Ihave been told before that if you try to dload quicktime or itunes from a pc that you are automaticially directed to pc dloads. I use my mac for music production only and get so much more work done not having the distraction of the internet... its not without its downfalls thou as with stuff like this. could someone possible post link to the newest version of quicktime cau i simply can not find it...im always directed to windows version. i am running currently running tiger 10.4.11

thanks for ure time

In the finder, go to the Apple menu, run Software Update, it'll find it.

I'm thinking his problem is, if I'm reading it right - his Apple is not connected to the internet, so he won't have access to update, so he wants to download the quicktime for his Mac on his windows based PC that is on the internet.

Honestly, your (the OP) easiest solution is to hook up the Mac to the internet for a brief time and do the software update.

You can *try* this link:

but my guess is it won't work as it will probably still check your OS.

Well, is the Mac in the same room/building as the windows pc that does have internet access? If it is, why not network the windows pc to the Mac and share the connection?
