Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windowsme>systemtools (more info?)

Since buying a new box with an Asus P4VP-MX mobo with integrated graphics, when I try to run a magazine's Tutorial using Quicktime
6, I get the message "Couldn't display [program] because a suitable graphics importer could not be found". However, it worked OK on
my old box, which had an nVidia graphics card.

Google has a lot of references to this problem, but sofar I haven't been able to work out exactly what's needed or where to get it.
Any ideas, please?

Try using Windows Media Player instead

I have tried WMP9, but the program doesn't recognise the file type. IrfanView also couldn't open them. However, looking at the
files in Properties I noticed that they weren't strictly .MOV files, as they have three extra characters .MOV']; But
neither right clicking or F2 will let me rename them. It really has me tricked!

Try renaming them in Safe Mode - but they may be deliberately evasive, so
scan them also with a DOS AV.

Thanks, Noel. I will try that and let you know the results.

Started in Safe Mode, but as before, no way to rename those .mov suffixes. I don't think my Grisoft AVG works under DOS. However,
I think I can go back into the program structure and isolate those .mov files before they become part of the graphics interface of
the tutorial. However, before attempting that I will do some more research in Google etc. I'm still stumped as to why the change
from a PCI graphics card to integrated graphics should create this problem.
Digging into QuickTime, the program definitely recognises the existing graphics setup, but can't/won't activate it.

Later: Irfanview, with a Quick Time .dll plugin seems to run the program after a fashion. Will continue with this line for now.

Thanks, Jim

Jim, try Copy & Paste (NOT Move or Cut & Paste) to a new location and see if
they will rename there.

Might just work?

Thanks, Matt. Good idea, but same nil result. However, now I have the program working quite well through IrfanView, I shall ditch
Quicktime entirely. Irfan actually gives a better/larger screen display. In fact it's an incredibly good program for the (zero)
price!

Good to hear that IrfanView has overcome the problem - good program too! -
and you are able to view your files.

As a matter of interest :-

Do you mean it (they) wouldn't Copy & Paste your files or they wouldn't
re-name?

The Graphic Interface files wouldn't Copy, and seem to be nothing more than Shortcuts. I don't understand how the whole

the job for me. Thanks for the help,

Jim..
