Try running ScanDisk to verify that the directory is okay.
This is an important step to take before installing any software.
Try running the stand-alone version of the QuickTime installer in "Safe Mode."
This can help to isolate issues with background applications, and some driver conflicts.
Make certain you have installed the most recent drivers for your sound and video cards.
Even if you have a "brand new" computer, it is not guaranteed that it contains the most recent software. Contact the manufacturer of your sound and video cards for additional information.
Make certain you have installed a recent version of DirectX.
This can be obtained from http://www.microsoft.com/directx/.
Verify that a valid Path statement exists which points to the Temp folder.
Without this the installer may not be able to locate the TEMP directory. This statement should be located in the AUTOEXEC.BAT.
Try renaming the Temp directory and creating a new one.
This eliminates files which may have been left over by previous software installations. Alternately, you may wish to delete any files which are left over in the TEMP directory, but be aware that other software may be using the files. So, if you choose to do this, you do so at your own risk.
Errors are usually related to software conflicts, corruption, or incompatibilities. They can also be related to specific hardware combinations, and sometimes the way in which the hardware is configured. Keep in mind that an error message does not necessarily point to a particular cause or solution. Since there can be many different causes for a particular symptom, some suggestions may not work, and you may need to discover a solution on your own. In any case, you can help others by posting how you are able to resolve your issue.
