Error while exporting to Quicktime in Adobe Premiere Pro CS3

Submitted by: Jesse D.

Have you ever tried to export a movie to quicktime while using Premiere Pro CS3? I have, and I got an error "Error compiling movie. Unable to create or open output file."

Basically the latest version of Quicktime has some issues with it. So I downloaded a previous version of Quicktime, installed it and then tried to export and it worked without a problem.

Heres the version of quicktime I downloaded. This the version for windows.

Wasn't totally expecting this to work as I've had Quicktime reinstallation problems in the past, but uninstalling 7.6 and replacing it with this did allow Premiere CS3 to export QT just like you said. Thank you!
