In your case, Movie Maker crashed because the MSWMM files created on your previous version of Windows movie maker are not compatible with the Windows that you are using now. In this case maybe you upgraded your Windows operating system from previous version like Windows Vista and you upgraded it to Windows that you are using now.

For you to fix this one, if you have files which are created with the old version, you need to download the older version and install it to your computer. But if you will not mind anything files which is created in older version, just download the latest one. Hope this helped.

A lot of Windows users encounter the error 0x80070057. Some are using Windows 8 and some are using Windows 7. I guess the possible cause would be the format of the video or image you are loading into Microsoft Movie Maker. Many media formats are reportedly compatible with different versions of Microsoft Movie Maker but the most reliable formats you can select are the following:

  • For pictures – either BMP or JPG
  • For videos – WMV
  • For audio – either WMA or WAV

Another possible reason for the error is an outdated video driver. Try updating your graphics adapter’s driver. If you are into NVIDIA, visit NVIDIA Driver Downloads. Set the correct information about your hardware to search for an updated driver. If you are using an ATI graphics adapter, visit Download AMD Radeon Software. If you are using a built-in graphics adapter from Intel, visit Intel Download Center.
