    I am running W7 and cannot get Photostory to install so I can resave my original WP3 files as WMV. I have tried expression encoder and it cannot parse the xml file. I installed AVS converter and that does not recognize Wp3 either.

    Any ideas? :confused:

    found this option on the net.

    WP3 = Microsoft Photo Story 3 file format.

    No, you can't convert it directly.

    What you do is create AVI from WP3 using Photo Story, then edit AVI via movie maker.

    Hope it helps...

    Thanks much - the problem though is I am running Win7 and cannot install PS on this OS. I think I need to install XP on an old machine and just do this whole thing on a sep machine.
