With Quick Time Pro I receive the following error when trying to open ANY file, including MOV:
"Error 1856: an unknown error occurred".
I tried uninstalling, downloading the latest version of Quick Time Player, then re-installing.
Does Quick Time Pro not function on Win7 64-bit OS?

Quick Time Player = version 7.6.9
Laptop = Win7 Home Premium (64-bit)
  2.53 GHz Intel Core i3 380
  382 GB free hard drive space
  Intel HD Graphics Display Adapter
  Conexant SmartAudio HD
  Intel Display Adapter
  4 GB RAM

Thank you.  Alan P.

From the searches I've done this fix works for a number of people running into that same error:

Try this:

1. Fully uninstall QuickTime
2. Download the K-lite Codec pack (I downloaded the full version here http://www.free-codecs.com/K_lite_codec_pack_download.htm)
3. Install it and accept its changes it will make
4. Once K-lite is installed, now you can re-install QuickTime

Thanks for the idea of searching for 64-bit error 1856.  The solution that worked for me is from an Apple user-to-user forum:    
                http://discussions.info.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2679772&tstart=15
 
"You can set your QuickTime Player to always run as an administrator.

Right-click your QuickTimePlayer.exe at:
                                             
C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QuickTimePlayer.exe

... and select "Properties". In the Compatibility tab, check "Run as Administrator" and click OK."

My own comment is included as part of the solution because the first solution did not work for me, but the idea of searching for the error msg on a 64-bit Win7 system is a good one.
