You must have an active connection to the Internet because a browser will then launch and take you directly to the Apple Store.  From there you complete the steps to purchase QuickTime Pro.

Apple will then provide to you a QuickTime Pro registration code via email.  Once you obtain the code, you will have to enter the code via System Preferences to complete the upgrade.
