Remotely kill the QuickTime pop-up registration window
Authored by: robmorton on Nov 08, '04 10:15:49AM

Growing tired of the really stupid policy for the QuickTime Installer, I decided to see if I could figure out where I need to comment out in order to remove that stupid popup that stops the installer on a remote machine that you can not see. Looking through the preflight file in the package I found this...

# Marketing (aka Amy Fazio) sez we don't need to bring up the registration dialog anymore
# but let's just comment it out for now in case they change their minds. - duano! 3/16/04
# ... see, QT BRB did change their minds on this. Putting it back until Gibson - duano! 3/17/04
# Putting it back in again for Legal reasons (QT5Pro users need to know they're gonna lose functionality).

It is easy to comment out the lines that bring up the window and make the QuickTime installer one of the more retarded installers that Apple makes in my opinion. This may be easier if you have several machines to update.
