Any fix for the "Unable to convert sound file" error message on Windows 10? No quicktime currently installed

Every time i add a sound file (mp3 format, tried converting to 40kbps which didnt do anything) i dont get any wavelength preview… just a straight black line. Upon exporting the project the attached error message comes up. Any known fixes to this issue? Based off of other forum posts it seems to be quite common on Windows 10 users.


You’ll need to install Quicktime if you want to process audio currently.
Also it helps to avoid spaces and special symbols in the name of the
audio file and folder structure you are importing it from.

On Windows 10 the lastest Quicktime is not working so well 7.7.8
and 7.7.9. You will need to install an older version to have it working
