Have a cmdline install from an older version, QuickTimeInstaller.exe /qn ISSETUPDRIVEN=0 ALLUSERS=1 DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 QTTaskRunFlags=0 QTINFO.BISQTPRO=1 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0 REBOOT_REQUIRED=No .

Didn't know if it works with this version, or, needs some more work?

Thanks.

Doing a trial update using the downloaded exe, I noticed this QuickTime 7.5.5 update also installs the Apple Software Update program. Any ideas on how to deploy the QuickTime 7.5.5 update without the Apple Software Update?

I opened Incident 105914427 with Apple. You may want to call their support (may have to go to Corporate Support, since you need to do a WIDE deployment, not individual users doing their own installs (they seem to have a problem understanding the word "deployment")) and mention.

If enough of us call, maybe they'll take action to give us the tools and knowledge...seems to have partially worked with Adobe...

Without going into everything thats already said in the package KB, the exe installer has 3 MSI's inside, one is ApplesoftwareUpdate.msi. You only need quicktime.msi, and a few tweaks to remove the updates and tray options.

I wish you would go into a little detail. I have tried the method I used for an early version and things seem entirely different. first the QuickTime.qtp file is stored in the User profile, and it seems that when a new user logs on they are doing something tricky and overwritting the settings you make in the file and the new user has to reset. In our locked down, Corp. environment that just doesn't cut it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

It is different, but the same.
Everything you need is in this - http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=520


Strangely enough, Ive been tasked with removing quicktime from all machines on our network, thousands of machines :/
Due to the latest vulnerability. And just as I finished packaging the newest version for another client.

This is just strange and I think I'm loosing my mind. Ok I have a MSI and created a transform that does seem to get rid of the toolbar service. Before I was able to turn off the update, and now not start the "Content Guide" by just distributing a QuickTime.qtp file. Now that file is in the user profile. Here is the problem, when I install the MSI - MST the user who installed will have the settings set. The next user to log on, it is starting the process all over again. This seems to be the case even if I copy the "good" qtp file into the users profile.

It seems to be that QuickTime looks for something in that qtp file figures out it is a new user and starts the settings process all over again. This of course will not work for us we have quite a few machines spread around the office for user to use while visiting the main office. I want to make sure everyone knows this is with 7.55.90.70.

If it's any consolation I am also having problems with replacing the QTP file. Copied it from one PC to another and the second didn't take the first's settings. My focus for this is the MIME and File Type associations. Looking for a workaround...

Hi folks,
as far as i can tell, there is no real change in the behaviour of the new version.
About the QTP file:
Read this: http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboards/fb.asp?m=34852
And search the forum, there is all the info you need to do it.

Nick:
You could be right that this latest version does work the same, but seemed like even after ripping out the QuickTimePostInstallMSIProc_defered(we only need QuickTime for MOV files) and then doing several tests some process was still overwriting that file. I used your idea about making the *.qtp file read only and did some test by hand copying files etc. and found that the file (userprofile)\Application Data\Apple Computer\Quicktime\QTPlayerSession.xml is responsible. There are a couple of obscure entries in there that have 0 or 1 for the value. Anyway when I made an ActiveSetup install that puts those two files in place for each user QuickTime seems to work the way I want it to work.
