I get an error message saying that the quicktime installer will only work on 32 bit... Is there a way to get the install to work on 64 bit windows?

    This is likely due to the fact 64-bit systems require a whole additional layer of coding because it is more advanced and processes differently. Though I do not have a 64 bit system myself. The principle is relatively sound. Until a version specifically for 64-bit systems is released, all 64-bit systems will remain deprived of Quicktime player and other Apple software.

    I haven't found a separate 64-bit installer for QuickTime by itself, but you can get the 64-bit installer for iTunes which will also install QuickTime:

    The QuickTime player works on 64-bit systems. (It's a 32-bit application, but it should run fine using the standard 32-bit-on-64-bit Windows-on-Windows emulation.)

    What's the precise text of your installation error message, dc? (There one or two different ones I can think of that might mention 32-bit)
