Unfortunately WMP has limited export options (thank microsoft for that) so unless there's a feature I dont know about, you're stuck.

can i open the .wmv file from adobe premier ? actually my source of video file is capture from digital video camera, i captured it into windows movie maker, thats why it saved in .wmv format. my brand of video camera is canon, the software cannon provided is too lousy. can i capture the video from digital video camera into any others software ? like adobe premier ?

Yes, you can capture the output of almost all video cams into Premiere. Premiere specifically has functions for Canon video cams.
