I use ProRes footage on Windows every day.
The first thing to make sure of is that you have the ProRes codecs installed. The download that you refer to is the newest that I know of:
I don't know why you think there needs to be something newer. If it ain't broke...
One thing to keep in mind is that there isn't a ProRes _encoder_ for Windows, so you will need to render and export to something else when you're done with your edit.
Okay, so since posting this, here is what I found. That codec you linked to, when downloaded to my system, if I try and install it, I get an error saying a newer codec is installed on my system. What codec/ No idea.
Odd, since I cannot open this ProRes file with QuickTime. I just get a black screen. 24 minutes of a black screen. And QuickTime crashes about half a minute after opening it.
I can open the file in CS5. So that is something. But to xcreate a new project I do not see anything for PrRes. This is when you open Production Premium and you get the screeen to create a new project.
What settings should I use? There is nothing for ProRes. It's all just lots of the different digital cameras and such.
Supposedly I have been sent 1080p 24 ProRes.
Now that a lot of cameras and third party capture devices output to ProRes codec, I am needing to better understand how to natively edit the footage in Premeire on Windows systems. For instance, is Quicktime Pro required on the system? How about the prores support file from apple (appears it is not needed anymore according to install error message that msp1518 pointed out.
If I understood correctly, ProRes editing support will be built-in to the next version of PP, due out soon.

You don't need them. Free version of QuickTime installs ProRes decoder into your system.
Keep in mind, there might be a bug with ProRes 4444. Hope, it's fixed in CS Next though.
PP Next. Looking forward to it.
