Having problems with Windows DVD Maker

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

This morning, when suddenly Windows DVD Maker has stopped working on my computer. Each time I try to burn a DVD, I immediately get an error that reads:

"Runtime Error! Program: C:Program FilesMovie MakerDVD Maker.exe abnormal program termination"

Then the application closes. I would very much appreciate any suggestions on what to do to resolve this error.

Note: I run Windows Vista and have noticed the error with both a blank DVD+RW disk and a DVD+RW disk with a movie on it that I burned yesterday using this same program.

Thanks for any help.

First scan for any viruses Avast, AVG mine is avira that may blocking your DVD maker from running, try also deleting all temp files; click startup then run command; type in %temp% and browse erase all file with (.tmp) or you can erase it all temp files stored on that folder.

If it doesn't work your Windows DVD maker may be corrupted or some of its file were deleted that’s why you can’t use it , suggest  uninstalled it from your control panel, and install it by going to Microsoft website then go to live essential as good as new.

I can help you fix the Runtime Error with DVD maker on your computer. I suggest you to follow these steps:

  • Close your Antivirus program from the system tray.
  • Run the Disk Defragmenter. To access the application, just type “Disk Defragmenter” in Start menu.
