i'm realtivly new to macs and i cant figure out how to uninstall an application. what do i do?
Drag the program to the trash
is that all i have to do? I wanted to uninstall quicktime so that i could install and older version. i draged quicktime to the trash and emptied it but it still wont let me instaall the old quicktime because it says the newer version is still installed
You will also have to delete the preferences for quicktime.
Do a "Find" for quicktime and delete whatever you find. Then install the older version.
ok, i did all that...but it still says theres a newer version of quicktime installed...wtf?
Why do you want an older version? The new version can do all of the stuff the old one can and more.
because the older version that i am trying to install is Quicktime Pro where as the newer version is just the basic QT
its not going to work....quick time is an integral part of the os.
Quicktime is not an application, you can't just drag it to the trash like I suggested up above.
If you have a key for Quicktime Pro, enter it in the Quicktime system preference. If you are trying to install a pirated version of Quicktime Pro, spend the $29 for a legit key.
damn i guess im screwed then....since i cant use quicktime basic anymore since I delted it.....and i was trying to install a pirated version of pro....sadly i dont have the $30 to spare right now for a legit copy
What do you need the Pro version for?
i have a bunch of video i captured from my camera....but each file is more than 2 gigs and iMovie wont handle it so I need quicktime pro to split the movie files into smaller sizes
here's nothing pirated about any version of quicktime. Its an on/off switch used by the serial number.
You just pwnd yourself.
i guess?....i got through part of the install and the whole time it said 'Quicktime Pro' at the top...so??
