I recently purchased an iMac 27" with an I7 processor and 8 gbs of RAM. The Apple Store did a data transfer from my old iMac. The data transfer did not bring my Quicktime 7 Pro over the new iMac. It isn't in the Utilities folder.

Snow Leopard will not let me re-install it. Is there a way to install it on my new mac?

    Install QuickTime Player version 7.6.3 from the Snow Leopard DVD.

    Expanding on what Kirk said, it's part of the Optional Installs on your SL disk. If you don't have your Snow Leopard install disk handy, you can download QuickTime Player 7 for Snow Leopard here:

    Then once installed, launch QT Player 7 and to to the Registration command under the File menu.

    I do not have the SL disc...

    Is it possible to obtain QK7 while QTX is present without the disc?

    I downloaded Q7 from the link above, but it doesn't seem to work. I just receive an error message.

    Here is my sitaution: I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 on a Macbook. I wanted to install Q7 Pro, so I decided to delete QX so that I didn't receive the error message when trying to install it. Now I know that is a huge mistake and wish to retrieve QX and obtain Q7 Pro without the SL DVD.

    Is there anyway to do this without using the SL DVD?

    There is no way to retrieve QuickTime Player X without having the Snow Leopard disk, no. But you shouldn't need QuickTime Player X to install and use QuickTime Player 7. Did you delete more than just the QuickTime Player application from the Applications folder?

    I downloaded Q7 from the link above, but it doesn't seem to work. I just receive an error message.

    What is the error message?

    Yes, I tried to delete all files associated with QX so that I could cleanly install Q7Pro.

    The error message is too long to decipher. Which part of an unexpected error message would be helpful to you?

    Then you trashed the core files that comprise QuickTime and you'll need to reinstall Snow Leopard. There's no download available from which you can recover from this mistake, so you'll need your SL install disk.

    I feared as much!

    ****, I suppose it's pretty easy to buy a new disc from an Apple store?
