Locked iTunes folder & 'AppleSyncNotifier.exe – Entry Point Not Found'

Below message seen on log in on a Windows 7 laptop, even after a full reinstall.:
"AppleSyncNotifier.exe – Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point xmlTextReaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll"
In case it's related, soon after, when trying to run iTunes, it failed with a 'no such .exe' type message. Itunes.exe had gone.
After saving the user iTunes library tree, I installed a fresh uptodate iTunes which failed because one of the iTunes subfolders, iTunes.Resources, would not let itself be deleted, not even when on the Administrator account.  Solved this by installing in a slightly-differently named iTunes folder, of course.
How the above DLL survived the reinstall, I don't know.  Is there any brutish way that I can nuke the original iTunes folder's remains?

I'd first try uninstalling and reinstalling your MobileMe control panel.

  • When I start my computer I get a "AppleSyncNotifier.exe Entry Point Not Found message.  I also get an error message when trying to sync with iTunes that a backup session cannot be started.  How do I fix this?

    In the last few days when I start my computer, I get a box that opens with "AppleSyncNotifier.exe" Entry Point Not Found in the title.
    It says:  "The procedure entry point sqlite3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQlite3.dll.
    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes and still get an error message when trying to sync my phone with iTunes
    "iTunes could not back up iPhone ####, because a session could not be started with the iPhone."
    The last time I tried to sync my phone (iPhone 3G S) with iTunes, everything seemed to freeze up at Stage 4 of the sync process. 
    Any advice????

    With Windows Explorer, navigate to your C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support folder.
    Copy the SQLite3.dll that you should find there, navigate to the nearby Mobile Device Support folder, and Paste it in there also.
    Reboot and see if all is well
    In case that your OS is Windows 7 (64 bit)
    1. Open windows explorer, go to location C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support
    2. Copy file "SQLite3.dll"
    3. Open new windows explorer, to to location C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support
    4. Paste file "SQLite3.dll" to the location.
    5. Reboot your computer, it should not display that message, it should be clear.

  • After installing the current version of iTunes, I get an AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found error. It says "The procedure entry point sqlite3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQLite3.dll."

    After installing the current version of iTunes, I get an AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found error. It says "The procedure entry point sqlite3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQLite3.dll." Kindly advice a process to get rid of this error, without losing my files on the iTunes.

    Hi, I get the same error EVERY time iTunes updates.
    I have to do the fix that is suggested in this topic (cut and paste the sqlite3.dll)
    My Question:
    Since this happens every time iTunes updates...... Do I have to remove SQlite3.dll from the "apple application support" folder....... so that the sqlite3.dll is only located in the "mobile device support" folder?????
    It is getting really annoying to have to do the "cut and paste" fix every time iTunes updates.
    Thank You,
    Steve

  • After downloading the latest version of iTunes and updating my iPhone everytime I turn on my computer I get a message that reads: AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found. Does anybody know what this means?

    After downloading the latest version of iTunes and updating my iPhone, everytime I turn on my computer I receive a message that reads: "AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point sqlite3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamic link library SQlite.dll" Help! Does anybody know what this means and how I can fix it? Thanks.

    Yes.  I just solved the problem on my PC.  Here goes...
    Issue:  My Windows7 computer was producing the pop up box with the error text as you described.
    The Problem: You have another application on your computer that uses the like named .DLL file... in this case a DLL supporting SQLite on your local PC.
    Solution: 
    1.  You need to use the Windows File search feature to look for the name "SQLite".  This will quickly locate the offending DLL in the other application.
    2. Decide which program you like the most, in my case "Mobile Me", and uninstall the offending application.
    3.  Uninstall Mobile Me.
    4.  Restart your PC.
    5.  Reinstall Mobile Me.
    6.  Mobile Me should sync at this point, but if not, restart the PC once again.
    In my case, the offending program was my Aptana Studio development application.  I had recently the SQLite3 database to my Ruby On Rails configuration...
    This is where the file was located:
    C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Aptana Studio 2.0\plugins\com.aptana.radrails.sqlite3.win32_3.5.7.1278709071\vendor\SQLite3.d ll
    I hope this helps,

  • TS1286 At my PC startup, I get an error message "AppleSyncNotifier.exe--Entry Point Not Found"  My iPhone now doesn't show up as a Device in either iTunes or My Computer on my PC. I've uninstalled/ reinstalled iTunes & run diagnostics-no luck. Ideas?

    At my PC startup, I get an error message "AppleSyncNotifier.exe--Entry Point Not Found"  My iPhone now doesn't show up as a Device in either iTunes or My Computer on my PC. I've uninstalled/ reinstalled iTunes & run diagnostics-no luck. Ideas?

    I think my problem is fixed now.
    For the fun of it, I reinstalled iTunes 9.2.1 today (using the exact same installer as I did yesterday), but this time I didn't uninstall iTunes first. As expected, iTunes recognized my iPhone (as I expected it to, until my next reboot).
    A few minutes later, Software Update showed up and among the updates is "iPhone SDK Compatibility Update". The description indicates that installing this should fix an issue where iPhones and iPod touches aren't recognized by iTunes. Isn't that interesting?
    I installed that update and most of the others waiting for me (including Java, Safari 5.0.1, and a few others - not 10.6.4 though, due to the issues with nVidia graphics cards). After the reboot, I started iTunes, and it saw my iPhone!
    So, if you're having this same problem, I'd recommend tracking down this update and see if that does the trick for you. Hopefully it will.

  • Why is it that every udate of my iPhone software do I get the error message on my laptop: AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found The procedure enrty point xmlTextReaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll

    Each time I update the software on my iPhone4 I get the following error message on my lap top: AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found The procedure enrty point xmlTextReaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll
    I go on line to find a solution, but it must be a common problem, why has apple not corrected yet?

    This is the fix I got from discussions and it worked for me.  It is copied below.  I just did the manual fix which I have underlined. Good luck! Regards, Belle.
    This can occur because libmxl2.dll is not in your C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support folder.
    There have been some issues with this and other dlls not being in the right place (or not being everywhere they should be) since the 10.3.1.55 iTunes update.
    However, I note that the 10.4 iTunes update is now out - surprisingly quickly - so try installing that, rebooting, and see if your issue is solved.
    If it isn't, though, here's the manual fix:-
    With Windows Explorer, navigate to your C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support folder.
    Copy the libmxl2.dll that you should find there, navigate to the nearby Mobile Device Support folder, and Paste it in there also.
    Reboot and see if all is well.
    I actually had the issue with SQLite3.dll, and the above fix worked for me (I found it in an April 2010 posting!).
    I passed on the fix as above for the similar issue with libmxl2.dll to someone who had exactly your problem, and he reported that it fixed it for him.

  • When I start my computer the following error: AppleSyncNotifier.exe Entry Point Not Found Procedure entry point xmlTextReaderName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll

    After updating to iTunes version 10.5, every time I start the computer the following error message appears: AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found. Procedure entry point xmlTextReaderName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll? Please help

    Thank you Allan123.
    I have used iTunes 10.5.1 for a while without any problem but the other day I installed an application that wanted to restart my computer and iTunes did probably not shut down properly which probably caused the problems. I had to search for libxml2.dll though. Two other programs on my PC used a with the same name but I copied the one from the an Apple folder of course and pasted it where u suggested and after that everything was fine. I have no idea why this problem really occured without any real reason. But thanks for the solution!

    I have a PC computer and an i-phone 4S.  I set up an i-tunes acct online w/ icloud.  After a recent update my PC started receiving an error message on start up.  It says "AppleSyncNotifier.exe - Entry Point Not Found".  It also says, " The procedure entry point smlTextreaderConstName could not be located in the dynamic link library libxml2.dll".  I click on OK and it moves on.  It doesn't seem to affect my computer, but it's annoying.  Any ideas on correcting this?

    UPDATE - (Made a second post so it'd be clearer)
    I uninstalled Office 2003, then iTunes, then all of the associated software (Mobile Device Support, Apple Update, Quicktime, EVERYTHING)
    Reinstalled Office 2003, then Office 2003's Service Pack 3, then all Microsoft Updates for Office 2003. Then I configured a blank Outlook profile, no data other than the IMAP info for my .Mac/Me account. Then I downloaded (didn't used my existing copy) of iTunes 7.7 and reinstalled. Sync'd phone. Changed MobileMe settings. Told it to sync contacts and calendar with Outlook. It warned me because it was the first sync. Told it to take ALL of the MobileMe data and replace the data on the computer (which was blank.) NOTHING showed up in Outlook. When I tell it to sync Contacts with the Windows Address Book, it works fine.
    In Conclusion, it still won't sync with Outlook, when it's set to Sync with Outlook I still get the annoying MAPI errors. So I switched to to Sync the Contacts with the Windows Address Book, and I'm backing up my WAB file now with my nightly backups.
    I suppose we'll see if it gets fixed when I format/reinstall on Vista Ultimate in the next month or two. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm open and willing to try them.
    On a completely unproductive note: Despite my love for Exchange, I hate MAPI.

  • When starting my computer I get the error message "AppleSyncNotifier.exe Entry point not found. this has only appeared since my last upgrade.

    Since recently upgrading to the latest ITunes,on start up I get an error message:
    "AppleSyncNotifier.exe Entry point not found .

    Any body come across this? Any solutions? 

    Doublechecking, Dad:
    I have also reloaded all other iTunes software.
    Did you use the following document as a guide?

    (If we're looking at program file damage down in Apple Application Support or Apple Mobile Device Support, the 2. Verify iTunes and related components are completely uninstalled section is very important.)
