    Please sort out the V 11.1.4 problems as I cant get iTunes to work now. You need to have a new version asap

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.

  • Cant get Itunes to work or install

    I was listening to itunes a couple days ago, and my computer crashed and I had to do a hard reboot. Now Itunes wont open, so I tried to reinstall it and I get a message saying it cant find Itunes.msi. Any ideas?

  • I did the itunes update on my computer and how I cant get Itunes to work.

    I am upset, I did the typical update that I tunes gives you and now I can't get it to work at all. It says I need permission to use it, or that the moible system is not working which I am not sure what that means at all.

  • My itunes was working fine and I was using it yesterday  on my phoine and pc now i cant get itunes to work

    my Itunes stopped working  I used it since u did the phone update and it worked fine until last night  does anyone know what might have caused this to happen?

    Make sure the app is not running in the background - double click the Home key and see if you see the iTunes icon in the list at the bottom. Close it, and all of the other open apps by swiping up on the mini screen displaying right above the icon.
    Try again.
    If that doesn't work, reset your device (nothing will be lost): Hold down the Home and Power buttons at the same time and continue to hold them down until the Silver Apple appears. Once the Home screen redisplays, try again.

  • Cant get itunes to work

    I `m relatively new to the internet and ipods so i `m not the greatest technically minded person in the world when it comes to these things. My problem is that i have download Itunes 7.4 for my p.c. with windows X.P. yet every time i try to click on the windows installer icon on my desk top i keep getting the same message.
    {This installation package could not be opened. Verify that this package exists and that you can access it or contact the application vendor to be sure this is a valid windows installer package.}
    I've tried for hours on end to fix this but cant find a solution any help would be welcomed.

    seems there are also other problems with latest version of iTunes. When is APPLE/iTunes going to wake up and attend to these numerous tech problems encountered by their users? This is the only way we can get any assistance. All other methods I have tried, failed...

  • So i cant get itunes to work what do i do

    hey do you know how to download music without downloading the itunes to my computer?

    There is no way. Why can't you put iTunes on your computer?

  • I've changed my "My Music" folder and now I cant get iTunes to run!

    Ok, Maybe some has a fix for this - I am running Vista and I have moved my "My Music" folder from its original location to its own dedicated hard drive (F:). Now when I install and try to run any iTunes version I get the error "The folder iTunes cannot be found or created and is required. The Default location for this folder is inside the "Music" Folder." I have even gone so far as to create a Music folder under Users\"current user"\ . Does anyone have a workaround or fix to this - I will have to take this computer back if I cant get Itunes to work on it.

    IF you are able to get iTunes open you need to go into preferences and change the location of your music directory (Under Advanced) If you are unable to access iTunes you need to recreate the iTunes folder under my music... open up the directory on your F drive and copy the XML document. Place it into the iTunes directory under my music. Open that file up in an HTML editor and change the location of your files in the line that looks like this...
    file://localhost/C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/*You're Name*/My%20Documents/My%20Music/iTunes/iTunes%20Music/
    Change the C: to the F: and update the rest of the path to point to the right directory. I hope this helps!

  • Help.i cant get itunes to install

    i have been trying to install itunes and i keep getting error code 2738 come up when it is installing.i have tried doing what others have said but it still will not install.what can i do please.i have a new iphone and cant get it to work without itunes installed.thanks x

    When you say that you have tried what others have said, it doesn't help the person trying to help you. You need to say what you have tried, this saves time and avoids you being told to do something you have already tried.
    I haven't encountered this error number before, but according to the Microsoft list of installer errors is means:
    "Could not access VBScript run time for custom action"
    It's just a guess, but the following might help.
    Type cmd into your search box, cmd should come up under programs. Run it with "Run as Administrator".
    Paste in the following line:
    regsvr32 scrrun.dll
    If that doesn't work, try the following:
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll

  • Cant get itunes to sync iphone or ipad or ipod

    cant get itunes to sync with iphone or other devices?

    I did that and the device driver is correct, at least there is no error triangle there. I have no third party software that should interfere, so I'm back to square one. When I plug the device in to the PC with the USB the device shows up in itunes. When I remover the USB the device disappears, so it is not finding it wirelessly. I have checked and unchecked the sync this device over wifi and reapplied the settings and still it won't hold. I don't know what else to do. Is Apple going to release a fix for this?
    When I was going thru the steps to uninstall and reinstall itunes, the apple device support program would not uninstall so I skipped it and went on. Itunes works but not wireless. Would that make a difference?
    This is frustrating that Apple would release something so flawed. Was this never tested? Seems so simple and so basic.

  • Trying to get iTunes to work on an external drive.  Help?

    Okay, so my computer's main hard drive is pretty full, so I've been moving all my music to an external drive. The issue I'm having is that I can't get iTunes to work on that drive. I know I'm probably not phrasing this very clearly, sorry. But anyway. I've installed iTunes on the external drive, and I've moved all my music to that drive. However, the iTunes music folder is still in My Music, and iTunes "can't find" any of the music on my external drive unless I specifically go and find them.Can I tell iTunes to look at this other folder for its default library or something? Thanks for your help.
