    May be your Windows Essentials is corrupted (Download the offline installer again, maybe using a download manager.) or a program file in Windows is corrupted causing the issue.

    If the prog corrupted is in Windows, run System file checker to troubleshoot missing or corrupted Windows file.
    sfc /scannow from command prompt.

    Also uninstall earlier ver of Windows Live Essentials then install this ver.
    Just installed it on Windows 8 , works fine ! Pl try the offline installer if u hv used web installer. Also make sure your .NET 3.5 is upto date.

    In WPG2012, the “Face detection and recognition” option DOES NOT STOP it from “looking for people tag suggestions”……. WTF!!

    For those facing problem with Movie Maker 2012, try the new update, it might solve the prob, if its graphics rel: as it has now added support for DirectX 9 graphics hardware on Windows 7. Get the offline installer and install.
