Hi everybody:)

I'm having problems running a program that I need for one of my courses. The program worked fine until today. The program doesn't need to be installed, you just open it from the cd and then pick which video you want to view. The program seems to open fine, but when you select a video, the video screen just shows a big red x. The only advice the readme file for the program has is to make sure Quicktime is version 3 or better. I tried to open the Quicktime player to see if it was working alright and got this message:


Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Buffer overrun detected!

Program C:\PROGRAM FILES\INTERNET EXPLORER\IEXPLORE.EXE

A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the programs internal state.
The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated."


I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out, I really need to be able to access this program, it's required for my class :tazz:

Thanks,
Erin

I fixed it :tazz:

I had a similar problem with itunes not working a couple weeks ago...i had to delete all traces of quicktime, then download a standalone version of quicktime instead of the quicktime/itunes package available on the quicktime website. I followed the same process this time and got it working again. Any ideas on why Quicktime is being so ornery?

I have a fairly low opinion of quicktime, so I am not the one to ask....

That aside, when was the last time you ran a disk scan?

Double click MY COMPUTER, chose LOCAL DISK DRIVE, right click choose TOOS and run a disk scan, checking both boxes

Uninstalling and Reinstalling Quicktime is the best way to go.

When I had Quicktime 7, I had problems with "Error 46".
