Quicktime fixed

slated in as so at 5:21 pm

Yay!!! Got Quicktime working on my comp again… been completely without it for over a month now.. amazing the stuff you miss out on when you can’t watch simple quicktime videos.. so many trailers...

I must see XMen 3 :(
Namesake trailer looks fairly true to book.
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 looks fun-packed.
Spiderman 3 is an obvious won’t-miss.
The Last Kiss trailer is a worthwhile one to watch too, though hadn’t needed quicktime for that on Braff’s site.

Anyway, the issue with my Quicktime involved problems with the uninstallation and installation or something or other… Had tried several things, but this is what worked:

One of the errors I was consistently getting (there was at least one other but don’t remember it now) was:
"Error 1316.A network error occurred......"

The solution was not easy to find when I was looking the first few times, but this time easy enough: Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

Downloaded, installed, found in Start > Programs, and hard-uninstalled quicktime.. From there, installed from scratch, and everything is now peachy.

Seems like this could’ve been easily solved ages ago right? But the error messages were different and the CleanUp Utility had not come up on searches. So… I’m just pleased to have it solved now. The end.
