How to convert videos from MP4 to WMV format?

How can I convert MP4 to WMV format? I have a video in an MP4 format which is 2 GB. It plays perfectly though iTunes and on my phone. However, I want to play around with it in Windows Movie Maker but am failing to convert it to a video format (WMV I suppose) which is compatible. Any professional MP4 to WMV Converter that works? Thanks!
