This archive includes the original disc image and a patch to run the software without the original CD, the Doraemon and Nickelodeon expansions, v3dmm 0.14, and an all-in-one installer for those who prefer to not install everything manually. It also includes many useful third-party tools for working with and modifying the software.
DOWNLOAD (All-in-one installer)
The "Modern Installer" requires .NET Framework 4.5.1 according to https://archive.org/details/ms-3dmm-modern-installer-10. You can download .NET Framework 4.5.1 from here. Make sure that the install directory is set to "Program Files" (NOT x86). This installer installs v3dmm, all expansions, and applies the NoCD patch for you. It just worksTM
DOWNLOAD (disc image .iso)
DOWNLOAD (official expansions)
Mount the 3DMOVIE100.iso using your preferred method and then run SETUP. Install to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Kids\3D Movie Maker" (DO NOT use Program Files x86). Use the NoCD Patch, or copy the contents of the 3DMOVIE folder from the 3DMOVIE100.iso to the install directory, and overwrite all conflicting files. Run the installers for the expansion packs with their default settings. Finally, install v3dmm 0.14. This will allow you to use community made assets for 3D Movie Maker. Open v3dmm after install to run 3D Movie Maker.
DOWNLOAD (3dmm tools)
These tools are from the 3dmm community forum.
