QuickTime for Windows 1.1
Didn't have an installer. Used the files included on The Vortex: Quantum Gate II CD. The setup.exe and help files were not included. As per .../qtw/readme.txt, all files go into c:\qtw.
Player and Viewer executed without error. Was able to access the printer setup panel on both.
What does not
Player executed but could not play available MOVs. Viewer executed but could not open available JPGs. They may not be fully installed.
What was not tested
Playing and viewing files.

An archive containing images of the installation disks for developer version 1.1.1 is available from MacGUI. However, this an Apple self-extracting archive of an archive of two disk images created on a Mac. To extract the images you need to install "The Unarchiver" (unar). It is available in the Debian/Ubuntu repositories as "unar".
The bin file needs to extracted, then the archive within that, then the header of the disk imaging program needs to be removed from both disk images to make them vfat-compatible. For Wine the images need to be loopback mounted to a pair of directories. During installation DOS device a: needs to be mapped to the first directory via a symlink. When the installer asks for disk #2 the a: link needs to be replaced with a link to the second directory. After the installer completes the mounts can be removed. An error tends to happen at the end of the installation but probably doesn't affect the installation. The rough install process is as follows. Adjust for your directory paths and file names.
First, verify the archive:
md5sum QuickTime_for_Windows_1.1.1.bin # c4685b5878a68dcbb7846ed19df1768b QuickTime_for_Windows_1.1.1.bin sha1sum QuickTime_for_Windows_1.1.1.bin # fa819977572373577b3b5b021e71f261eba2007e QuickTime_for_Windows_1.1.1.bin
Extract the disk images and mount them:
unar QuickTime_for_Windows_1.1.1.bin unar -D "QuickTime for Windows (1.1.1)" tail -c +85 './-not a Macintosh disk-.imag' >disk1.img tail -c +85 './not a Macintosh disk-.image' >disk2.img sudo losetup /dev/loop1 …/yourpath/disk1.img sudo mkdir /mnt1 sudo mount -t vfat /dev/loop1 /mnt1 ls /mnt1 sudo losetup /dev/loop2 …/yourpath/disk2.img sudo mkdir /mnt2 sudo mount -t vfat /dev/loop2 /mnt2 ls /mnt2
Start up Wine and map a: to the first disk mountpoint:
export WINEARCH="win32" export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine-qt1" wineboot rm -d "$WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/a:" "$WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/a::" ln -s /mnt1 "$WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/a:"
Start the installer:
wine start.exe /unix "/mnt1/SETUP.EXE"
When asked for disk #2:
rm -d "$WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/a:" "$WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/a::" ln -s /mnt2 "$WINEPREFIX/dosdevices/a:"
When installation is complete:
sudo umount /mnt1 /mnt2 && losetup -d /dev/loop1 /dev/loop2 && rm -d /mnt1 /mnt2
No start menu entries are created by the installer. The Movie Player (PLAYER.EXE) and Picture Viewer (VIEWER.EXE) are located in C:\QTW\BIN by default.
wine start.exe /unix "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/QTW/BIN/PLAYER.EXE" wine start.exe /unix "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/QTW/BIN/VIEWER.EXE"
The QuickTime v1.1.1 developer install includes source code and API documentation.
Movie Player only supports QuickTime (*.mov) files. After installation of the developer version a sample movie, SAMPLE.MOV can be found in …/QTW/SAMPLES.
