I keep getting this message when trying to upgrade to Itunes 10.5.1
Driving me nuts trying to upgrade. What can I do to correct this?
"There is a problem with the Windows Installer package.

Yes, I had found a similar solution also.  I'm running XP Pro, SP3.  I went Control Panels/ Add-Remove programmes/apple software update/ change/ repair.  Then run the 10.5 exe.
While the programme updated from version 8 of iTunes, my new iTunes is now a mess.  Not all of my music was in the same folder previously but it all showed up on iTunes.  Now many albums have been left out, some have only a few tracks and some have two copies of some tracks as well as having other tracks missing.  I haven't begun to work on that.

  • I get this message when I try to open .pdf files in Mozilla: There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. If it is running, please exit and try again. (1014:1014)

    What can I do to get this to work?

    We were getting the same error on a Win 7 machine which had Acrobat 7 (running in compatability mode) and Reader X installed.  When the user was trying to open the link from an email the error 'There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat.....(0:521) would appear and the pdf would not load.
    Investigating the problem I can across an article to uncheck the option "Display PDF in browser" (in the application choose Edit -> Preferences -> Internet).  Undertaking this procedure in Acrobat Reader X however, I could not uncheck this and the path the app was showing was for Acrobat 7!?!
    Therefore, opened Acrobat 7 and undertook the same procedure.  Unchecked the "Display PDF in browser" (in the application choose Edit -> Preferences -> Internet) which I was able to do, saved and closed the application.
    Rechecked Acrobat X and the "Display PDF in browser" could be deselected and the path was now for ..\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe
    Retried the original email with the link to the pdf and it now opens without error.
    Not too sure if this will help but just thought I would share.

  • I keep getting this message when trying to sign into itunes... "We could not complete your iTunes Store request. The iTunes Store is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later."

    I have tried everything I can find online.
    Update iTunes to the latest version.
    If iTunes Store appears empty and only displays the message iTunes Store, follow these steps.
    Try the steps to troubleshoot iTunes Store connectivity in Windows.
    As with all firewalls not manufactured by Apple, you may need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. Follow these steps for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
    Try disabling any proxies built-in to Wndows. You should avoid proxies because they can cause issues.
    If you're receiving a specific error message, follow these steps.
    If the issue still persists, contact your Internet service provider and confirm that these ports and servers are enabled over your network.
    I also have tried flushing dns,making sure all services that are required are started (not 100% which it needs to be fair, I did have an issue earlier this month when i upgraded my ram from 2gb to 4gb and had to go into msconfig to untick the max memory setting so it used all 4 instead of the original 2gb... and that for some reason turned off a few services, bonjour service is 100% working, i checked that much, and the ipod service too) I also tried a system restore with no effect.
    I also did the microsoft fixit for the hosts file too...
    I have just purchased an ipad mini, brand new not second hand... and I want to be able to sync it, but without authorising the pc it wont let me. ANY help is appretiated. Thankyou.

  • I keep getting this message when trying to update to Itunes 10.5 "Errors occurred while installing the updates. If the problem persists, choose Tools Download Only and try installing manually".

    I tried going to Apples site and installing it manually and that leads to me getting the same error message. Please any help would be appreciated.

    Try updating your iTunes using an iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64Setup.exe) installer file downloaded from the Apple website:

    After reading all these posts, one by one did not resolve my problem until I got the very end.  Regardless of what step would resolve your problem, these are the steps I would recomment to everyone for a what seems to be a safe and fool-proof upgrade to iTunes 10.5.
    1. Stand alone upgrade to the latest Quicktime version
    2. Go to control panel and "change" then select repair to the following applications in the order specified by the post on Oct 27. (Notice I skipped Quicktime because it had been upgrade manually,and Bonjour did not have a "repair" option)
    iTunes; Apple Software Update: Mobile Device Support; Apple Applications Support
    Some of these applications may not appear if they do not apply to your configuration (no iPhone, or no iPad, or other apple devices).
    Once all updated, I did not need to restart nor launch any applications, I simply went straight into the 10.5 upgrade, and where it normally got stuck, this time the installation continued for a while longer until it completed successfully.
    Great work everyone who contributed!  Thank you very much!
