  1. hi guys


    one of my software (labelled cd roentgen, a cd-rom released in 1996, with excellent x-ray teaching images, go here if you wish to see : Amazon.com: CD-Roentgen: Interactive Radiology Teaching File on CD-ROM (Electronic Resources from Tki Medcon, Inc.): Michael P McDermott, Thorsten L Krebs, Michael Mcdermott: Books ) is giving me hard time.


    i have installed its software.....it starts up ok...but when i click to see x-ray image, nothing is displayed and an error shows up saying " Quicktime and a graphic decompressor is needed to see image"

    i installed even quicktime....no help....

    googled for this error....observed that people dealing with image/powerpoint production and editing on Windows and Mac face this kind of problem...but solution proposed are specific to their problem....

    also the amazon webpage shows that requirements for this software is Windows 3.1 or Mac os 7.0

    can someone expert please help in solving this error ?

    Windows doesn't support QuickTime compression: http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00534.htm

    But actually download the latest QuickTime and try again
    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

    It's the free one in the grey area (you must first select your OS (Oh and remove the two ticks)

    Please reply back with the results (not sure if all is ok now or not with Quicktime and compression of pics)

    thanks for replyin sir...

    had tried installing latest version....even tried pro version...no benefit...

    problem must be with graphic decompression....

    but i have also tried opening the image (.jpe files inside the program folder) in macbook....images didn't open well...

    but this cd was designed to run in windows 3.1....people have written reviews on amazon even last year....surely they must be running at least windows later than 95....

    they didn't report any problem....

    am i doing something wrong....
