I've run into a QuickTime error when loading AppleWorks 6.2.9 for Windows (Education version).  The message says it needs QuickTime 4.1 to run; though I already have QuickTime 7 installed ( my windows has just been upgraded to Windows 7).  Anyone know if this can be cured?  Any suggestions gratefully received!


Windows 7, AppleWorks 6.2.9 for Windows

    First, the last version of AppleWorks 6 for Windows is 6.2.2. AppleWorks 6.2.9 is the last Mac version.

     

    I thought I had AppleWorks 6.2.2 installed in Windows 7 in Parallels 7 but I don't. I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to do that.

     

    In the meantime, it might be best to start over. Delete QuickTime 7 & AppleWorks 6 & then reinstall from the AW CD including QuickTime 4.1. You can then reinstall QuickTime 7 after AW is up & running.

    Try Peggy's suggestion of starting over. You wantt to uninstall the 2 programs by using the "Programs and Features" applet found in Control Panel.  I have it running on Windows 7 64 bit, and I installed it AFTER I installed the current version of Quicktime 7. I did a clean install of Windows 7 as opposed to an upgrade however.
