  1.  

    Click Start>Control Panel

    Click ‘Control Panel Home’ in the top left

    Click Programs

    Then below ‘Programs and Features’ click on ‘Use an older program with this version of Windows’.

    Follow the instructions in the wizard.

    If that doesn’t work for you, try the instructions on this Windows help page: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Make-older-programs-run-in-this-version-of-Windows

    I tried this and it didn’t work, it would seem that the problem is more with quicktime which it always tries to install (even though we already have it) and runs into a problem and won’t go any further with the installation

    If you’re still having trouble then I’d suggest using Windows XP mode: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx
