Quick Time fails to initialize on Windows XP

Asked By 60 points N/A Posted on -


I am a user of Windows XP and have installed Quick Time but I am getting an error message when I try to initialize this program. It gives me some failed error. Have you familiar with this error? Any idea would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Quick Time failed to initialize. Error#0.

Please make sure QuickTime is properly installed on this computer.

Quick Time fails to initialize on Windows XP


Error # 0 is usually the result of an inproper install. This can be caused by several factors, but the solution is simple. 

1. First, download a fresh copy of Quicktime from here .Don't use the standard Quicktime website as that will detect your current installation and refuse to provide a fresh copy. 

2. Now shut down your browser and (if running) any QuickTime processes. 

3. Run the program you just downloaded. Choose Remove when prompted. 

4. Install normally. 

The reason I did not suggest uninstalling from Add/Remove Programs is because you need to have a copy of QuickTime available for the future (as downloaded in Step 1).
