I've had some difficulty but managed to get it to work well. Here's the steps I followed:

1) When you install quicktime on windows 8 the qtcf.dll is NOT added to the windows system directory.
As such, engine doesn't know it exists. It seems to be looking for a system registered DLL instead of the registry key associated with quicktime.

What you have to do is copy the qtcf.dll from the quicktime install folder (default C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem) to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 .

This lets Engine find the DLL and will get rid of the DLL warnings if you have them.
Denon, if you guys need help I've worked a few years as an MSI, installshield, and build developer :P.


2) I was getting freezing when analyzing tracks. To fix this, right click on the engine shortcut, or EXE itself, go to the compatibility tab, and enable "Windows 7 compatibility mode" and also select "Run this program as an administrator".

After this, everything works like normal :)
