Q100093: QuickTime security on Windows



UPDATE: Nuke 10.0v2 is now available to download and this release removes the dependency on QuickTime libraries on Windows operating systems from NUKE, NUKEX, NUKE STUDIO, HIERO and HIEROPLAYER.

We recommend that you update to this build and fully uninstall QuickTime for Windows as recommended by the US Department of Homeland Security.


This article explains the recent Apple security update and how this affects your Nuke usage. 

Recently Apple announced that they were no longer supporting QuickTime for Windows due to potential security holes and users are being advised to uninstall QuickTime on Windows machines. More information can be found on the official Apple website.
We are aware that security is of high priority to our customers and that keeping QuickTime installed on Windows can cause a conflict of interests with the above advice.

Nuke however requires QuickTime to run and unfortunately there is no workaround we can offer currently. 
Our teams are currently investigating this issue and will update you once we learn more. We care about our customers' security and are working to resolve this as soon as possible. 

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause in the meantime.
