Intelligen

Why does quicktime 5.0 say that their software supports windows XP when in fact it doesn't even work on a XP system. I'm reinstalled and tried it then and it still doesn't work. It ****es me off when sites don't have streaming video or trailers in media player format also, instead think that quicktime is the prefered choice of all users. quicktime just period has false requirements for there quicktime 5.0 software!!!!

I have XP and Quicktime and they work fine together. I think that you need to go to the Quicktime website and it will tell you that you need to download a patch for IE. If that doesn't work then I'm not sure what is wrong.

Are you sure. Uninstall it, then do a fresh install. It works on mine:

what we are really saying is don't make allegations about software that is hardly proven.

Quicktime 5.0 / Win XP combination have the words of millions of users vs. you.

Now give us some clearer details if you want us to help troubleshoot, instead of complaining.

What do you get? Error messages? Can't open files? Can't play streaming media in IE? Can't launch program? All the details please.

Looks like a problem with the plug in?

If you wish, you might want to install the Quicktime configuration troubleshooter during installation.

Use Custom Installation, check the box in the last component option.

Also, make sure you are downloading the latest version: 5.05, which includes the activeX object within the installation.
