Hi,
I am doing a silent installation for Quick Time 7.6.2. Things are working fine for XP ( both for Admin and User) , however for Vista it is not working for for any subsequent user who logs on to machine after installation.I have made the following modifcations in the package.
1. created a mst for silent deployment. Removed all shortcuts. Tray icons etc.
2. Selected appropriate options in QTP , XML and via Active setup, I am getting QuickTime.qtp, QTPLayer.xml to required folders( different for XP and Vista)
Now when I tested the package on XP machine, its working fine for both Admin and any user who logs onto the machine. ( for both Quick time player and PictureViewer)
But for VISTA, the Quick Time plyaer is working fine, but the PictureViwer is not. When I launch the PictureViewer, it asks to 'Modify file associatio- with options for YES and NO' . If I select YES with 'do not ask again option', it works but the thing is it does this for every user who logs in to the machine. I also tried to cretae to login as a new admin user to see if works , but it gives the same prompt. I check that the QTP and XML files are copied to correct location, and its working for Quick Time player. But it seems that the picture viewer is not reading those options.
And just to remind, its working for XP. This issue I am facing only for VISTA.

Please advice..!!

I imagine that either Vista is storing the file associations in some different way or is storing additional information.

Of course, you've already snapshotted what occurs under Vista when you elect to modify the association, right?

I used regmon and filemon to check where does Vista places the files, and all the changes were pointing to either QTP. XML or plist files. Also the preference files I am using are different for XP and Vista. Wat I did was, I installed quick time manually on boh XP and Vista, chose the preferences and then copied the files to add to my package.
As you suggested, I will now try to use wise to check the chanages and post it.
If anyone has packaged this apps, please let me know if they faced this issue. Thanks.

Hi,
I found a registry entry which helped to resolve this issue. Picture viewer was making a registy change in current user hive,
Current uSer->software->AppleCOmputers-> Quick Time. Incorcorated it in the package nd it worked.
