> If I uninstall and reinstall Premiere Pro will it install QuickTime automatically or should I install QuickTime manually? If the latter is true which version of QuickTime should I install?
Premiere Pro doesn't install QuickTime. You install QuickTime. I'm using 7.6.9 with no problems.
I just noticed by pure chance that the QuickTime that I installed went to my Program Files(x86) which is for 32-bit programs.
Do you know if I can install another QuickTime for the 64-bit programs which is what Premiere Pro CS5 uses meaning that I will end up with two QuickTime programs?
And finally, do you think that once I install QuickTime for 64-bit Premiere Pro will show it as a Format option?
There is no 64-bit QuickTime. We had to create a helper utility to communicate between our software and 32-bit QuickTime. Just install QuickTime normally, and it should work.
created a restore point so I used it
Why? A simple Uninstall would likely have worked fine. Restore Points should only be used in emergencies, where the Operating System itself is giving you trouble and no longer working properly.
All is well now.
I checked about the QuickTime folder in Program Files (x86) and found that sometimes even though a program has been uninstalled and is not listed in the Control Panel, there could be leftover folders in the C: drive. In that case one should go ahead and deleted. I did that and then installed QuickTime 7. Premiere Pro recognized it and is now listed under the Export > Format options.
Thank for your support.
