Yeah, that's what an installation usually is.

This is bad.

This is a limitation of QuickTime.  There really is little that we can
do about it.

I don't know how to solve this.  It appears to be a XiphQT problem,
and I'm not the XiphQT developer; I only created the installer.  We
will look into this, however.

Meanwhile, can you make sure that the XiphQT.qtx file is under the
QuickTime\QTComponents folder?  Have you retstarted QuickTime?
