Windows Live Movie Maker won’t open; error like “Faulting module name: aticfx32.dll”

I was having problems with Windows Live Movie Maker not opening lately. No error, just nothing happening when I would run it. I tried repairing and uninstalling/reinstalling but nothing helped.

After looking in the event log, I saw the above DLL in the error which made me think ‘Video Card’. So, first thing I tried to do was disable Crossfire and try and run off of one video card.

Worked like a charm!

Apparently, Windows Live Movie Maker isn’t compatible with Crossfire, and I’d hazard a guess it may have issues with SLI, too. If you’re having this problem and running two cards, knock one off and see if it helps.
