QT export does not support Flash version beyond Flash 5 so if you want to export
your movie using Publish Setting - Formats - QT MOV, you need to set export
setting to Flash 5. It's a different thing than doing File - Export Movie.
By using Publish Setting, Flash maintain its interaction (flash 5), like buttons
and basic actions but this option has its limitations. It's basically a flash layer
within QT file and because quick time does not support flash latest features, it won't
allow export in higher version.
By using File - Export - Export Movie CTRL ALT SHIFT S, you export flash file into
actual video file.
Best if you open the help file and search for "Exporting QuickTime", it has detail
explanation in regard to that option, there should also be a link at the end of the read
leading you to "related topic", using the Publish Setting export, which also gives
detail explanation and features.

Thanks for the input, I have used this feature several times and have not encountered this problem. I last night downloaded all the updates for the CS3 suite and tried the export again this morning with the same error. I haven't rebooted though let me try that to see if that makes a difference.
Ok rebooted the system after updates were installed, same error. This internal error in flash does not record in event viewer. But now when you then go to close Flash you do get an error that does show up in viewer. This closing error only happens if you get the error from exporting. As you will see in the error it show the Quicktime module is the module at fault. Any ideas on how to correct the problem.
