    Which operating system version? Quicktime is integrated into the operating system with Lion.

     

    What are you actually trying to achieve with all this?

    1) As already indicated by another responder, the QT structure is embedded in the Mac operating system so there is nothing that your can add or install that is separate from or not included in the normal OS updates. You can however, add other applications or Graphic User Interfaces (GUIs) that interact with the OS QT structure. These may include the QT X Player, QT 7 Player, QT 7 "Pro" Player, GarageBand, iTunes, Compressor, iMovie, FCP, FCE, or third-apps like MPEG Streamclip.

     

    2) Since QT X is present, we know you must be using either the Snow Leopard or Lion operating systems which will not allow you to install QT 7 for Leopard software. I.e., QT 7 for Snow Leopard and Lion operating systems require a special version of QT 7 modified to work in the dual 32-/64-bit Snow Leopard/Lion environment. If you are tying to install the QT 7 Player/"Pro" compatible version of QT 7, then READ/FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

     

    3) If your QT structure in the OS is corrupted, then your best solution is to re-install your current operating system and update it as may be needed.

     

    4) As you have not actually indicated what, if any, problem you may currently have, this is about the only help/recommendations we can provide at this time.
