Can't get Quicktime 7 to work on my PC

Okay, I admit it. Things have been so slow of late that I'm forced to consider applying for a gig with a commercial facitily ( see: .::. View topic - Pay Cut ). If that were to happen, I KNOW I'm going to have to work with Pro Tools. I'm a serious advocate of Nuendo. That's the platform around which my studio is based. The only experiences I've had with Pro Tools was working in other studios, wishing they had Nuendo. So to prepare for the possibilty of having to go job hunting, I picked up one of those interactive DVD's that teaches basic PT use.

When I popped it into my PC, I got no sound. So I called product support and they told me that I needed a newer version of QT to make it play properly. Okay. So I upgraded from 6.1 Pro to 7.2 free. Now I had sound. But it was all garbled and stammering. So I called apple. They weren't very helpful, making it very clear that since I was a PC owner using their product, I hadn't made the neccessary commitment, by owning a mac, to be genuinely helped. I was told to un-install and re-install QT ("No! Ya think?").

One other site suggested that I needed to update the drivers in Direct X to resolve the issue. So I did. No change. If I didn't hate Pro Tools before, I certainly would by now. After 2 ridiculous days trying to resolve this issue, I gave up and re-installed 6.1 Pro which works flawlessly. But now I'm forced to watch the training DVD on the upstairs office PC (?!!?). This is nuts.

Oh yeah, I also purchased the N2 training DVD just to see if I could pick up any other tips I might not be aware of. IT PLAYED PERFECTLY!

Anybody here have any suggestions on how I can get QT 7.2 to work on my STUDIO PC?
