Window Live Movie Maker "WLMM" has been renamed and updated by WMM 2012 .. see Here

I don't think there is any way of viewing the wlmp file without WLMM .. or WMM 2012
You'll also need the Video files the Video was made with - as they are not included in the wlmp project file.

The video should have been saved as a wmv file.

YES .. Play in about any viewer ... and edit in WLMM or WMM 2012.
You can save the WMM project file, But it needs to know where the original wmv video files are located.

I put in same folder .. If folder moved, you'll have the option to tell it where to re-find the location.
assuming you know where they are .. or went to

Probably ... If re-editing I move them back to my desktop.
It's sorta easy to "re-find" them for the moved project file.
You're OK as long as you don't loose them and know where they are :D

A free, very good, very versatile video (and then some) player is KMPlayer. It has embedded codecs, so many that there are probably few filetypes it can't play. You might want to check it out.

Don't know .. And it probably won't work anyway.
Should be the same computer ... The project wlmp file does NOT contain the original movie files .. It only links to them.
So, They must also be in the computer or saved somewhere .. and the wlmp project must know where they are.

If not the same version of Movie Maker .. You'd probably need the original move files .. And remake the video.

it was successful .. I'm now making movies in WLMM that I shot last night .. will be on Youtube in a few hours
