I am trying to install QuickTime on a Windows 7 (64 bit) machine with MSIE 8 (I am required to keep IE 8 for corporate software compatibility - I know there are newer versions). I have iTunes installed and the package tried to install the lateste QuickTime but when it was downloading the software, a message popped up indicating the the latest (newest) QuickTime can't finish the install because I already ahve a newer version.
"A newer version of QuickTime is already installed. This installation cannot proceed while the newer version of QuickTIme is installed."
I checked my programs list and have all the Apple software installed but NO QuickTime installed - it doesnt show being installed. I followed a set of instructions the had me uninstall iTunes and the rest of the Apple software in a specific order, rebooted, checked they were in fact gone. Then I tried to install Quicktime only - getting the same message. Also tried to install iTunes again which installed fine until it got to the QuickTime install step where I eventually got the same message about not being able to install QuickTime.
I tried running a .mov at the Apple website while in IE 8 and it popped up a message saying I need to download QuickTime. Yet, when I launch the same link while in Google Chrome, the .mov video runs... Not sure if that is relevant, but it is very puzzling!
I worked with or IT folks and had virtually anythign in the Registry that had anythign to do with QuickTime deleted and still ended up at the same result.
Any ideas about what I can do get past this point & get QuickTime past the newer version hang up? I really need QuickTime to operate.
Any guidance woudl be appreciated!
