    Default Can't install quicktime!


    When I try to install Quicktime, I get this error:

    "The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

    some other times it will tell me the application is not a 32 bit application (my PC is 32 bit) although the file is.

    Are you facing this issue only with QuickTime? If it's only occurring with Quicktime, I would suggest possibly posting on Apple's forums. Good luck!

    try to remove quicktime on Windows 8 and reinstall.

    completely remove it by delete all the temp files in %appdata% and %programdata% in C:/ disk.

    Then reinstall it to Windows 8. and finally start quicktime.

    If any further problems, i'd like to do you a favor.

    Several years ago, I was really getting fed up, having to install another player every few days.
    I had more players than the NFL. rofl

    So my software guru suggested that I download and install the "K-Lite Codecs Pack".
    I did and then I uninstalled Quicktime, Real Player, and a half dozen other so-called players.

    Now with the K-Lite Codecs installed, my Windows Media Player plays Everything. I love it!
    Download K-Lite Codec Pack

    Life is simpler, when you just simplify it!

    A man with experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument.
    Backup! Backup! Backup! Ghost rocks!
