    Windows Movie Maker - can't recognize the file


    hello,
    I made a project in windows movie maker in 2014. (it was in a different old computer, but I transferred it all to the new one).

    Recently I found it and I want to watch my creations there.
    I could'nt open the file since I don't have movie maker, so I tried to convert it in many cites and softwares, and it did'nt work..

    Then I managed installing movie maker with windows essentials 2012, and tried to open the file, and it can't found it. (I tried by "open file" and by dragging it, and it does'nt work).

    The file's type is MSWMM.

    Hope you can help me.

    ThanksWindows Movie Maker - can't recognize the file :)

    :)
