CS3 flash video importing

Hey everyone,

I was recently working on a project where I was trying to import a video (.avi and .wmv) and I kept getting this error...

"A required system library did not initialize properly. Please ensure you have DirectShow 9 or QuickTime 6.5 or higher installed on your system."

I got this error even though I had the latest Directx(11) installed. Oh, and if you're wondering what 'DirectShow' is, don't worry, it comes packaged along with the latest installations of Directx.

Okay, first off, this is not a Windows 7 error as I originally thought, this is actually a problem with CS3. :mad:

Even though it says 'or', you can only fix this problem by installing both Directx AND Quicktime. Once they are both installed, restart flash and you should be able to import without any problems.

You would think for the thousands of Rands (or Dollars) that you end up paying for this product you would getting something void of retarded bugs like this... :frown:
