    Windows Live Essentials 2012 was discontinued by Microsoft on January 11 2017, however I have mirrored the final version of the offline installer for you to download.

    Windows Live Essentials is still useful today, even on Windows 10. No good free video editing software for Windows 10 exists, however Windows Movie Maker included with Windows Live Essentials still does the job really well for basic editing. Likewise the Windows Live Photo gallery application is still a lot more useful than the built in Windows 10 Photo Viewer.

    This Windows Live Essentials 2012 Offline Installer includes the following applications:
    • Windows Live Photo Gallery and Movie Maker - Still very useful on Windows 10
    • Windows Live Writer
    • Windows Live Mail
    • Windows Live Messenger (MSN Messenger) - MSN is no longer usable, however "Superseded" by Skype. Although to be honest the MSN client is still a lot better than Skype today in my opinion.

    Made an account especially to thank you for this. I have my Photo Gallery back... ^^

    Install worked like a charm. Literally takes seconds.

    I'll make a few backups of it for future installs. Again, big thanks.

    Try installing the .NET Framework 4 first, then installing Windows Live Essentials.

    Thanks a lot for this! Other sites I tried threw up warnings from my anti-virus program. Downloading it now.
    I've been searching and trying alternatives to Photogallery since it was end-of-lifecycled, but I can't find anything that both makes the edits I need (including simple tags/comments) fast, and is also simple enough to explain to my wife. So... until something as easy and functional comes out, we're sticking with Photogallery (and Movie Maker). The Photo app in Windows 10 is only a replacement for Photo Viewer, with a worse importer.

    So... it seems you need to download the same language installer as your Windows language (it doesn't matter what you have the Language Settings set to). There's a list of expired links for all languages of the installer at:
    https://www.itechtics.com/windows-essentials-2012-download-links/
    Cope and paste the link for the one you want into the search box at:
    http://archive.org/web/
    Click on a date before the links were removed by MS, and the download should start. I'd grab what you need now, though, since it isn't clear how long the Way Back Machine keeps those. I'm saving backups on various machines around the house plus in my OneDrive account.

    Thanks,
    I recently reinstalled my system and now I need Movie Maker to edit a short, but had a surprise, it's no longer available. I had an installer saved on my external hard drive, but I had the unpleasant surprise to discover that it was an online installer.

    Thank you again for the link.

    That's exactly why i saved the offline installer, Movie Maker is still great for very quick edits.

    Firstly, my little saga in case it helps anyone who follows.

    Error code 0x800c0006, Source WLXSuiteLang (on Windows 10)
    Installed using link in initial post. At end of installation got 'failed' message with above info'.
    Tried again, same result.
    Followed Funky B's posted links above, tried using 3x different dated links on the archive.org site.... each time same error message.
    Did search on 'WLXSuiteLang' and came across a forum with a few folk discussing same problem. A number of posts down the thread somebody posted that though they got this error message they found to their joy when clicking on Windows Start, there was the MovieMaker icon and it had indeed installed.
    So I looked myself and...bugger me....BINGO!
    I don't know if it had been there since my first attempt using InsaneNutter's link or from one of my attempts from archive.org site, but the moral of this tale is if you see above error code assume it's lying and check Windows menu first before pulling one's hair out.


    Now my applause...

    Two negatives make a positive.
    Insane + Nutter = "Stout hearted fellow, splendid chap"

    My thanks for posting your mirrored image. Wanted MovieMaker back and a two hour search (of generally a load of bo**ocks) finally brought me here. I've got a paid for 'all singing and dancing' program but, as is often the case with such things, sometimes it's just too 'clever' for it's own good. MovieMaker lacks much, but for a bit of quick, simple highlights editing of a video you can't beat it.
    Glad to have it back. Cheers Nutter.
