Hello,

I am having an issue with VMWare View 4.6 and Windows 7 virtual desktops.  I need to have Windows Live MovieMaker installed and running.   However, so far, this doesn't work.  It appears to be due to the video driver, and needing 3D capabilities, however, I'm not 100% sure.  Has anyone else run into this and is there a way around it?  How can I get Windows Live moviemaker to run on a Windows 7 virtual desktop?

Thanks

Direct X is not an option for VMWare View. It is not currently supported by VMWare.

Yeah there is no way to run programs like this in VMWare I am pretty sure.  Your best bet is to find something that is online only to edit it.  I know YouTube has a few video editing options now.

Here I found a list of good ones!

Thanks all.

actually, we are going to use an older version of movie maker and use thinapp to snapshot it.  So far, so good.  Alternately, we have a different program everyone is willing to try.
