Preview funtion with PDFs, quicktime works with mac not windows

Post

Hi guys, 

 

I am a new FMP user and am trying to get a solution that was designed by a team in germany on Macs to run on windows XP.

They designed this on FMP9 and I am using FMP 10.

 

The preview function is not working on the XP version, though it is running on mac. The issue seems to be that Quicktime cannot open PDF files on windows like it can on the mac.

 

Will this be an issue when using IWP? this is what we intend to do.

  

The error that I am presented with when trying to use the preview funtion is

 

"The QuickTime movie file could not be inserted. Make sure the move has been saved as a self-contained and playable on no-Apple platforms (709)"

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

 

Jim
