Windows Live Movie Maker can't open; UXCore.dll missing from computer?
I asked this question over in the Live essentials section and there was no response at all. The message states "UXCore.dll missing from computer. Windows Live Movie Maker cannot open." Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit, IE9. I did try to uninstall/reinstall
unsuccessfully. Thank you for considering this question.
To further investigate, I've provided a private message where you can upload log files from your computer. Kindly follow the steps provided in my private message on how to gather the log files and upload it in that area.
Please reply to this post informing us that the needed files was already provided.
I think you misread the thread. The original poster asked a question on June 18th. A moderator replied on June 19th asking for more details be uploaded and to post a reply once that had been done. The original poster never replied (or perhaps handled
it all in the private message thread).
It seems you are receiving an similar error and have tried some of the standard steps like uninstalling and reinstalling. While you have essentially hijacked a different thread rather than starting your own, I'm going to assume a moderator will pick up
your post and respond similarly. So in the meantime, you might want to
begin gathering your log files.
3. Go to C:\Program Files and delete Windows Live folder.
4. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files and delete
Windows Live folder.
Note: If there is more than one Program Files folder upon opening C drive, then double click on
Program Files x86 instead.
5. Disable your 3rd party firewall temporarily. Please enable it after installation.
6. Reset your browser settings. Open your Internet Explorer browser, click on the
Gear icon on the upper right side, and then select Internet Options. Under the Advanced tab, click Reset. Confirm by clicking
7. Reinstall Windows Essentials. Please refer to this article for the download link:
My bad. Didn't see that the original poster didn't reply.
I had already attempted the steps above a couple of times prior to posting. I have determined the file that MovieMaker.exe thinks is missing is in fact there. I have also copied it to the \systems32 directory and the \wow directory as a precaution.
I have uninstalled and then gone back and deleted the Windows Live folders that were left behind (I have no other Windows Live apps installed except MovieMaker).
I even ran RFC to check for corrupted files. None were found.
We received the log files you've provided, we need to verify if you are still receiving this issue. If so, to aid our investigation please provide us a fresh copy of the log files and make sure it is complete.
Note: After providing the logs in the private message, please inform us in the public thread so we can proceed with the investigation.
