Retrieve a lost registration key

If you lost the registration key, check for it in your email, preferences, or Apple Online Store order history:

  • If you purchased a QuickTime 7 Pro registration key from the Apple Online Store, you received the key by email as part of your order acknowledgment. Search your email for “QuickTime Pro.”

  • If your key is currently in use on your computer, you can find the key in QuickTime Player 7 or QuickTime preferences, as described above.

  • If you purchased the key from the Apple Online Store, you might be able to find it in your order history. Go to your account page on the Apple Online Store, then click the link to view your order history. Sign in with the Apple ID that you used when purchasing the key. If the key isn't in your order history, you can contact the Apple Online Store using the contact information on the order-history page. Apple doesn't keep a record of your purchases indefinitely, but a store representative might be able to find the key among your previous orders.

Compatibility with earlier or later versions of QuickTime

Because QuickTime 7 includes royalty-bearing technologies, its pro features require a registration key specifically for QuickTime 7.

  • QuickTime X doesn't require a registration key. QuickTime X is the modern version of QuickTime technology that has been built into OS X since Snow Leopard. It includes QuickTime Player (version 10). If you have older media types or workflows that aren't supported by QuickTime X, you can install QuickTime Player 7 and use your QuickTime 7 Pro registration key with it.
  • QuickTime 6 Pro registration keys don't work with QuickTime 7.
