How to get Expression Encoder to work with the latest Apple QuickTime (7.64.17.0 and greater)


In their recent QuickTime update, Apple added a new DLL dependency to their SDK which unfortunately breaks our QuickTime integration. Until this situation is resolved in a more permanent fashion, here is a workaround to get QuickTime to work again in all versions of Expression Encoder:



  • From the Start menu, right-click on “Computer” and select “Properties”.

  • Select “Advanced system settings”

  • In the “System Properties” dialog, click on “Environment Variables…” in the Advanced tab.

  • In the “System variables” list, find the “Path” variable and double click on it.

  • Add this string at the end of “Variable value” to add the missing directory to your path:


;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\         (For a 64-bit environment)


or


;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\                 (For a 32-bit environment)



  • Click OK to close all the dialogs and restart Windows. QuickTime will be working again in Expression Encoder.

    My Path was already set to the above suggestion and yet I still cannot "see/import" .mov files in Encoder.

    I have Quicktime Pro (7.4.1) installed…is having the QT Pro installed an issue?

    Thanks
