    Problem Installing Quicktime 7


    I need to install quicktime 7 for my airsight IP Cameras. Problem I am having is that the installation just keeps on trying to install it. I wait and wait, nothing happens. Then I try to uninstall, can't because it is still installing. I Turn off the computer, then tried to install quicktime 7 again and It says its still trying to install from the previous program. I can't close out the Windows installer box from the desktop... only when I turn the computer off. I do need to install quicktime to use the cameras in live view to see the video. Is there something wrong with Windows installer on my 8.1 or what?

    This is not a problem for this forum section. But, try installing Quicktime as Administrator. Right click on the Quicktime install icon and then left click Run as Administrator. See if that helps.

    BTW, I have iTunes and Quicktime installed and did not have any problems. So its not a Win 8.1 compatibility issue.

    Don't know if it will work in your particular situation but Quicktime Alternative works on my machine.
