While we wait for Microsoft to finish the new version of Windows Movie Maker for Windows 10, some people are left in the cold looking for the old version. Search no more!
This is a simple fix I discovered while working on a larger, more complex problem, when my entire computer was stuck “checking for updates.” Below only applies to fixing the issue with stand alone installers. If you need to fix the entire Windows Update / Microsoft Update feature of your computer, see my other article here.
I recently ran in to an issue I’ve seen at least a dozen times before. This time, however, absolutely nothing I have tried before would fix it.
I will save the exposition for the bottom of the post, the short version: Microsoft’s official fixes wouldn’t even work because the standalone installers had the same problem as Windows Update, and every other guide, manual fix, and 3rd party tool I attempted to use failed!
