Although it claimes that QuickTime player is compatible with Windows 10, users still encounter issues during the installation.
"I tried to install QuickTime today on Windows 10, but was soon halted by a stupid check that Apple has built in to the installation file, preventing installation of QuickTime on a newer OS such as Windows 10."
What to do if you can not install QuickTime Player on Windows 10? Don't worry, this article will help you out. The workaround is pretty straightforward, just follow the steps below!
1: Download the latest QuickTimeInstaller.exe from the official QuickTime for Windows 10 page.
2: Open the folder, right-click the QuickTimeInstaller.exe and choose "Extract here". If you can't extract the installation file, you can download and install WinRAR or 7Zip to have a try.
3: Now, you should have a folder that looks something like this, under C:QT or whichever folder you creat.
4: Install the easy prerequisites:
*Double-click the AppleSoftsUpdate.msi file and click "OK", "I accept" etc until the install finishes.
*Do the same with ApplicationSupport.msi.
*Just ignore the file called QuickTimeInstallerAdmin.exe as we won't need it.
5: Right-click the QuickTime.msi file inside the folder you extracted the QuickTimeInstaller.exe file to earlier.
a. Select "Troubleshoot compatibility"
b. Wait for the wizard to scan the QuickTime.msi file for possible culprits (which we already know to be the Windows version check).
c. It should say that it has applied a "Skip Version Check" workaround to enable the QuickTime.msi installer to run.
d. Click "Test the program" and run the installation. Then click "Next" and finish the installation.
e. If it worked without error, you're now done! If not, or if all else fails, continue to refer to point 6 to point 10.
6: Download this TRANSFORM file and extract it to the same folder. We will use this file to temporarily remove the OS checks preventing the installation.
7: Click the Windows icon or Search icon and search CMD. Right-click the Command Prompt shortcut/icon and choose Run as administrator.
8: Type the following command and hit ENTER:
msiexec /i QuickTime.msi /qn TRANSFORMS=FIX.mst ALLUSERS=1 /log C:QTinstall.log
9: Installation shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes.
Tip: A log file called install.log will be created in the C:QT folder, which should end with something along the lines of "Return code 0". If not, and QuickTime wasn't installed, you may look in this file for any possible error codes (opens fine in Notepad or WordPad).
