windows movie maker on a mac?

is there any way to run windows movie maker on my mack book pro?

I need to make some video editing tutorials for PC only people and I 'm trying to avoid buying a pc just to do this.

I have no experience of emulators.

Of course i would choose imovie or final cut but in this case I need to capture me editing off screen using windows movie maker.

thanks

I'm 99% sure you can't do that.
What you can do is either use Bootcamp and do a dual boot into Windows or use windows through a virtual machine (running windows inside mac). There are a few really good open-source ones, or you could use parallels or VMWare).
Hope this helps

Booting Windows on the Mac

Windows XP should do it. Is other no other way in doing this with iMovie?

Err...never mind, I didn't read your entire post
