Hi Guys,

I am new to packaging and have been thrown into the deep end of it all.
I've been trying to follow the instructions on how to package quicktime on the other part of the site here.
But have found that there are differences between the current 7.1.3.100 and the version the faq was written upon.

I am finding problems with trying to get rid of the quicktime system tray
and also trying to get rid of the "go pro now" option that now appears straight after a install as opposed to
when you open up quicktime.

Has anyone succesfully gotten rid of those two things?
If anyone has I'd really appreciate any help.

Thanks all

Berry

Hi Berry,
you are right, Apple changed the setup layout totally with version 7.1.3.
to get rid of the system tray entry, you can follow the instructions here: http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=520
The info with the 'QTTaskRunFlags' Reg-entry is still adequate.
To get rid of the 'Pro Dialog', set the property 'QTINFO.BISQTPRO' to 1 on the commandline or in a transform.
Hope this helps,
Regards, Nick

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the help. I'm a Mac user who has been dumped in the deep end of packaging and I kind have no idea about.
The entry to get rid of the "ProDiag" worked! Awesome. But I'm still have problems with the adding of the
'QTTaskRunFlags' Entry.

I've followed the instructions to add a "New String" to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Apple Computer, Inc. > QuickTime > ActiveX

Name
QTTaskRunFlags

Data
dword:00000002

Component
QTPlugin.ocx

I'd attach a screenshot of it here but am not allowed to.

Hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks again for your help Nick

Cheers,

Berry

Hi Berry,
you need the ORCA MSI-Editor from the Installer SDK to perform the following tasks.
(You can get it from here: http://astebner.sts.winisp.net/Tools/Orca.zip)

Load QickTime.msi
Go to 'Transform : 'New Transform', this opens an empty transform.

Add the following row to the 'Registry table':
RegHKLM1 2 SOFTWARE\Apple Computer, Inc.\QuickTime\ActiveX QTTaskRunFlags #2 QuickTime.qts

If you want to integrate the 'Pro-Dialog-Switch-off' also go to the 'Property table' and add the following row:
QTINFO.BISQTPRO 1

Go to 'Transform : 'Generate Transform...', name and save it.

That's it!

Now you can start it from the command line like this:

msiexec /i quicktime.msi TRANSFORMS=<your transform>

Hi Nick,
I Tried the advise you wrote here for Barry but it does not seem to work for me first the ProDiag" still occurs and as regards to Add the following row to the 'Registry table':
RegHKLM1 2 SOFTWARE\Apple Computer, Inc.\QuickTime\ActiveX QTTaskRunFlags #2 QuickTime.qts

I added it plugin.ocx component but I got permission issue during install which says Could not write value QTTaskRunFlags to keySOFTWARE\Apple Computer, Inc.\QuickTime\ActiveX verify you have sufficient access to that key.

Please advise what I am doing wrong

Hi Francis,
are you using ORCA to create the transform?
If not, please do so.
You don't need to set components and other stuff!

Just add the following row to the 'Registry table':
RegHKLM1 2 SOFTWARE\Apple Computer, Inc.\QuickTime\ActiveX QTTaskRunFlags #2 QuickTime.qts

Be aware to put the stuff into the right column. This are the column breaks:
RegHKLM1
2
SOFTWARE\Apple Computer, Inc.\QuickTime\ActiveX
QTTaskRunFlags
#2
QuickTime.qts
