Errors Installing Software

Hi, I have browesed the forums many a time and found answers to my questions but this one I have yet to find. Recently I cannot upgrade any apple related software. I am running the last gen G4 Powerbook(10.4.8). Today I tried to install the new iTunes 7.1 i belive. It will download fine but will not install. I tried from the site and the apple updater. Turns out that there were three updates(iTunes, QuickTime, and ProAppRuntime) from apple and non could install. All gave me a error installing software. I had also tried installing MatLab for use in one of my courses earlier this month and got the same result. I have repaired my permissions, somthing i do quite regulalry through use of a automater script. Now since these arnt must have upgrades im not overly worried about them, im more worried about not being able to upgrade somthing Key later down the road.
Thanks

Do you have a retail Leopard disc that you can use to install with?
You can also try installing 10.4 using Target Disk Mode.
Please post back with results,

  • Error install software on Windows Sever 2012

    Hello!
    I'm using a VPS Cloud. used OS Windows Sever 2012.
    I can not install any
    software on it. Simple as firefox, error: Cloud not find...runtime or adobe flash player...ect.
    Please help me install.
    Thank you
    Regards
    Danny |

    So, if I understand correctly, you have cloud hosted servers (Server 2012) and you're trying to manage via ConfigMgr 2012 (install software etc).
    1. Are these servers part of your domain?
    2. What connectivity is there to the servers?
    3. Have you created a boundary for the servers and added to a boundary group?
    4. Have you successfully installed a ConfigMgr client and it is reporting correctly?

  • Error installing software - administrator privileges

    I'm trying to install software via Adobe Application Manager using my creative cloud subscritpion but i'm always getting errors.
    The first time i installed things were fine, i was downloading photoshop but i had to reboot my mac and that's when i started having the error "administrator privileges are required to install. please retry or cancel to install later." for all the prpduct lines of software, even after inserting my mac administrator login.
    after chceking different options nothing seems to solve the problem http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/general-installation-troubleshooting-cs5-cs5.html
    - logging in with a different user (with administrator privileges)
    - enabling a root user
    - installing adobe support advisor (does not detect any errors). i have manually checked the logs but there are no logs registered at all for this errors.
    - i have even downloaded again the adobe app manager software again but i can't seem to locate where the previous file  is (the utilities folder with the folder for this app does not contain the program itself or the unisntaller, just a bunch of different stuff), so i think that the new file does not really install a new version of the adobe manager
    i'm really desperate here. have so much work to do today and no solutions. Any ideas?
    MAC OSXLion v10.8.2

    seems that i solved the problem:
    i found a post with a similar problem and they referred to an updated application manager file. the link was only for windows but i searched and installed this one http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=4774&fileID=4438 and i can donwnload programs again
    it seems that it's different from the file that i downloaded yesterday from adobe creative cloud user page https://creative.adobe.com that is older

  • [b] There were errors installing software [-b]  BomFatalError

    I recently ran Software Updater... from OS 10.4.8 to 10.4.9
    Background:
    My powerbook G4 started to crash regularly after update to iTunes 7.1.1 and OS 10.4.9 (2 days ago). Lower memory slot (SODIMM0/J25LOWER) no longer recognizes any memory modules in lower slot, since update. (Perhaps logic board is fried?) I ran Diskwarrior; Disk Utility and TechTool Pro 4. Only minor repairs to Disk Permissions. Now Safari, Mail, VirusBarrier, and other applications refuse to open. Clicking F12 for Dashboard widgets is scarey... Widgets disappeared before my eyes.
    I since have tried to do a "Archive and Install" of OS 10.4 from the original Tiger Disk. After running through 85% or more of progress, I get message:
    Please try again
    Install Log states:
    Date: Time localhost:BomFatalError - cpio read error: bad file format
    Date: Time localhost:Install failed: Some files for Essentials may not have been written correctly.
    On subsequent attempts to reinstall (Archive and Install), the Preserve User Settings box is dimmed. And Installer indicates there were (again) errors installing.
    I can reboot from either and emergency external disk (edisk using minimum OS X software 10.4.5), or by using the Tiger Installation disk.
    Now when booting from external disk; there are dozens of odd named folders on my internal hard drive "var"; "etc", "OSInstall.mpkg.93E2bJXo", and more. I'm afraid to do a clean install at this point... (I'm afraid I'll losse my preferences, and misc application files) -- it took me 2 days to reinstall OS X, and all my software, updates and settings a month ago when the internal drive was replaced due to a savage virus called 'OSX.Exploit.Meta_Data.B'
    My Questions:
    What exactly is a "BomFatalError"?
    Is there anyway to reinstall Tiger, short of a clean install?
    Could the erratic behavior of my powerbook be caused only by a few corrupted system files, or is the potentially damaged logic board a greater culprit?
    PS: S.M.A.R.T. status of hard drive is 'verified', so don't believe new drive is at fault. Besides no errors found with Disk Warrior, Disk Utility, or TechTool Pro.

    Yours thoughts greatly appeciated!
    Powerbook G4   Mac OS X (10.4.9)   1.5 Ghz/1.5GB RAM/120GB drive+ext HD

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!
    Some but not all 1.5 Ghz Powerbooks are covered by a lower RAM slot repair program which does not require AppleCare for a free repair:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303173
    I would investigate that possibility first. If out of AppleCare or the exchange program, these places can usually repair it out of warranty for less than Apple:

    http://www.microdocusa.com/
    http://www.macspecialist.com/
    http://www.techrestore.com/
    A BOM Fatal error usually has to do with the archiving software used to extract the archive files used to make the software installer.
    Mac OS X does not have a clean install per say, and this user tip of mine explains that:
    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=607614
    And no you can't reinstall except restoring from backup after an erase and install and upgrading via the combo update. Here's my upgrade FAQ and backup FAQ which should help you once your RAM is fixed*:

    http://www.macmaps.com/backup.html
    Virus Barrier may be the problem.
    Using the wrong Techtool Pro or Disk Warrior can also be a problem as my safe utilities FAQ* explains:

  • Fatal error installing software photosmart c7250 on windows vista 32 bit

    Issue with Uninstall and Install print driver software on my PC - printer is HP Photosmart all in one C7250 - wireless network hook-up
    My printer had been working for many years.  Then some of the photo print functionality had stopped working - I suspect because there may have been a conflict with multiple HP print drivers on my PC.  So I attempted to Unistall all HP software (via window uninstall).  All successfully uninstalled except:
    C:\program files/hp/digital imaging\esupport\hpzscr01.exe
    C:\program files/hp/digital imaging\ocr\hpzscr01.exe
    C:\pro...
    C:\pr...
    I was able to manually unistall the first 2 files since I could see where they were located.  But I have no idea about the other 2 becasue the error message did not provide full name as you can see.  I tried to install anyway (using HP Solution for Install Errors - Windows Vista).  Followed all instructions.  The install of latest driver/software (downloaded from the HP website) got as far as detecting my wireless printer; then it gets stuck at the config stage at 96% for 15+ minutes - then runtime error situation code 07417929.  HELP!  I think it's all becasue I can't unistall these phantom files.  does anyone have advice?
    ---------------- More INFO ---------------------
    After above, I am able to print in the basic way - but my HP Solution Center Software in not operational.  Message when I try to open Solution Center is "No HP Devices habe been detected." 
    I have a LOG file with some PRT Screens that I wish I could attach to this note (can't figure out how).  It may give more insight to the errors.
    This question was solved.
    View Solution.

    The security settings are for local security, if you are not in a corporate enviroment, there should be no reason to worry.
    Something we have not tried yet would be to
    1. Uninstall the current HP software.
    2. Turn off the printer and unplug it.
    3. Install the software, and at the point it asks whether it is a wireless or wired connection, choose wireless, and when the configuration window pops up immediately cancel it.
    4. It will go back to the page that asks you if it is a wired or wireless connection, choose cancel again and select OK.
    5. It will finish installation then ask about placing an icon on the desktop, choose yes and tell it to complete the software installation and place an icon on the desktop.
    6. Once that completes, plug in the printer, turn it on, and click on the icon to have it search for, configure, and install the printer.
    Let me know what happens.

  • Trouble Installing Software & Updates, Please Help!

    So my problem is installing software. I can download the packages just fine, they appear on my desktop and I can open the installer. The installer will start going along with it's business and finally at the very end it tells me that there was "an error installing software" or something to that effect.
    When I try to install updates from Software Update it tells me "Make sure you have permission to write to /private/tmp/501 TemporaryItems com.apple.SoftwareUpdate, then try again."
    I cannot find this folder anywhere on my computer, Is this a folder? I don't even know.
    Any help or insights would be extremely appreciated!!!!!!!
    400 MHz PowerPC G3   Mac OS X (10.3.9)   iMac DV Slot Loading CD-ROM

    Hi Laura,
    first of all: WELCOME TO THE DISCUSSIONS!
    The directory you mentioned, /tmp/501/TemporaryItems/ exists at the top level of the directory tree, but it is Unix stuff that has been made invisible so that it does not get damaged or trashed. You can do a Finder search for the invisible "private" folder, and in that the "tmp" folder is not invisible, it is just inside an invisible folder. Once you find "private", you can open it by double-clicking its Icon in the Find display. Now you can see the 501 folder. Click on that and you see TemporaryItems.
    Now you can click that folder, type Apple-i and change the permissions to yourself.
    The different 501 temporary folders are here:
    /private/var/tmp/mds/
    /private/var/tmp/folders/
    /.TemporaryItems/
    /private/var/tmp/
    In the Finder you could also choose "Go to folder..." and enter the path as I written above.

  • Error 16389 running a Task Sequence to install software

    We've run into multiple WinXPProSP3 computers generating error code 16389 when trying to run a TS.  After searching on Google, we found this, 
    http://blogs.technet.com/b/smsandmom/archive/2007/10/29/sccm-2007-task-sequence-fails-drive-letter-not-displayed.aspx
    , which led to another article to modify a RegKey,  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} , to add a key of UpperFilters, with a value of PartMgr.  The key WAS missing on the machines with
    the error, and, adding that key and value DOES fix the problem.  This key and value seem to be default for the OS.
    However, searching Google for that RegKey has a LOT of suggestions to delete that key and value, due to issues with USB Thumbdrives and iPods not being seen when plugged in--so, it seems that there may be a conflict.
    Does anyone know of a fix for Error 16389 without having to add that key, if it's going to cause other problems?
    Thanks.

    Hi,
    Will you please past the detailed errors in the smsts.log?
    From your description your are using TS to install software right?
    If so you should first make sure this software package meats the following requirement when it was deployed through TS:
    this program can be installed under local system account.
    this program can be installed without any user interaction (such as: press next button).
    this program will not force computer reboot, it allows sccm ts to manage the reboot.
    If your OSD TS return 16389 exit code, you can try to change the volume license keys. Because once i have seem this error and it was solved by changing the volume license key.
    Hope this will help.
    Thanks

  • There must be a real solution to "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"

    "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"
    I've spent hours researching this error - Seems like many people have the same issue although there is no difinitive fix or known cause.
    I'm hoping someone here has an answer.
    Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM (HP)
    This is not an upgraded Vista system.
    It's not a specific driver related issue as it's the same response/effect be it graphics/chip set/usb/printer drivers.
    Please dont suggest to flatten and re-install or run a repair install - It's not an option, I only have remote access to the unit
    as it's currently in field use.
    This is a machine specific issue - identical machine purchased at the same time and configured the same has no issue.
    So the story.
    User has been fine for weeks - no hardware of software changes except Windows Updates.
    A Camera/USB connection that was working no longer does.
    Tried in all USB ports
    Plug in - windows announces found new hardware, tries to install drivers then fails
    with "Windows found software for your device but encountered an error installing ...."
    Device manager finds and identifies device although it is in the 'Unknown Device" category.
    Manually updating drivers via search/internet or point directly at a driver has exactly the same effect.
    Thinking this was just the camera drivers - I researched and downloaded new drivers from camera manufacturers sites
    Fuji and Canon.
    Same effect.
    Deleted/uninstalled drivers completely, deleted/uninstalled all USB root hub and USB devices (hidden and visible)
    SFC /Scannow finds no error
    Cold boot finds USB and chipset(?) devices on boot attempts to reinstall then we get
     "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"
    So now I have no usb devices at all - memory stick/card reader/printer...... nada.
    in fact if I try to update any device driver I get the same message generated.
    Restore point does not help either. 
    After much trawling I found reference to a permisions issue and stale driver cache data.
    (This is using an administrator account - not user with admin permissions?)
    I'm willing to try anything at this time
    I deleted the infcache.1 and other .dat files under c:\windows\system32\driverstore
    Copied the usb  .inf and .pnf from the appropriate FileRepository directory into c:\windows\inf
    Uninstalled all the usb/unkown devices from device manager again.
    Rebooted
    Takes a little longer to boot as I take it it's rebuilding the driver cache then
    a very short hurrah!!!
    I can now use usb memory card and pen drives - no issue
    Plug in a camera or printer...
    "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"
    Several attempt at this trying different driver versions.
    It should not be vendor specific, the other field machine that works is using Microsoft drivers for these devices.
    I even copied the drivers from one machine to the other - repeated everything above...
    "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"
    And then the nail in my sanity
    Try windows update....
    Reboot
    "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error installing"
    but this time its different.
    The device it thinks it cannot install is the generic MTP-PTP drivers  (Photo Transfer Protocol -so am I getting somewhere)
    so it still finds but cannot install.
    The cameras are always found but appear as 'unknown devices' and cannot be accessed
    Uninstall all USB/unkown again - reboot..
    Same message and this time I've lost all the USB again.
    Restore point to before Win Update gets me USB back again although I still have no cameras  - so theres an update issue as well.
    This has to be tied down to a file access/ registry problem although I'm loath to go cutting about without some guidance.
    I'm no great believer in 'registry cleaners' unless anyone can point to a definitive/no ad's/sales version that really works.
    As I said above, flattening/rebuild at this time is not an option - the user is not best pleased and I'm completley stumped.
    If anyone has experienced(manu of you have) and fixed(still to find one) this issue please let me know how as soon as possible.

    I know I am replying to an old thread - but I have the answer and resolved this error, and since this message comes up first in search results, and part of my answer came from this thread, I wanted to help someone else as this took an extra
    12 hours and a lot of technical insight to resolve. See below for detailed explanation that others ask for above.
    My original issue was that iTunes didnt reinstall. generating this error that said I am trying to access an unavailable network resource and to browse to find itunes64setup (again). This may partly have been due to me deleting old install version folders.
    Research led me to completely uninstall apple products and reinstall per their instruction and fixed the issue with iTunes. see
    Remove and reinstall iTunes and related software components for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8 - Apple Support
    The SAME error I had while updating itunes recurred while uninstalling it from my Windows 7 SP1 system...so I went to microsoft Fixit and attempted to correct and it properly uninstalled iTunes for me, which allowed the reinstall.
    What didnt work was my USB web root/ root hub, which partly involved my older system and USB 1.0, and the delete/reinstall existing drivers with the c:\windows\winsxs folder as source of drivers (thank you Magon Liu!!!) which I had to figure out what/why
    and how.
    Then I had an intel chipset issue...my new Iphone wasn't recognizing in plug and play, and there was an error with installing the device drivers for my new iphone 6. Manual applications didn't work, even though a generic device showed in control panel -
    device manager with a yellow !
    Per above blog answer - I tried to remove and reinstall my USB controller or update the drivers (I have an Alienware M15 laptop - a few years old.) I discovered that the USB host controller - an Intel(R) 5 Series / 3400 Series Chipset family USB Enhanced
    Host controller - (port) was not covered by current Intel chipset programs which are Series 6 and later, but did have an update (8/20/2009 v9.1.1.1020)  that supported USB 2.0 (and therefore 3.0 backwards compatibility which as an issue with my new iPhone
    and some USB thumb drives.) To find this I had to look at the Support - Downloads and Drivers - browse for drivers and somewhere found an option to look for older no longer supported drivers. I found infinst_autol.exe for my case.
    Once downloaded I tried to install and failed. Found the log in C:\Intel\Logs and contains:
    [InstallDev]
              [Device]
                Driver = C:\Users\DAVIDS~1\AppData\Local\Temp\IPMx7\WIN7\ibexusb.inf

                Installed INF =

                Using RegDeleteKeyEx
    !!!         ERROR 0xE0000246: DriverPackageInstall generated an unexpected error
     HERE'S THE ADDED EXPLANATION TO BRIAN'S POST THAT EXPLAINS THE SECURITY ISSUE:
    This turned out to be an error for two reasons. First, after manually running the command in an "run as administrator" window (same error result), thinking it related to my anti-virus (turned that off/disabled firewall and A/V), and from this thread
    granting my user administrative rights to files in an install folder and trying to reinstall inf files and drivers from C:\Windows\winsxs vs my copied infinst_autol.exe expansion (as found from log in C:\Users\David Samuels\AppData\Local\Temp\IPMx7\WIN7 folder).....that
    there was an easier solution as the reason this error actually happens is a permissions problem.
    To access the proper windows system folders - you have to be the TrustedInstaller service - not just in the administrator group...or you have to be the actual "Administrator" account. To become actual administrator on
    your own laptop, Open a command window "run CMD.exe as administrator", then execute command
    > net user administrator /active:yes
    This creates a local PC Administrator account with no password. Coincidentally it has proper permissions to windows directories for installing drivers. Log in as this user, go to device manager and update the USB hub and any other drivers. if updating the
    USB root - it doesn't replace it right away as the system cant disable the currently resident in memory "running" driver  - you have to update, then restart the system, log in as administrator and repeat at the next lower layer that has issues.
    Once completed - log in as yourself again and disable the administrator account in a command window with > net user administrator /active:no
    This in my case enabled all my USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices on my originally only USB 1.0 laptop and everything else works properly again - I hope this helps many of you to resolve your own issues that were difficult to find and resolve and that got as far as
    this thread. Good luck!

  • There were errors installing the software

    Mac Mini G4 1.25GHz / 512MB / 40GB / Combo / Modem.
    Ser: YM6***TAB
    <Edited by Moderator: Personal Info - Please See Terms of Use>
    Originally Mum's Mini was "doing strange things", so I had to drive 150 miles to try to sort it out.
    First I downloaded AppleJack and tried it out on my own G4 Tower before heading north to visit Mum. Applejack installed OK from my USB memory stick.
    Unfortunately, it didn't occur to me to take a spare keyboard and I was unable to get her Mac Mini (with a miniature keyboard) to respond to any key presses at start-up, which foiled all attempts to use AppleJack or even single user mode!
    However, I was able to use DiskWarrior and it found several corrupted files on the Hard Drive, which it claimed (after two attempts) were repaired. I then "repaired permissions" and ejected the DiskWarrior disc. Then I had the bright idea of going to "Software Update" in the Apple Menu. This downloaded the latest OS10.4.11 and started to install it. After 20 minutes it reported that there was a "problem with installation" and I should reboot and try again, which I did, with the same result. So then I had the amazingly bright idea of erasing the drive and installing 10.4 from the original DVD. This got several minutes into the procedure before reporting a problem. "There were problems installing the software".
    I gave up at that point, left Mum my iBook to use and brought the Mac Mini home.
    I was able to boot it up from an external Firewire HD, which contained a clone of the boot drive from my own G4 Mac Mini. It seemed to work OK so I tried the Tiger installation DVD again. It failed as before but I was able to save the Crash Log onto the Firewire Drive and you can view it here:
    http://www.amstard.co.uk/temp/OSInstallCrashLog.txt
    (I hope this means something to somebody! The way I interpret it is that it installed a file then discovered that file was corrupted?)
    I used Prosoft "Drive Genius" to erase the internal Hard Drive again and it reported that all was well. But I still couldn't install the OS.
    After that, I couldn't even get the Mac Mini to boot from the external Firewire drive. It just produces a black oblong on a gray screen with a stalled "cog wheel". Here's a photo that I took:
    http://www.amstard.co.uk/temp/screenphoto.jpg
    There is nothing connected except the standard USB keyboard and mouse at this point and the external Firewire drive.
    It does boot up with the generic Tiger installation DVD. I can run Disk Utility, which reports no errors on the Hard Drive. But it fails when I try to install the OS 10.4 with an error message "There were problems installing the software" (generic OS10.4 installer) or "There were errors installing the software" (original Mac Mini OS10.4 installer).
    I have fitted a new 120GB drive and replaced the RAM. The OS still fails to install on the newly formatted drive. The Apple site suggests a firmware update for this error message but doesn't list one for the Mini.
    I have tried installing OS10.4 from the original Mac Mini installations discs and from a generic 10.4 installer. Both give the same "There were errors installing the software" message.
    I have "zapped the PRAM" without making any difference to this symptom.
    I have tried doing the simplest installation without any additional fonts, language translators or bundled software.
    Any suggestions - apart from "scrap it!"?

    Since this is an original G4 mini, there is no reason at all that any full retail 10.4 installer, or the original MacOS installer that came with the mini would not work. Later minis, released after Tiger's release date were in some instances unable to boot from the early versions of the Tiger retail installer because 10.4.0 or 10.4.1 pre-dated the versions those minis came supplied with, but clearly that isn't the case with your system.
    If you are certain that the MacOS install disk you have is the one that original one that came with the mini (which should be a late version of MacOS 10.3.x), then the only obvious thing to check is that you have correctly partitioned the drive (it should be partitioned in the Apple Partition Map scheme, and then formatted as MacOS Extended (Journalled). If those parameters are met and you continue to get the error from a valid installer for that system, then the potential causes narrow to such things as defective install disks (unlikely since you have tried more than one), defective optical drive unlikely because you can boot from the install disk using the drive), or defective logic board/disk controller - which is a distinct possibility since it's possible that was responsible for the first drive failure (or the indications of failure).
    Boot the system using the original MacOS installer and using Disk Utility, set the new internal drive up again with the APM partitioning and MacOS Extended (Journalled) formatting, then immediately run the 'Repair Disk' tool on it to make sure the drive is being read and written correctly. Then performa PMU reset (instructions below) to ensure that the failure to boot from the external FW drive is not a simple matter of dropped FW port. On rebooting with your FW drive connected, hold the Option key down to see if the system then recognizes your external drive. If it does, select it and attempt to boot from it.
    With luck that will give you a working system, booted from your external, at which point I would then see if it's possible to clone your external to the new internal drive, rather than attempt a reinstall from the MacOS installer.
    On the face of it there should be no reason that would not work since by booting from the MacOS installer you basically show that the system is sound and the optical drive is working. By partitioning and formatting the internal drive and getting a clean bill of health from the repair disk tool, you show the drive and disk controller are OK. That doesn't leave much else to be at fault!

    anyone can help me with this?

    This is just a guess, and it may not work, but it won't make things worse.
    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ If you’re running Mac OS X 10.7 or later, open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the page that opens.
    Copy or drag – do not type – the line below into the window, then press return.
    defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL
    You can then quit Terminal.

  • There were errors installing the software  Os x disk 2

    Hey guys.
    I run an older version of os x (10.4.8) on a Macbook as I have an old version of pro tools that I won't run on anything newer. I havn't gotten round to updating pro tools.
    Yesterday, I tried to install the update for 10.4.11 since I'm not too bothered about pro tools anymore.
    It took around 2 hours, then at the end seemed to stop without any confirmation of it's success.
    After this, everything froze and I was forced to manually restart the macbook using the power button.
    When restarting, I got a kernel panic error which asked me to repeatedly start the system.
    Fed up with this, I decided to revert back to 10.4.8 by booting from the dvd, erasing the macbook harddrive and installing from scratch.
    Disk one went fine, but disk 2 hangs up when installing garage band instruments, then I get the message THERE WERE ERRORS INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE. PLEASE TRY AGAIN.
    I've tried this three times with no joy.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hi Ibin5, and a warm welcome to the forums!
    Could be many things, we should start with this...
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    *Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.*
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106214
    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
    It took around 2 hours, then at the end seemed to stop without any confirmation of it's success.
    Hmmm, that's too long, might see this...
    http://www.apple.com/support/macbook/hd/repairextension/
    Also, That second Disk thing happens frequently, the best way around it is to do a Custom install, and eliminate enough Printer Drivers, Languages, Fonts, and Applications you don't need... then it may skip #2 altogether.

  • Error - The software required for the ipod is not installed correctly.  Please reinstall itunes to install the required sotware

    When trying to load music from ITunes to my ipod I receive the error "The software required for the ipod is not installed correctly.  Please reinstall itunes to install the required sotware"
    What should I do to correct the error? 

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down the page in case one of them applies. The notes below the box include tips on removing troublesome components.
    The further information area has direct links to the current and recent builds in case you have problems downloading, need to revert to an older version or want to try the iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) release as a workaround for installation or performance issues, or compatibility with QuickTime or third party software.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there also links to backup and recovery advice should it be needed.
