I'm having an issue with Software Update on Quicktime 7.5.7 for a couple of weeks now.

When I try installing it, I get the following error:

The update “QuickTime” can’t be saved.

A networking error has occurred: Cannot open file (-3001). Make sure you can connect to the Internet, then try again.

I already tried deleting the following files Library/Preferences com.apple.SoftwareUpdate.plist and the content of the Library/Updates folder, but the problem is persistent.
The strange thing is that I just was able to install a raw camera update without a problem... and since I just posted this, obviously, I can connect to the internet...

I am also unable to find a standalone updater file on Apple's download site... there are Quicktime 7.5.5 ones, but not for the 7.5.7 one.

Thanks in advance for your help...

Don't know where you got your update from, but mine shows as current. Is it a beta?
A minor update to 7.5.5 for those with the Mini DisplayPort having problems with the external displays. Basically doesn't show unless you have a machine with a Mini Displayport.
