I see what you did, you put the relevance inside of the action. Generally you'll want to put it as relevance that way the task is only applicable to systems that have quicktime installed. I have copied your work, cleaned up and added the relevance, added os relevance, and linked to the US Cert bulletin here: https://bigfix.me/fixlet/details/12965

Turns out my task does have relevance, it just didn't get exported. Anyway, if you download this, please add the following relevance: (version of client >= "") AND (exists true whose (if true then ((exists key whose (value "DisplayName" of it as string as lowercase contains "quicktime" and name of it starts with "{") of key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" of x32 registries)) else false))

It did when I built the task, or so I thought. I can upload a fresh one tomorrow.

This should have relevance so that it only is relevant on machines with quicktime installed.

Apple has ended support for QuickTime and there are two active exploits in the wild that will not be addressed. QuickTime should be uninstalled from all Windows endpoints.
