    Quicktime 7 can be installed along with Quicktime X. It will be installed together. Even better, it can be used together. Simultaneously, together, at the same time.

    When I installed Snow Leopard, I got Quicktime X. Checking the version numbers, I then deleted Quicktime 7. However, when I did that, I lost my QT system preference pane. So, Although QT X plays my videos, I have no control over it as it also does not have preferences in the application itself. Because of that, I tried to reinstall QT 7 and was not allowed to since I already had QT X.

    How do i get both?

    Never mind, for those with the same issue, you can install Quicktime 7 from the Snow Leopard disc.

    Hello.
    I am sorry to say that I tried that and it didn't function. Even trying to install Quicktime 7 from the Snow Leopard disk I stay with my Quick time X (no trace of Quick time 7) and the worse is that quicktime doesn't appear in the "System preferences" pannel. (I don't know why) So although I bought a key to install Quick Time Pro I am unable to registered.
    Doesn't anybody have an idea of how to solve the problem?
    Thanks in advance

    How do you do that on a Mac Book running Snow Leopard?
    Impossible to me. Both by download or installation disk.
    How did you do it??

    Sorry for the questions. I hadn't look in the right directory.
    Quick Time 7 install itself in "Utilities" and not directly in applications
    Good day

    I have the exact same problem. I have a MacBookPro 17", Snow Leopard. Just purchased Quicktime Pro, but have no Quicktime Preference Pane to put the registration code in.

    This is driving me crazy!

    Are you saying there is no registration option under the File menu for QT X or for QT 7.6.3 when the application is opened? Only QT 7.6.3 can be Pro registered under Snow Leopard.

    Jon: Correct. There are no "pro" features in Quicktime X. Or rather, all features of Quicktime X are pro. (but also free)
