    I'm trying to use software updater to update to Quicktime 7.4 but it says I don't have appropriate access privileges. I am the admin user on my machine. Why can't I update it?

    I'm having exactly the same problem - is it a general glitch ? I'm trying to update on my MacBookPro - haven't tried on my power pc Imac yet.

    QT 7.3 updates fine on my Power PC iMac G5 but not on my Intel core duo MacBookPro - weird

    Have you tried downloading the QuickTime update from Apple's download page and run the .mpkg installer?

    Thank you

    iCeFuSiOn,
    THANK YOU !!!! :D That worked perfectly - all I needed to do was download QT7.4 from the Apple site and nothing else - worked like a dream. Thanks again iCeFuSiOn ! :apple:

    Glad to hear that it worked for you! I'd also recommend running a Permissions Repair at some point just to be on the safe side (you can do this by running Disk Utility, First Aid tab, and then "Repair Permissions")

    Have a good day!
