PHOTOS.EXE program is needed for opening files of type "MOV File".
Have looked everywhere for this program and I can't find it. I have QuickTime, Win.Media Player and Win Movie Player all functioning but I cannot open web tutorial files with MOV. content as I get the message above.
Where can I find "PHOTOS.EXE" please and where do I instal it?

The problem is not that windows can't find photos.exe, but that it's somehow looking for the wrong file.

If you go to Explorer - Tools - Options - File Types. Go down to the file type MOV - and delete the entry.

Next, uninstall Quick Time, then restart the system.

Now re-install Quick Time - and it should associate MOV file with Quick Time, correctly.
