Same Question here!
if im not wrong some of my adobe products need quicktime installed.
im not making much use of lightrooms very basic video features.. but doesn´t lightroom need quicktime?
i remember when i accidentally blocked, with my firewall, communications to quicktime some apps need a long time to start.
if i remember right it was prermier pro and/or after effects.
and is not "Adobe QT32 server.exe" a software that has something to do with quicktime?
now apple is dropping windows support.
what does that mean for adobe products?
homeland security says anyone should uninstall quicktime:
Same question here!!!!
I suggest following this topic in the official Adobe feedback forum: Quicktime for Windows to be phased out - no longer supported by Apple | Photoshop Family Customer Community. Adobe product developers actively participate in that forum, whereas this forum is mainly user-to-user and low-level tech support.
A google search suggests Apple themselves have not made such an announcement. It may be that third party internet reporters are creating news that does not exist.
Can someone provide a link to a direct Apple announcement suggesting the end of Quicktime for Windows?
The post on this forum are interesting, but there's no answer how about the functionality in Lightroom, Premiere Pro, After Effects etc. when Quicktime is deinstalled.

The issue is brand new (about 12 hours since US-CERT issued the advisory). If you follow the thread in the official Adobe feedback forum, you're more likely to get authoritative, correct information quickly. Adobe product developers actively participate there but rarely hang out here. And the more people who vote and express their detailed opinion in that thread, the more likely that Adobe will respond quickly.
prodad Mercalli 4.0 can import and export prores with no Quicktime installed.
And Adobe ??????
See the topic in the official Adobe feedback forum for statements from Adobe on the issue: Lightroom: Quicktime for Windows to be phased out - no longer supported by Apple | Photoshop Family Customer Community.. Please continue the discussion there rather than spread it out in multiple threads in this forum (which is primarily user-to-user).
Please refer the changes after the update.: Lightroom CC 2015.5.1 now available
Caveat: I am *not* a fan of Apple products or Quicktime; I used to only have QT installed because valuable apps I used REQUIRED it (Lightroom and GoPro Studio come to mind).
I uninstalled QT shortly after I read the suggestions to do so from knowledgeable sources (*not* Fox news, thank you). However, here's what I've done to get around the "Please install Quicktime!" foolishness that Lightroom put in front of my face every time I try to do anything with videos Lightroom.
1. Download the latest Quicktime from the Apple website-- please go to Apple's website manually if you don't trust this link: Download QuickTime 7.7.9 for Windows
2. On installation, select ONLY "Quicktime Essentials" from the components to install. Make sure that all other components have a red "X" next to them (won't install).
3. After installation, I opened a DOS prompt and navigated to the folder %ProgramFiles%\QuickTime\QTSystem
4. Change the extension on the file "QuickTimeUpdateHelper.exe" to ".old"
After this I can still view the MOV files in LR and export to MOV format. To convert the unsupported MOV files into a different format I prefer the application Handbrake (http://www.handbrake.fr), since it can be used with relative ease to convert files into a multitude of different formats. There are a lot of other conversion apps out there; Handbrake just happens to be what I use (and no, I'm not employed or paid by them to say that!).
There are three other ".exe" files in the Windows QuickTime folder. A post on the Adobe Premier Elements forum maintains that the security risk is in the QuickTimePlayer.exe file. It is further suggested that the resources (codecs) remain useful to Lightroom, Premier Elements, Photoshop, etc.
The most recent update to Lightroom includes changes to cause less reliance on QuickTime. I've not found any acknowledgement by Adobe for any effects or changes in Premier Elements.
LR in Windows 10 plays mov files from my Canon camera and exports them as mp4 files (which are smaller) without QT being installed.
