The latest version of QT for Windows has a bug in it that affects my s/w. Is there a way of detecting which version of QT Player the user has installed on their machine short of asking them in a dialog box? If I knew the version was anything but the latest I can set attributes one way. With QT 7.7.2 I need to do something altogether different.

Not sure if the registry entry for quicktime doesn't have a version component to it
I'd try checking HKEY_LOCAL_+MACHINE > Apple Computer, Inc. > QuickTime > WinVersion (or Version)

When i open regedit i cannot find QuickTime in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Apple Computer, Inc.
The only thing there is Bonjour. There are a number of QT items in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but none seem to contain a version number. Will keep poking around. Thanks.
