    Squeeze/Quicktime Question

    I want to move my legally purchased copy of Squeeze 11 Pro from my old Win 7 computer to my new Win 10 machine before the September deadline.   I ran the installer which says to first install Quicktime and it sends me to an Apple link to install QT 7.7.9 for Windows.  

    Two Questions:

    With all I've been reading about QT's vulnerability, is this safe to install on my new Windows machine?

    Will Squeeze run without QT?

    Re: Squeeze/Quicktime Question

    Squeeze needs Quicktime to work. As far as I know even MC still requires QT to fully function. Best advice is to read the Avid KB regarding installing and setting up QT on a system. If it's installed as recommended in the KB then everything should be OK.

    I haven't had any issues so far on my system. There have been reports of issues with the QT installer on Win 10, but I didn't encounter any, a Web search may help on the subject.
