  • When installing itunes 10 uding windows xp I get the following error: "There is a problem with this Windows Installerpackage. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your sipport personnel or package vendor." - any ideas?

    When downloading itunes 10 in windows xp, I get the following error "There is a problem with this Windoes Installer package. Aprogram run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor." - any ideas on how to proceed?

    using MSICUU2.exe didn't help me.  But,  the new replacement app did:
      http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall
    I fixed my problem like this:
    Here's the deal - 
    1.  can you install itunes via the APPLE SOFTWARE updater?
    I couldn't  so I downloaded ITUNES and tried to install it that way.   Hence  I got the same error hang as you.  Nothing worked,  (Multiple attempts at uninstall reinstall,  stopping of Services,  Reg cleaners  etc..)
    2.  If answer is NO to #1 you must fixe the APPLE SOFTWARE UPDATE Program. 
    OK  so I couldn't find a Download for this.   But:  if you have WINRAR,  open the ITUNES.EXE and extract the APPLESOFTWAREUPDATE.MSI file.  Execute the APPLESOFTWAREUPDATE.MSI separately.   And you will not be able to install it and have a similar issue as per your Itunes install.   This of course leads you to believe that the Itunes.exe  install is also installing all of these components including the applesoftwareupdate silently.   It must BOMB at that portion of the install and you are done. 
    3.  Your goal now is to get the applesoftwareupdate installed.   How do you do this.  Well -  here is what I did.
      a.  downloaded and RUN a PC  Installer FIX it tool from Microsoft.  This is a replacement for the older MSI fixer they used to use.
      http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall
    b. It will list programs to attempt to fix.
      choose  AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi
    c. Once it is done,  then reinstall apple program updater using
    AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi
    Finally it should install since the Microsoft tool appraently fixed corrupted installation files in your registry for this application.
    (Please note:  that I also disabled any apple related services such as BONJOUR or IPOD DEvice RUN:  services.msc to get there -  although this man not be necesarry.)
    Hence Launch this APPLE UPDATE SOFTWARE (Click the ICON in your Start menu)  it should list ITUNES
    select ITUNES from here and it will update.
    KEY HERE is to ONLY UPDATE APPLE Stuff via the APPLE SOFTWARE UPDATE program.  If that program is not working fix it.  Then Bingo.
    I am sorry to see folks having this problem for weeks.  
    APPLE,   Spread the word.  PC's can get corruption in the registry on your product should the update be stopped or computer shut off during an update.  etc...   Please improve your software updater program to check for invalid registry upon launching the app.  This will prevent people thinking it is an APPLE issue.  It appears to be a problem on your PC's registry settings for the APPLE Software update.

    Ok, Below is what worked for me somewhat. 
    Okay ... try downloading and saving a copy of the iTunesSetup.exe to your PC from the Apple website:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    Now download a trial version of WinRAR:
    http://www.rarlab.com/download.php
    Open the iTunesSetup.exe with WinRAR, and try to run the standalone install of Apple Application Support from the AppleApplicationSupport.msi you find in there.
    It works now BUT there are still problems.  It is not allowing or recognizing my Cd/DVD player and i CANT burn.  Looking still for this fix.

  • Am getting the following message when trying to download latest upgrade. "a problem with Windows Installer Package, a program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected" Upgrade did not happen. Any suggestions ?

    Am getting a message when downloading latest iTunes upgrade:
    "There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package.
    A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected"
    It doesn't give me any specific information about what or where the problem is.
    Any Suggestions

    Repair your Apple Software Update.
    Go to START/ALL PROGRAMS/Apple Software Update. If it offers you a newer version of Apple Software Update, do it but Deselect any other software offered at the same time. Once done, try another iTunes install
    If you don't find ASU in All Program, go to Control Panel, Add & Remove programs and repair it.

  • ITunes 10.5 Upgrade fails to Install. The Error Message is: "There is a Problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

    When Upgrading on my laptop from iTunes 10.2.11 to 10.5.0 the message I get is: "There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package.  Aprogram run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or pacakge vendor.

    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!

  • On every attempt to install Itunes I've recieved the error message, "There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package Vendor." What do?

    I know there's a million threads like this, but I thought I'd record my experience.  I, too, was having the original poster's error when I tried to update iTunes on Windows XP.  I think I was stuck on 10. 
    I solved it by un-installing iTunes and every other Apple app.  I discovered that Apple Software Update would not un-install as its MSI file could not be found.  I used the "Windows Install Cleanup" tool from Microsoft to remove Apple Software Update from the list of installed programs.  Google "kb290301" for a Microsoft page that includes a download link for it.  After that, I was able to install a fresh copy of iTunes 10.5.2.
    I'm not sure why this app's folder and MSI were missing from my computer.  I had once used Laplink PC Mover to move everything from my old computer to this one, and perhaps it missed a bit.
