QuickTime: QuickTimeLib Not Available Message (8/96)
Article ID:


When I launch a program on my Power Macintosh, it tells me that
it cannot find QuickTimeLib. I have searched my hard drive but
cannot find it. What is it and how do I get it?


QuickTimeLib is a code fragment that is part of the QuickTime PowerPlug
extension. If QuickTime PowerPlug is disabled, damaged, or deleted you
may get this message. The QuickTime PowerPlug extension can be
reinstalled by performing a custom installation of QuickTime in the
System 7.5 installer. For additional information on Power Macintosh code
fragments, refer to the Tech Info Library article "Power Macintosh: Run
Time Environment".

QuickTime 2.5
With the release of QuickTime 2.5 the QuickTimeLib not available message
may be occurring because the Extensions Manager control panel is not
recognizing the QuickTime PowerPlug (as well as QuickTime Musical
Instruments) as part of the "System 7.5.x Only" set. If a user restarts
with the "System 7.5.x Only" set, the Extensions Manager will not
recognize these two extension and they will not load. Users need to make
sure these extensions are active.

The reason for this is because, with QuickTime 2.5, the creator types for
QuickTime PowerPlug and QuickTime Musical Instruments changed so
these extensions could have their own individual icons. Since the creator
types are different, and the Extensions Manager uses the creator type to
recognize system extensions as part of the "System 7.5.x Only" set, the
new creator type is not recognized as part of the "System 7.5.x Only" set.
