After having read through the extensive tips and tricks over http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=520 I do understand what has to be done and all ... only problem, I can't get it to work at all (tried most of the tips, with some variations)

Now, I'm quite sure some of you already have done so, and was wondering if anyone of you still has his/her repackaged .msi floating around. I think it'd be great if one of you'd upload it (yousendit, rapidshare, etc) so all of us can be spared the burden of repackaging the .msi (I know, it'd be even more great if Apple were just to release a working .msi but that's a whole other story).

Kind regards,

I have to admit I am in the same boat. Tried all the tips/tricks, and QuickTime 7.6 is still not playing nice.

Added the files quicktime.qtp and QTPlayersession.xml; created registry key paths; using an advertised shortcut to force healing, etc etc. I can get it to install without much of a complaint, but it's not self healing and does not place the files properly.

We have a 7.5.5 package that works fine, although its a bit dirty since I did not create it myself(person edited the msi directly instead of using an .mst), but it works. Same recipe does not work for 7.6, so far at least.

I can't help to think I am missing something small, but then again it could be another custom action throwing a wrench into things...

I can't get my 7.6 working either. Just does not seem to install correctly using the tips that I have seen on here.

I know it works because I have done it, and yes it was very frustrating the first time. Once you get a transform built it makes it a lot easier to modify when the next version comes out. If you follow the steps outlined in this thread you can build a working deployment using Orca. http://itninja.com/question/how-do-you-roll-out-new-machines?7774&mpage=1&key=quicktime

Hi there

This is what we use successfully. Use and adapt as you want...

Obviously you first need to extract all msi's from the Quicktime Package. We use 7-zip to do this.

1. First we check if QT Lite is installed (we actually prefer it) and uninstall it. The only reasons to use the complete Quicktime instead of QT Lite are Quicktime VR and maybe some iTunes incompatibilities???

reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\qt7lite_is1 /v QuietUninstallString && for /f "tokens=2* skip=2" %%U in ('reg query HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\qt7lite_is1 /v QuietUninstallString') do start "Uninstalling QT Lite" /wait %%V

2. you normally won't need this
assoc .mov=

3. First need to install AppleApplicationsSupport.
start /w msiexec /i %~dp0MultiMedia\QuickTime\AppleApplicationSupport.msi /quiet /passive /norestart

4. Then install QuickTime. The UID seems to be necessary (thanks to anonymous, forgot where I got it from)
start /w msiexec /i %~dp0MultiMedia\QuickTime\QuickTime.msi /quiet /passive /norestart ASUWISINSTALLED=0 APPLEAPPLICATIONSUPPORTISINSTALLED={0C34B801-6AEC-4667-B053-03A67E2D0415} DESKTOP_SHORTCUTs=NO QT_TRAY_ICON=NO SCHEDULE_ASUW=NO

5. you normally won't need this
assoc .mov=QuickTime.mov

6. We like to keep autoruns tidy, so delete from Run Key in Registry
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" /v "QuickTime Task" /f

Is it expected that the auotupdate check box will still have a check in it or have I missed somthing

Thanks PCP, you're tips worked great for me. Was trying the MST route with ORCA... it was a real chore and not testing consistently.

BDC1, with the silent install, there was no auto-update check box. Modifications of the QT preferences file has to be done differently as in http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboards/fb.asp?m=49083

PCP, thank you for the instructions. I can confirm that they still work with QuickTime 7.7. [:)]

You can obtain the right GUID by opening AppleApplicationSupport.msi with Orca (View -> Summary Information... -> Package Code). In QuickTime 7.7.0, the GUID is {8A8505BC-E098-431E-A912-4468C95E110F}.
