When i try to install i tunes it goes so far down the installation process then i get a message ' could not access network location %APPDATA%\.  Can any one help.

When i try to install i tunes, it goes so far down the installation process and then comes up with a message ' could not access network location %APPDATA%\.  I then retry and it comes up with the same message.
It also tells me i tunes needs 'Quick Time' to support the software.  I have downloaded Quicktime from i tunes seperately and gone through the whole process again, only to get the same message.
Can anyone please help?

These kind of messages can often be cleared by using the Microsoft Installer cleanup Utility.
Here is a method for cleanup of your old iTunes installation and reinstall.
== uninstall with cleanup ==
Download a fresh copy of iTunes and the stand alone version of Quicktime (the one without iTunes)
http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
Save the files on your PC.
Download and install Microsoft Installer cleanup utility, there are instructions on the page as well as the download. Note that what you download is the installer not the program – you have to run it to install the program. The installer doesn't give any message to confirm the installation.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/
(To run the program – All Programs>>Windows Install)
Now use the following method to remove iTunes and its components:
XP
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925
Vista or Win 7
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1923
*If you hit a problem with one of the uninstalls don't worry*, carry on with the deleting of files and folders as directed in the method.
When you get to deleting Quicktime files in the system32 folder as advised in the method, you can delete any file or folder with Quicktime in the name.
Restart your PC.
Run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. (Start > All Programs > Windows Install Clean Up)
Remove any references you find to the programs you removed - strictly speaking you only need to worry about those programs where the uninstall failed.
If you don’t see an entry for one of the programs that did not uninstall, look out for blank entries or numeric entries that look like version numbers e.g. 7.x for Quicktime or 1.x for Bonjour.
restart your PC
Install the stand alone Quicktime and check that it works.
If it does, install iTunes.

  • ITunes unable to install? - Could not access network location %APPDATA%/.

    Okay, I received a never used iPod Nano
    (Model MC034LL ,Version 1.0. 2 PC, it looks like this http://www.iphonemag.ch/wp-content/uploa…
    for Christmas this year, however; I'm having some trouble installing iTunes.
    I have already downloaded iTunes, but installing seems to be the problem.
    The 'iTunesSetup' icon appears on my desktop and I double-clicked it to begin the installing process.
    When I do so, it says
    "Gathering required information... Status: Computing Space Requirements"
    after a few seconds it says, "Could not access network location %APPDATA%/."
    As soon as I click 'retry' it says the same thing.
    If I press cancel, the same message pops up and then it says,
    "iTunes Installer Completed
    The installer encountered errors before iTunes could be configured.
    Your system has not been modified To retry these operations at a later time, please run the installer again.
    Click exit to finish the installer"
    I tried the help page for iTunes, but noting seemed helpful.

  • ITunes will not install, error message "could not access network location"

    I just got a new iPod Classic for Christmas but I have an older Mac so I was going to use an extra PC that we have laying around the house but every time I try to install iTunes, I get this Error:
    Could not access network location \\S090100\d$\Data.Backup\C09010009-FDR\My Documents\My Pictures\.
    It does not have Error 1606 anywhere on it and it asks me if I want to Retry or Cancel. I have tried EVERYTHING, please help!!

    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 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 are also links to backup and recovery advice should it be needed.

    Similar problem..."Could not access network location ." went through all the microsoft repairs for a 1606 error. No resolve. My itunes used to work perfectly then when I went through an itunes initiated update, then my itunes would bring up the error whenever I tried to update. I uninstalled itunes then tried to reinstall without any success. Still get the error. And now I dont have itunes. Has anyone figured this out yet or do I need to abandon and go to droid?
