Can't Install QuickTime on Windows 8 64 bit


  • When i try to install iTunes, or QuickTime, i get:
    error occurred during installation of assembly microsoft.VC80.CRT.type="win32", version="8.0.50727.6195", publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b".processorArchitecture="x86"" HRESULT: 0x80070422
    I notice the error message says "win32" and "x86". Does this mean this version will not run on Windows 8 64 Bit?
    what should i do?
    iTunes, Windows 8, Installing, windows, itunes, quicktime, 64-bit, x64

  • ok, the fix was to re-enable Windows Module Installer, which i had disabled because it slowed down system boot.
