Jitter objects not working

I have started learning Max MSP/Jitter but when I try to use Jitter objects (on my own or through tutorial patches), Max says the object (such as jit.pwindow) failed to register / no such object / could not allocate object.
Max and MSP objects are working fine. Is there a way to fix the problem with Jitter?

I have installed Quicktime and am using the demo on Windows XP.

Thanks in advance

I have the same problem, only with jit.pwindow in tutorial and downloaded patches. I downloaded some patches that included it and the jit.pwindow was greyed out, max window complained as follows.

But when I tried to instantiate a new jit.pwindow in an empty patch it seemed to work fine, and then the patches where it previously wouldn’t instantiate were fine also. Odd.
