I am having issues figuring out how to get the "Check for updates automatically" unchecked for all during my install. I have use Orca to do a Transform and all works great but it's always checked. I also took the .xml file and tried to copy that during install but still that is checked. HELP!

cygan,

I have reserached tons and have read about the qtp file. The issue is I don't get a qtp file that is created. Current user gets a xml file and also all users gets a plist file. That's the issue. Does 7.6.5 not use qtp?

Quicktime 7.6.5 does use a .QTP file. Post 6 here should point you in the right direction.

My colleague has just completed this package and used Active Setup to place the QTP file in %USERPROFLE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer\ QuickTime.

Hope this helps,

I have no idea why I can't get a qtp file. I have a VM machine, restored that and installed QuickTime. Went in Prefs and unchecked updates, then it created the xml and plist files. How do I get it to create the qtp? I am lost here. Seems so simple.

7.6.5 uses the qtp file
active setup with a vbscript would be the way to solve your problem

Have you checked in the user profile path in my previous post?

I've just brought up a VM and installed QuickTime and after configuring the updates I found the .QTP file in c:\Documents and Settings\<installing user id>\Local Settings (hidden folder)\Application Data (Another hidden folder)\Apple Computer\QuickTime\QuickTime.qtp

Check what you're doing and ensure that you can view hidden folders.

Thanks,

Hi Spineau

Maybe the reason why you can't see the qtp is that you are not installing the original media. try to install the original media which is "QuickTimeInstaller.exe" which is provided by the vendor and not the MSi itself and then look for the qtp file on the path specified above.. hope this helps[:D]

Hi folks,
the QTP-file is not installed with the package!
It's generated, when you start "Quicktime Player" for the first time.
