QuickTime 7 and Cambridge Learner's Dictionary CD-ROM
If QT7 is installed, CLD3 displays an error message when you open the CLD3 application. If you click Cancel then the program later displays a new error message when you click on a sound icon, and the program does not play the sound file.
You can fix the problem in the following way:
First of all, create a new folder Download this file and save it into your new folder Extract or unzip the patch into this folder. You can do this by right-clicking on it and selecting Extract here Close CLD3 Go into My computer Go into your hard drive, usually C drive. Open the folder called program files Open the Cambridge folder and/or cld3 folder Open the plugins folder. Remove all files in the plugin directory — i.e. the files: npnul32.dll npqtplugin2.dll npqtplugin3.dll npqtplugin4.dll npqtplugin5.dll npqtplugin6.dll npqtplugin7.dll npqtplugin.dll QuickTimePlugin.class Copy the files that you unzipped earlier from our patch into the now empty plugin folder. After this operation the plugin directory should contain the following files: npnul32.dll npqtplugin2.dll npqtplugin.dll QuickTimePlugin.class
When you have made this change, CLD3 will open without any error message and you can play sound without receiving an error message.
