QuickTime 7.7 is out for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7:

Who wants to tackle the beast? I’ve literally given up trying to do unattended installs of QuickTime. I’ve read all 6000-or-so comments on the boards and the package pages about QT 7.6.x, and none of them work. I’ve wasted too much time for the returns to be worth it.

Hopefully QT 7.7 has some sort of a real packaging system, but I’m not holding my breath.

I would do if the download link didn't keep pointing me to the 7.6.9 download!
Has anyone managed to get the 7.7 installer?

Just about finished getting 7.6.9 ready for AD deployment and they bring out a new version [:@]

It's ok - it doesn't really look any different to 7.69... :)

Even the msifilehash table looks exactly the same.

DotMsi, where did you get the 7.7 installer file from?

I only get the option for 7.6.9 if I go here:

I am new here so let me know if I should post this as a new thread instead.

I am working on packaging QT 7.7 but having problems with the transforms file. My first package installed fine on Windows 7 systems but failed on XP - Transforms error, check path. Since the path is fine, everything in one directory, I installed a newer version of AdminStudio (10.0) as suggested by a collegue.

Using Tuner to make the MST file, we are all getting the same errors. These occur after responding to all the install prompts.

Installation not complete. Failed to create transform.
Then ...
No Msi Database is currently opened.

At this point we are unsure whether the problem is with AdminStudio or the .msi file. There are 3 of us getting frustrated with this [&:]

Any ideas?

QuickTime 7.7 is available from Apple's site now. I used the same method for the previous version of QuickTime.

I downloaded and extracted the .exe file using 7zip, which contains the 4 MSI files:
  • AppleApplicationSupport.msi
  • AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi
  • QuickTime.msi
  • QuickTimeInstallerAdmin.msi
Then I created a batch file:

msiexec /i AppleApplicationSupport.msi /qn /norestart
msiexec /i Quicktime.msi /qn /norestart ALLUSERS=1 DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0

Now that I have KACE, I do it like this in Scripting:
  1. AppleApplicationSupport.msi
  2. QuickTime.msi
  3. QuickTimeInstallerAdmin.exe

Task 1, On Success:
  1. Launch “SYS\msiexec.exe” with params “/i ”$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\AppleApplicationSupport.msi“ /qn”.
  2. Launch “SYS\msiexec.exe” with params “/i ”$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\Quicktime.msi“ /qn /norestart ALLUSERS=1 DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0 SCHEDULE_ASUW=0”
This works in my environment (and at home). Not sure if this is really the "best" way to do it but if it ain't broke don't fix it!

I downloaded and extracted the QuickTime installer again and managed to create a MST with AdminStudio. Back to square one now - package fails with:

Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.

this error only occurs on XP systens - package runs fine on W7

I am using the same install script as for the last version - which worked.

Any ideas are appreciated.
