    This was my solution. I cloned my WIN 7 laptop hard drive before upgrading to Win 10. I used my clone drive (either one can be used) to upgrade to Win 10.
    Once my Win 10 drive was working, I replaced my Win 10 drive with my Win 7 drive and I had DVDMAKER WORKING JUST FINE. It takes about 2-3 minutes to swap hard drives anytime I need DVDMAKER. Updates are still available for Win 7 anytime I swap drives.
    Another solution would be to clone your Win 10 drive and use either drive to revert to Win 7. Once you swap drives, Win 7 is back and so is DVDMAKER! Sounds like a lot work? Not really when you enjoy using DVDMAKER as well as I did

    Hmm?
    That sounds like a heck of a lot of hard work, merely to use your favourite piece of software?
    Wolfie's link might interest you
    For no reason at all, I have an old Acer, which I use for streaming from the internet (It is linked to my TV) It still has Windows 7 ultimate on it, due to its low resources.
    In the unlikely eventuality that I needed to use an old Windows 7 program, then off I go.

    I am 78. I have worked with computers since 1981 when to first Apple II came out. I was fortunate to work for a county school district which was purchasing computers so I was sent to many schools & seminars to build my knowledge. I consider any project, no matter how big or small, to be a challenge that is worth doing. Replacing an IC would be a challenge. Swapping a hard drive would be considered "FUN". That is why I would try anything pertaining to computers. I enjoy the challenge no matter how small. Just my thoughts.
