Quicktime check on PC

List,

I suppose that Quicktime is installed on every Mac, so no need to check, but
is there a way to check whether it's installed on a PC?

Thx,

Philip

This is one of those things that is easier in a plugin. I use a function
from the MBS plugin

Hi Philip

It's dangerous to assume anything. I'd recommend checking that
QuickTime is installed on any platform before you use it.

On the Mac you can call System.Gestalt with the "qtim" selector to
get the exact version number of QuickTime that's installed.

Or you can use the follwoing code to check if QuickTime is installed
on any platform (but it doesn't tell you the version)

Dim QTE as QTEffect
QTE = GetQTCrossFadeEffect
if QTE <> nil then
//QuickTime is installed
end if

Hope this helps,
Joe Huber
