When I try to play a movie trailer from the iTunes Movie Trailer site I get a message telling me to download Quicktime.  I have uninstalled and installed several times with no success.  Someone please help!

Quicktime Pro, Windows 7, 64bit

    Can you check something for me please? I'd like to try doing a "Run as administrator" on your iTunes.


    Quit iTunes first.


    In Computer, open Local Disk C: or whichever drive you have your program files installed on.

    If you have a 32-bit Windows, open the "Program files" folder.

    If you have a 64-bit Windows, open the "Program Files (x86)" folder.

    Open the "iTunes" folder.


    Right-click on the iTunes.exe file and select "run as administrator".


    Try playing the movie trailer in the Store now. Does it play for you without the message?
