Today, I got a "update iTunes and tonight, I can't access my iTunes. I uninstalled and reinstalled and the error message reads: iTunesexe-unable to locate component. App has failed to start due to MSVCR80.dll was not found: Reinstall may fix" but hasn't.

I received an iTunes update today and updates files. Tonight, I couldn't acces my iTunes. I uninstalled and reinstalled and still getting same error message: iTunes exe unable to locate component. This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.DLL was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.  I've done it several times and still get the error.  I'm fearful I have lost all my music.  What can I do?

  • Application has failed to start b/c qtcf,dll was not found

    I recently had my computer serviced by the Geek squad for virus removal, I tried to use itunes and connect my ipod and I keep getting this message by: itunesHelper.exe- unable to locate component. "This application has failed to start because QTFC.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I have tried to install Itunes and quick time player, but the same error pops up and I can't close the tab. Any suggestions?

    QTCF.dll
    Let's doublecheck on the current locations of that dll.
    Go "Start > Search" and then do an all files and folders search on QTCF.dll. In "More advanced options", make sure the following items are all checked:
    *Search System folders*
    *Search hidden files and folders*
    *Search subfolders*
    What QTCF.dll files do you find, and what are their file locations?

    ANyone got any help with this issue on my Laptop? 
    Worked fine yesterday and today I keep getting this pop up.  I've deleted and downloaded itunes again (twice) and clicked the repair button with no luck.
    Help!

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall press on)
    Bonjour
    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.

  • HT1926 My itunes won't open because it says "This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem" Can someone help? I don't want to delete it altogether due to needing the phone backup

    I was given notification to upload the latest version of itunes recently, so I clicked installed. However it has since corrupted my itunes and I get the error message:
    "This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem".
    In poor timing, I have also accidently damaged my phone and have a new one to restore it to an old back up.
    It is because of this I am reluctant to completely delete itunes off my computer and start again for fear of losing my back ups.
    Is there another way to fix iTunes so I can open it again?
    Thanks

  • Updating iTunes with error message "this application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found"?

    After updating iTunes, has anyone got the message "this application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." message and "iTunes was not installed correctly. Please re-install iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126)"?  I've tried everything from un-installing and re-installing iTunes to deleting the SC Info. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Click here and follow the instructions. You may need to completely remove and reinstall iTunes and all related components, or run the process multiple times; this won't normally affect its library, but that should be backed up anyway.

  • This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

    I recently tried to download the latest version of iTunes, but an error occured during the process. It was recommended that i reinstall iTunes to attempt to correct that problem. After I attempted to reinstall, an error came up with the title "iTunes.exe - Unable to locate component." the body of the error message read "This application  has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem." When I click "Ok", another error message pops-up reading "iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126)". I tried reinstalling iTunes 3 times now, each time with the same result. What is going wrong, and what do I need to do?

    Kappy, I completely overlooked your original response due to it's small, one line nature and poor UX design of the area surrounding the message area.
    Upon following the complete instructions linked from the link you posted (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US), my first attempt resulted in everything being installed except for iTunes. So trying yet again.
    I do have Safari for Windows Vista installed, which is why I could not delete everything in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\ folder. I'm guessing this is Apple's way of completely removing Safari Win from history (there's always an under-the-table reason when something like this happens with Apple installs, they just won't say it publicly). Uninstalling Safari. Uninstalling Safari removes the remaining "Internet" files from C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\
    Uninstalling iCloud. Uninstalling MobileMe Control Panel that was never used. That leaves only QuickTime installed as an Apple product on my machine.
    Just for the record, I did not have this folder: C:\Program Files\iPod\
    Emptied the Recycling Bin.
    Shut down and fresh start-up.
    Install attempt again: results in the installer saying something interrupted it (no other programs open)
    Installing again immediately after error: Success
    Clearly there are issues with this installer.
    A pop-up shows up with "The registry settings used by the iTunes drives for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burining software. Please reinstall iTunes"
    No other CD burning software installed other than what came pre-installed by Gateway and a install of Windows Vista Pro (or whatever the top expensive one was called).
    iTunes launched. iTunes Library, items like Movies & Music, and playlists are still intact and usable.
    Good thing I don't have these issues on my Macs (ahem, which is why these errors are allowed to persist by Apple to discourage Microsoft/Windows/PC use and purchase, all about the money and Apple has become the non-caring giant it once sought to overthrow as the underdog, miss those days).
    Thanks Kappy. Thanks for the time suck Apple.

    This is a Windows side-by-side issue not a JNI issue. As such it doesn't really
    belong in this forum except as an object lesson to people who create JNI's.
    I had these issues when I moved to Visual Studio 2005 - which, oddly enough,
    was the version of the IDE where SxS support was not only introduced, but
    enforced.
    The fact that you tried to put a SxS folder in the PATH tells me you know
    nothing about how SxS and manifests works. You need to learn about these
    things and then your problems will become blushingly obvious.
    The Binless.dll manifest must be embedded, and it must contain dependency
    entries that specify the SxS requirements, including the version(s) of the
    dependent libraries. Secondly, the specific version of the libraries must be
    installed on the target system.
    My guess is your manifest specifies a CRT version that's not installed on your
    system and that is why the system is complaining. Look for the
    Binless.dll.intermediate.manifest file. It will tell you what your dll expects.
    Here's an example of a dll (debug version) manifest:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='yes'?>
    <assembly xmlns='urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1' manifestVersion='1.0'>
      <trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">

  • My i tunes is not working anymore. it says the application failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found. I have tried re-installing the program but it doesn't work.

    Hello,
    Yesterday I tried to get onto iTunes and was unable to. I keep getting this message:
    Itunes.exe - Unable to locate component.
    This application has failed to start because MSVCR80.dll was not found.
    Re-installing the application may fix this problem.
    I have tried to uninstall and re-install the program several times but cannot get it to work. Now I get this message:
    iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes.
    Error 7 (Windows error 126)
    I have tried to do what I can but am not really iTunes savy and would like to get this issue resolved. Can anyone help me?
    THANK YOU!!
