Try specifying a full path to the file...

<Param name="Background" value="C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\background.jpg"/>

I've tried numerous things and I'm missing something. A different image (.png) worked fine, but I can't make this one work even when I make it into a .png, resize it, etc. I suggest you talk to the creator and send a note to Rehan (or maybe he'll see this thread). His support address is on his website (www.rehanfx.org).

The attached code worked for me.

A few hints
1. This is an Effect not a Transition
2. You need Rehan's PIP Plus installed
3. When you download the image from the imageshack link you might have to rename it to match the name you put in the XML
4. PIP+ may not work if you have multiple monitors
5. You could also implement this as a title overlay instead of a PIP+ effect.

Ya, to run any PIP+ effects or transitions, you need either the trial version or purchase the full version.

After the trail period static effects like this should still work ok.
Have you tried any other PIP+ effects?

As I said earlier, I believe that the free version of PIP+ supports static effects such as this so it should work for you.
If other PIP+ static effects work for you then there must be a typo in your XML.
As I said you can also implement this as a title overlay - I've extended this to demonstrate this.

Enigma316 you can overlap title overlays in WMM - just drag them over each other.
You could also combine your logo and the background border outside of WWM using your favourite graphics program.
