - You should be okay in this part too since you're able to start saving, which means the files you are using are located in your computer.

That means you're 3 for 3 and you should not be experiencing any problems at all, which means the problem lies elsewhere.

Need more to go on.

Try using a WMA file instead of MP3 and see if that works for you.
