How To Run Demo Install w/o QuickTime?

Question

We prefer to run clean systems, which means as few codec apps as possible. Our Windows workstations are custom installed with minimal DirectX and OpenGL support. That said, we would prefer not to install QuickTime in order to eval the demo of VW12. How to skirt the problematic issue of having to install QT? Is there a command line argument we can pass on to the executable to bypass the OT check? Or perhaps we can be provided with a demo with the features QT provides. Assuming QT exists for the sake of providing visual aid. That said, I'm sure most of us would be fine with the existing text-based documentation.

As far as I know it is not possible to run VW without Quicktime. You may not need the player or the codecs, but there are other components of Quicktime that VW requires.

This is unfortunate as we only require the basic drafting features VW provides. Currently using Ashlar-Vellum Graphite, which provides most of what we need. We were hoping to eval a similar, lightweight alternative to AutoCAD...

The basic version of QuickTime takes up relatively small amounts of hard drive space, is free, and very easy to install. Most computers come with a form of QuickTime already installed on it since it's is fast becoming a requirement for many other applications.

The purpose of QuickTime being needed for VW is not limited to rendering or color drafting. It is not possible to install, much less run VW without QuickTime being installed.
