Windows We're really on the subject of software installation issues on OSNews lately, and this story, making its rounds on the internet, fits in quite well. Back in the day, during the antitrust lawsuits against Microsoft, Microsoft had to make a whole slew of corporate email public. In light of Gates' imminent withdrawal from Microsoft, SeattlePI dug up a little gem among these emails, one in which Bill Gates goes on a full-blown rant about the difficulties he had trying to download and install Windows MovieMaker, back in 2003.

No, really. It's a tad different though, but I'm also trying to get Movie Maker. (Need to do some *very basic* video editing, thought Movie Maker was right for the job.)

I go to MS.com and search of Movie Maker and find Movie Maker download site quickly. There it says if I upgrade to XP SP2 I get movie maker.

The problem is: I'm on XP SP3.

On the side it also said I should see on Windows Update and get it there. So I checked. No Windows Movie Maker.

I am not sure, but I think it comes with Windows. Check Add/Remove Windows components

It's not there, that was one of the first places I've checked.
