have xp sp3 but stuck on Movie maker 2.0, how to get 2.1???


H

huh?

I have xp sp3 installed on my computer. Running movie maker - about- tells me
I have movie maker version 2.0.3312.0.

I want to (need to since 2.0 isn't working well) update to 2.1. Can't get
windows update to recognize I have an older version of Movie Maker.

Its possible that my son installed 2.0 on top of 2.1 since I read sp2 is
supposed to come with 2.1.

Suggestions for how I can get movie maker 2.1 (re-)installed??

Thanks for any help!!!

====================================
Reinstalling SP2 might do it but I think you'll
have to uninstall SP3 first.

Download Windows XP SP2

or...
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...be-3b8e-4f30-8245-9e368d3cdb5a&displaylang=en

Generally, users install from the net but this
site allows you to download the complete
file to your hard drive before installing.

It's good for a network administrator because
you can burn it on a CD and install it on as
many computers as you need to.

And it's good for a single machine because
if you ever need to install it again...you'll have
it available without waiting for a download.

If you have an XP install disk...the following info
might be useful:

The following steps previously offered by
Carlos, MCSE are supposed to reinstall
MM2.1.

(you'll need your Windows XP Disk)

1. Go to C:\Windows\inf
2. Right click on Moviemk.inf and click on Install
3. When it asks for your Windows XP cd put
it in and browse to the I386 folder. Click OK
