Why does windows have 64-bit iTunes but not mac?

I can't believe it. I searched the archives here and someone said because most people don't have 64-bit compatible machines. Then why does Windows get separate versions but not the native OS?
I'm running audio hardware optimized for 64-bit (drivers) but the sound quality of iTunes is worse in 64-bit than in 32-bit.
Anyone have any knowledge when 64-bit is going to be released?

iTunes is only 32 bit for Windows OS and Mac OS.
The 64bit version for Windows simply includes 64 bit drivers. The application itself is only 32 bit.

  • Why does goolgeearth work with Safari & Chrome but not Firefox

    When in firefox using Google maps and click on "EARTH" I receive a window indicating that to use 3D I need to install 21.0 Google Earth Plug-in with a "Download" option to click on. Note: Firefox 21.0 and MAC OS 10.7.5 have all current software updates installed. Safari & Chrome do not request for any plug-ins and 3D Earth option works fine. ANY HELP?
    PS. my MAC does have an Intel HD Graphics 3000 installed but my MAC, Safari & Chrome work fine.

    JKELLETT, That initially happen to me also. When you go to dolinsky296's suggested website https://www.google.com/earth/explore/products/plugin.html I saw "Download plug-in" box in the middle of the globe. When I click it the download executed but the plug-in never got installed. Then I clicked on "Download Google Earth" in the ''upper right corner'' of the website and life was good. Google Earth now works in Firefox.

  • Why does Mail open in guest account but not my account since upgrade to Mavericks?

    I've read a lot of threads but not found anything that works for me. The history is this:
    I've upgraded to Mavericks 10.9.2. Since then, Mail won't open in my own user account. I only get a very brief error message:
    Process:   
    Mail [1448]
    Path:       
    /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/MacOS/Mail
    Identifier: 
    com.apple.mail
    Version:   
    7.2 (1874)
    Build Info: 
    Mail-1874000000000000~1
    Code Type: 
    X86-64 (Native)
    Parent Process:  launchd [157]
    Responsible:
    Mail [1448]
    User ID:   
    I have gone to user/Library/Mail and deleted the contents of the folder Mailboxes + all the other mailboxes. No change - Mail still won't open.
    If I switch user accounts to guest user, Mail opens normally (sets up email accounts etc).
    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Rebooted in safe mode, repaired disc permissions, rebooted (again in safe mode) but no difference.
    There was a bit more detail I could / should have added.
    1) Before it crashes, Mail says it is Upgrading your Mail database.
    2) I downloaded Mail update but Installer said none of the drives were compatible. (Anyway Mail works fine in Guest Account)
    3) I've been through all the tips on this post https://discussions.apple.com/message/23490745#23490745http://
    and
    looked at Internet accounts in Preferences and none of my email accounts is checked with Mail. It asks for a password for each one but when I provide it I get the message Unable to verify account name or password. And if I try and uncheck iCloud with Mail I get the message that I need to do that from within Mail. (Obviously not possible until I can open Mail).
    In Terminal tried defaults delete com.apple.mail ColorQuoterColorList but got the message that it hadn't been done.
    Tried to find Envelope.x.x files as per this fix:     Final solution: Go into ~Library/Mail/V2/Mailboxes > Delete all mailboxes. Then go to ~Library/Mail/V2/Maildata and delete 3 or more "Envelope.x.x" files > Restart Mail, and enjoy your success.     but don't have a V2 folder nor Envelope.x.x files. I do have Envelope Index file and Envelope Index - journal
    I don't suspect 3rd party applications because I think they are all available in the Guest Account aren't they?
    Many thanks for your reply though. Any more ideas?

  • Why does the counter work in MAX, but not Labview?

    Please help, I have been away from Labview for over 3 months, and I am quite rusty....
    Last year, I successfully configured NI9401 to measure period (seconds) by counting the rising edges of my sensor signal.  Since then, I have aquired a new PC, and loaded all my software into it, including the Labview VI's that successfully worked on the old computer.
    I can see the digital signal using MAX and the test panel for the NI9401, so, I know my wiring and my TTL signal is OK, but, when I try to run the attached VI, nothing happens except the error below..  How do I tell this VI to look for the signal on MOD3/CTR0 and channel 14?
    Thanks. I am sure it is a small adjustment...this worked fine a few months ago...not sure what is wrong now.
    Thanks,
    Dave
    Solved!

    OK, now.  Resolved the issue. The vi is fine, but, some shaky wires were identified...worked in MAX but not in the vi.  Now that the connections have been tightened up, it works for both.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Why does starting and shutting down iTunes on my Mac stop movie from playing?

    Every time I start or shut down iTunes on my Mac, the movie I'm watching on my Apple TV stops playing and goes back to the menu.  It also loses the spot in the movie, so I have to fast forward to my spot.  Extremely annoying.  EVERY TIME.

    Unless it is actually associated with something not working, it isn't a problem. I've always seen it on my machine, which works perfectly and has done so for 2.5 years now.

  • Why do books sort correctly in iTunes but not in iBooks?

    I've filled in all necessary info on the sorting tab and, while all my books sort perfectly in iTunes, on syncing my iPhone and iPad, iBooks does not display the books in the correct order no matter what selections are made.
    My intent is to have the books in my library, be grouped together by series and displayed in the correct order one would read the series.  I'm using Sort Name with a series name and series position designation number along with Sort Author as Last, First.  But no luck.  I've tried reading through other threads and have yet to come upon a fix. Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

  • HT4059 why can you browse, and buys books from itunes but not read them on my iMac?  Pretty lame I think. my kindle show up across all my computers, iPhones and Android devices no problem.

    just wondering why you can browse, buy on itunes but not read on an imac. My kindle apps work on the imac, ipod, asus netbook, iphone and android devices.  Why not ibooks on imac?

    "just wondering why you can browse, buy on itunes but not read on an imac. "
    Because Apple does not make an ibook reader for computers.

  • I have a sony laptop with windows 7 (64 bit) which I upgraded to windows 8 64 bit. But the machine had to be formatted and this time loaded windows 8 32 bit. Now I have tried itunes for 32bit win 8 as well as for 64bit win 8 but none is getting installed

    I have a sony laptop with window 7 64 bit initially which I upgraded to windows 8 64 bit. But due to formatting later, I had to reinstall the windows and this time I installed windows 8 32 bit. Now I have tried installing iTunes for 64 bit windows 8 as well as 32 bit Windows 8 but none of them is getting installed. The message I get is, "this programme is not compatible for your pc" (or words to that affect since I dont remember the exact words but this is the meaning).
    Can some body send me the link to the right file please. I need iTunes to transfer files from my iPod and iPhone to my laptop.

    It seems I have solved my own problem . . . well hopefully !!   ;-)
    I was using a 'non' Apple cable. When I swithced to using the stock cable that came with my iPhone, iTunes can now see that I have a 'Device' and identifies it correctly as my iPhone.
    Hopefully this may help others . . . ?
