The reader Achille Santon, member of the Spider-Mac Apple User Group (community consumers’ online Mac officially recognized by Apple) doesn’t succeed in installing QuickTime 7 on the new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and he/she asks.

When I have installed Lion on my iMac I have followed proceeds her/it illustrated in the article As to install Lion on Leopard or to do one “clean installation.” Later, in to try the new QuickTime X, in the hope that would have allowed me to modify the tapes as I had gotten used to do with QuickTime 7 For, I have realized that it is not possible and so I have unloaded the last version of QuickTime 7 of Apple. When I try to install him/it, however, it appears me the notice that a version of QuickTime is already installed and doesn’t allow me to continue. How can I be to again QuickTime 7?

The problem is that you have effected the download of the wrong version of QuickTime 7. It is necessary QuickTime Player 7.6.6 for Mac OS X v10.6.3 (the projected version for Snow Leopard). That that you have unloaded is surely QuickTime 7.6.9. Even if the number of version is taller, he treats in reality of the release for Leopard.

When QuickTime is installed for Snow Leopard (7.6.6) the application is automatically inserted in the briefcase Utility. Since the installer doesn’t see another copy of QuickTime in that position, it is simple progress with the installation. The version of Leopard (7.6.9) it tries to install QuickTime 7 in the briefcase Applications and since it finds a copy of QuickTime Player, he stops.

Once installed QuickTime 7.6.6, are necessary to insert the code of recording that you have paid many years ago 30 European in QuickTime / Recording.

If he doesn’t succeed in finding the code of recording, it is possible to recover making him/it the login of the account Apple Store and cliccando on the link “software Purchases through download.” QuickTime together with his/her code of recording should be in this section. Who desires him/it, you/he/she can purchase a license on the Apple Store.
