I created a few projects in windows movie maker using the new vista version. After deciding I hate vista I downgraded back to XP. I now want to continue working on those movie projects in XP but I keep getting the error message: The file was created by a version of windows movie maker that is not supported. Is there somthing I can do to fix this problem?

Thanks for your help.

It's because the version of windows movie maker that you used to make these projects is different in XP. Try to download the same version of windows movie maker that you used on vista for xp. And that will fix it. Hopefully. :thumbsup:

But now that I think about it, it might be impossible to fix this problem. Since you used a totally different version of movie maker on vista which is designed and only compatible with vista and a whole different version of movie maker on xp that is designed for xp. Therefore, it would be considered almost impossible to make a movie maker presentation display with a version of windows movie maker that is not even meant to display it. If there would've been a way to convert it to be compatible xp then it would work. But I think there isn't.

First make backup copies for your movie maker project. Then maybe you could try using AVS Video Converter. Convert your project to avi format and try playing it with movie maker. If doesn't work, still convert it to avi format and then convert the new converted project of yours back into windows movie maker format. That migh just work.

Just to confirm what genius12 posted.
MM Vista projects are not compatible with MM XP.
Projects started in XP can be imported into Vista,
but once you do that the project can not go back to MM XP.
