    Hi,

    I used to run winXP home, but had so many problems that I reverted back to win2000 pro. One thing I do miss is the movie maker that came with XP.

    Now, I have been asking around if its possible to download and install movie maker to win2000 pro, and everyone said it was not possible. I searched around the net for a bit and came apon this answer in a forum.

    "Autopatcher 2k has it, along with almost every update imaginable. I'm running Win2k SP4 and I most certainly am running Windows Movie maker...just Google Autopatcher 2000 and get the August 2006 Full edition. However, the verison is 1.2.3 and does not support many formats (no FLV, MKV or OGM love)...
    Just fire up autopatcher, deselect everything except "windows Movie maker" under "Windows Addons". "


    Now, I have downloaded the autopacher 2000, but have not opened the file yet, becuase I wanted to double check with you guys and gals to see if this sounded legit. I really dont want to mess up my system, becuase its running real strong with no problems. The only thing I want out of the patcher is the movie maker.

    Please let me know if you have heard of this autopatcher 2000 before, and if this sollution sounds viable to what I'm trying to do.

    Thank you,
    Wasper
