Everything is more complicated for Mac users

It says that I can't open Quick Time Installer because the "classic environment is no longer supported". What does this mean? Do you know of any tips so I can watch Ronald J. Comer's Abnormal Psychology CDROM on my Mac?

You're using an antique version of QuickTime that was developed for... probably Mac OS 9, more than a decade ago. Macs nowadays come with a much newer version of QuickTime by default, so you shouldn't need to install anything.

But this is a brand new Mac that was purchased last month. I'm going to check on the Apple website to see whether I can download an updated version of quick time

I occasionally have a window saying something about updates but I tend just click the "remind me latter" button, or something like that. That's because I'm having too much fun watching chinchilla's and cats giving birth or hamsters mating on Youtube. Truly riveting stuff!

I don't understand the question? You're trying to install and outdated version of QuickTime?

Accepting basic updates that pop up for you automatically so your computer runs optimally and doesn't acquire viruses / malware or have performance issues is "complicated"?

First: The latest version of QuickTime is pre-installed on every Mac and has been for 20 years, regardless of what your CD-ROM (wonder when the last time I typed out CD-ROM was) tells you.

Second: How the hell did she find a file to install an OS 9 version of QuickTime in 2011
