Downloaded Windows Live Essentials but no Movie Maker
I chose only to download the Movie Maker and its seemed to download all but.

Cannot locate the Movie Maker.

Checked All Programs in the Start Menu

Checked the C: drive:Program files

Typed moviemaker.exe and movie*.exe in the start search box

Its no where.

Uninstalled and installed Windows Essentials and Movie Maker is there, but cannot install as don't have minimum requirements.

For Movie Maker 2012: Video card or video driver that supports Microsoft DirectX 10.0 (or later).

I have DDI 9ex

If I installed Essentials 2011, Movie Maker 2011: Video card or video driver that supports Microsoft DirectX 9.0c (or later) and Pixel Shader 2.0 (or later).

I updated Display adapter, but Essentials 2011 do I have minimum requriements?
