  • Microsoft has ended support of Windows Essentials 2012 since January 2017.
    We won't be able to download the installer software anymore.

    There is a chance you can still be able to use the offline installer to download 2012. Give it a try.
    Windows Essentials 2012 offline installer

    P.S. The correct name is Windows Essentials 2012.
    At one time, it was called Windows LIVE Essentials.
    Microsoft has long since removed the word "live" from the name.

    Use this link :
    http://movies.blainesville.com/search/label/windows10

    The link was talking about Movie Maker etc. It's ok.

    Go to "Here are a few questions and answers:" heading.
    There is a link for Windows Essentials 2012 Offline Installer - English (US)

    Click the link > Download the wlsetup-all.exe to your computer and then run it.

    See if that works for you.

    Neeraj.ha,

    Someone from another forum used the same link to download the Offline Installer and he was successful installing it.

    Give it a try and post back your result.

  • FYI the link to use is the following:

    found it on a different technet post...

  • I had the offline installer and need to install it on a machine where I previously had it installed, but it is now failing with the following error:

    An unknown error occurred

    Error: 0x800c0006

    Source: UXPlatformLang

    I suspect it's trying to connect to MS at the end of the installation and it fails <not amused!>

    Nothing to do with connecting to MS AFAIK, the clue is right there in the error message: "Platform Lang[uage]"

    It's apparently trying to tell you your system language pack no longer matches the language of the installer package. Looks like they may have updated or changed the structure of Windows 10 Display Languages because it doesn't matter if the *name* of your system language is the same as the WLM installation package - it still fails.

    AND BE WARNED: You are likely to get this error if you try to upgrade WLM 2011 to 2012 - after which you can't roll back and 2012 doesn't work. Screwed!

    [Edit]: No, I fixed it. I had English (UK) as the only system language, added English (US) and it still had the problem as above. But I forgot when you add a language you have to log off & log on again to activate it. Did that, with English (US) as the default language, re-ran WLM 2012 installation, and it worked! Hooray!

  • Worked for me.  I was puzzled - installed ok on a Win 10 Pro machine but not Win 10 Home.  US language not installed by default on a UK Home installation it seems.
