Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2007 10:21 AM (in response to Kristy Carlson)The only way I have heard of to have two different fully functional versions of QT on the same computer. Is to have two operating system's on the computer, which I think is called dual boot. Which probably requires two hard drives or maybe a partitioned hard drive, because QT needs to install to a (C:) drive. Kirkster, I recall had once written about getting two QT players, from two different versions of QT, on the same operating system. But it was awhile ago, I don't know how it is done, or if he was referring to Mac's or Windows or both. If he doesn't come across this post, you may want to post to QuickTimeKirk to see if he can come up with anything.Windows XP Pro

My machines run version 7 but I have multiple versions of the QuickTime Player app and each has different features. But the both only use one set of components and frameworks and that is version 7.
Each runs "on top" of version 7 and the "About QuickTime" menu shows QuickTime Version 7.1.5, Player 6.5.2 when I use version 6.
What you want to do can't be done without more than one OS (partitioned or separate hard drives).Mac mini, iMac G3 400, and Sony laptop using XP, Mac OS X (10.4.9), 10.3.9 OS 9.2
