Unable to download itunes 10.6.1

I have iTunes 10.6.0.40 on Windows XP Pro SP3 32 bit. Itunes is telling me that there is an update available to 10.6.1. I tell it to update, I am taken to the Apple download page for iTunes 10.6. I download the file to my computer. When I run the downloaded file, my only option is to repair or remove the software. I have tried the repair option, and am still on 10.6.0.40. I right clicked on the new iTunesSetup.exe. Selected properties and then looked at the version tab and it says the version is 10.6.0.40. I have cleared my history, cookies, temp Internet files, reloaded the download page numerous times, tried IE8 and Firefox but every time I download I get the 10.6.0.40 setup file. I would like to get the 10.6.1 to resolves bugs and to stop iTunes from nagging me about the update. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry for the delay bnoir but "life" intervened.
No problem at all, Pamela. I've heard of these things called "lives", and on the whole I believe I approve of them.
Sorry to hear about the Windows reinstall. Fingers crossed in NZ for a resolution.

    Please!
    Thanks!

    If anyone is reading this still looking for what caused the issue and how to fix it here is what I discovered.
    The antivirus program our company uses, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, was causing some of the PDF files not to open. After troubleshooting the different modules and settings the culprit was..
    Scan SSL in Privacy Control Settings. Turning it OFF solved the problem and all the PDF files that previously would not open now open just fine. This issue has been sent to Bitdefender for them to review. If you use a different antivirus program and are having this issue try locating the Scan SSL setting and see if turning it off solves the problem.

  • I am unable to download iTunes (10.5.2).

    I am unable to download iTunes (10.5.2).
    When I attempt to download I get an error message which reads:
    "Apple Software Update
    Errors occured while installing the updates. If the problem persists, choose Tools>Download Only and try installing manually."
    I have done the Tools>Download Only and tried installing manually. When I do this procedure I get an error message which reads:
    "Apple Software Update
    iTunes has an invalid signature. The download has been removed."
    I went to the "Trouble installing iTunes or Quicktime for Windows" help section and deleted Temp folder and restarted the computer, but I am getting all the same error messages.
    I hesitate to uninstall iTunes and reinstall because I am afraid that I will loose all of my music, podcasts and pictures.
    My iTunes also will not download my most recent podcasts.
    Can you tell me what to do to correct these problems?

    I never had to uninstall iTunes to reinstall a new version, that included 10.5.  What happens when you try to download iTunes 10.5?
    How are you trying to download it? From the Apple website or the iTunes/Apple software updater?

  • Unable to download iTunes 10.7 on my Macbook (using OSX 10.5.8). Thx

    Unable to download iTunes 10.7 on my Macbook, hence, cannot use my iphone 5. How could I upgrade my OSX?( apart from buying a new Macbook, thx)

    You need OSX 10.6.8 at least.  Read the link below on getting 10.6 at least, then update online to 10.6.8.  Depending upon your model computer you might be able to go beyond 10.6.
    Kappy 08/2012 post on upgrading to Snow Leopard, then Lion or Mountain Lion -  https://discussions.apple.com/message/19401628 - including how to get Snow Leopard and Lion since Apple removed them from their online store. 
    In the future do not buy new devices until you are sure you can run them on your computer.  Read the 8 point medium gray print on a light gray background Apple uses to tell you on each box what system requirements are for each device.

    iOS 6 (which runs on the iPhone 5) requires iTunes 10.7, which requires OS X 10.6.8 or higher.

  • Unable to download itunes using firefox on windows 7

    I'm using windows 7 and when I click the download link on http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ it brings up the prompt to save and I click save but there is no download performed - the file does not exist and is not listed in the "Downloads" drop down option.
    Apple assumes it's downloaded http://www.apple.com/confirm/itunes/thankyou.html and states "Now that you’ve downloaded iTunes, you’re just a few steps away from starting a digital entertainment collection and enjoying it on your Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, or iPod."
    HELLO the download did not occur.
    Most site will offer a link that states - if your download did not begin click here and have a means to start it again but not Apple they are sure it's done.
    Any one out there know what's wrong with the download page or a way to get iTunes from another source on apple's site?
    -edit moments later
    That "thankyou.html" page loading before the end of me clicking save and selecting where it's saving was causing the download to not initiate properly
    I saved it as quickly as I could and surprisingly the download succeeded to begin.
    Apple website developers should be notified of that error/behavior so it can be fixed - simply don't load the thankyou.html page until the install is completed maybe

    See my response in the I am unable to download iTunes with Windows XP using firefox?  I am told it's a binary file and tells me to "save" it.  Once downloaded it does not open up.  Anyone have any ideas why? thread.

  • I am unable to download itunes on 32 bit Vista home premium

    I had an older version 9 of Itunes on my Vista 32 bit home premium windows pc and has acquired the latest ios 6 Ipod touch but Itunes dows not recognise it and I was unable to sync it. The itouch driver installed on pc and a message comes comes up shortly that Ipod touch need to download Itunes versin 6.3,1 but i am unable to dowanload it onto Ipod touch itself as it needs to be sync with Itune on PC, but it does not recognise devices. I tried installing update but it does not want to complete and I followed online instruction to uninstall all Itunes and related software which i had done but now I am unable to download Itunes at all. Is there anyone who has a solution to this problem?

    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.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.

  • New laptop with windows.8.1 and i am unable to download itunes can you help, ps in idiot proof language thks

    I have purchased new lap top and downloaded windows.8..1 but i am unable to download itunes, it keeps coming up as unsucessful. I am a bit thick when it comes to technology so any step by step insturctions would be good. Please help thanks

    I'm having the same problem. I had previously downloaded an earlier version but it's apparently too old to allow me to activate my new iPhone. I tried disabling Download Manager (holding down the shift key); it was disabled but I still got the immediate "Thank You" without the new version being downloaded. Any suggestions? Anyone using Vista able to download this version?

    I am unable to download iTunes on my second Windows 8 computer (64 bit). I got it fine on my first one and have used it quite a bit. After downloading the program and installing it on the second computer, I keep getting this error message: "Apple Mobile Device Failed to Start." This happens when when my IPhone 5c is connected via Wi-Fi and I have clicked on "Trust This Computer." (I have tried to install several times-- It gets hung up when it reaches"Starting Services.")

    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
    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.
    See also HT1925: Removing and Reinstalling iTunes for Windows XP or HT1923: Removing and reinstalling iTunes for Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
    Should you get the error iTunes.exe - Entry Point Not Found after the above reinstall then copy QTMovieWin.dll from:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support
    and paste into:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes
    The above paths would be for a 64-bit machine. Hopefully the same fix with the " (x86)" omitted would work on 32-bit systems with the same error.

    when i try to download itunes  i get a message that says thanks for downloading itunes. But it does so instantly and there is no download for me to install
    I'd first try downloading an installer from the Apple website using a different web browser:

    If you use Firefox instead of IE for the download (or vice versa), do you get a working installer?
