That sounds to me like a generic error relating to overwriting a locked file. Have you tried changing the export destination? Have you tried exporting a different format, e.g. AVI or H.264? Does AME give you the same error if you try to simply convert an existing media file to MOV?
I've tried changing the export destination, but that doesn't help, and I don't have a problem exporting to other formats.
I've never tried using AME as a convertor. I'm not sure that's the ultimate solution to my problem, but I'm curious enough to give it a try. How would I do that?
Just launch Adobe Media Encoder by itself; there is a shortcut in the Adobe program group. Add a file (anything, at this point) and see if you can export to a QuickTime file. If you can, that would indicate that your QuickTime install is OK, and there is something wonky with Premiere/AE itself.
Considering this was posted back in April I'm sure the problem is solved by now, but for future users...
Sometimes the problem can simply be using a bad character in the title of the file. When you're on the export screen, be sure to name your quicktime file something simple, don't use any articles that are not numbers or letters as this can cause export problems.
