Installing Harmony Dependencies on Windows

On Windows, some features of Harmony rely on the following software:

  • Windows Media Player must be installed to enable Harmony's audio and video transcoding capabilities. On most consumer versions of Windows, it is installed by default.
  • QuickTime Player is required if you want to export or import movie files in QuickTime Movie (.mov) format. Otherwise, Harmony will only be able to export movie files in Windows Media Video (.wmv) format and will not be able to import movie files at all. However, the application does not need QuickTime Player to launch and can be used without it.
  • Adobe Reader is required on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in order to read PDF documents. It can also be installed on Windows 10, but Windows 10 is bundled with Microsoft Edge, which can be used to read PDF files.
NOTE: Windows Media Player is not supported on Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic.
