Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

Open Question

Running Mac OS 10.5.6 on a MacBook Pro. Recently tried to make a short video using Quicktime Pro version 7.6.0 and the video window opened alright, but when I tried to start by clicking on the button, I got an instant message that the video didn't start. Repeated several times with same result. I did use the program a couple weeks ago and everything worked fine. I don't know what things to check and don't want to just reinstall without determining the problem. Any ideas? Bert

The application will not open in windows 10. Uninstalled it, removed folders& regkey entries.Installed clean version. Installation went fine. However the application it self will not open.


According to the software release notices, it wasn't until version 7.0d that they made it Windows 7 compatible. You aren't saying what OS you are migrating from, but it may be that you are running too old a version of the program. You could try one of two other options.
  1. Try running the program as an administrator. Right click on the program icon and select "run as administrator".
  2. Try running in compatibility mode for the OS you were using it with previously, right click on the program icon and select the "properties item". Then click on the compatibility tab and use the pulldown to select the OS to simulate the program for.
If they both fail to work, you may have to upgrade to a newer version. Many older applications stopped playing nice starting with Windows 8. Many of them actually worked if you loaded VISTA drivers and/or compatibility, but not all. Most Windows 7 and later software has no issues with Win10.

I purchased WebPlus X2 last year. I recently purchased a MacBook Pro. I need this software for a Mac. Can you help?


Serif's website says that the system requirements for WebPlus X4 (apparently X3 is no longer current) are:
  • Pentium PC with DVD/CD drive and mouse
  • Microsoft Windows® XP (32 bit), Windows®Vista (32 or 64bit), or Windows® 7 operating system
So the first thing to note is that there is no Macintosh version of the software.
That having been said, given that you own a MacBook Pro, you can install Windows on it, and run the software that way.For example, the product at
ComboDealDetails.aspx
includes a discounted copy of both Windows 7 and Parallels, which will allow you to run Windows 7 right alongside your Mac OS. The solution will cost you $140, but it is a very workable, very nice solution when you are forced to use PC software for a course, etc., but own a Mac.

Macbook not recognising new Quicktime 7.3 or 7.6


Did you download the right version of it? You may have accidentally downloaded a version Windows, rather than Mac.

Go back and download it again, and make sure that you are downloading a version for mac.

Playing Flash movies pauses for 1/2 sec every 5-7 seconds


Try this technique: download one of the many free programs from the web that allows you to download the FLV videos onto your computer. Play the video that way. Look for a version that works for your MacBook. Post back your results.

Ne macbook pro locks up


Hey amandarx8,

That really is not quite enough information to go on. What version of the Mac OS are you using? What MS Office application are you trying to use? Are you running any other applications at the same time you are running the MS Office application? This info will help diagnose your problem.

But to answer your question, lock ups are NOT normal. Make sure you have downloaded and installed any updates from both Microsoft as well as Apple.
