Right click on it and select run as administrator. if that doesn't work.

Remove itunes from add or remove programs, do a search for itunes on your harddrive and delete all folders with itunes or apple on it. there are probably some files in documents and settings folder that need to be removed.

basiclly the itunes and apple software needs to be fully removed and then reinstalled.

The recommended solution is to first uninstall Apple Mobile Device Support and iTunes, and then download and install the most recent version of iTunes. (Delete any previously downloaded versions.)

    Uninstall iTunes, Quicktime and any other iPod software that may require Quicktime.

    2:Search your Local Disk Drive
    for files containing the word "quicktime". When it finds all the
    hundreds of files, go through and delete all the old
    temp/backup/permitted files.

    3: Go to www.apple.com/itunes/download and download the iTunes and Quicktime combined download.

    4:Install iTunes/Quicktime combined pack.

    5:Open iTunes, .

Need to download iOS 8.0.1 on my apple ipad keeps telling me it failed because I am not o internet, but I know that I am connected to the iternet what is wrong?


if you have laptop/desktop computer you can sync the iPad with iTunes and download iOS 8.1.2 there:
Upgrading iPad to iOS 8: Through iTunes 1. Backup your iPad
Open iTunes. Select your iPad in iTunes and click Back Up Now.
2. Restart your iPad and your Computer
3. Download and Install the Update
Go to iTunes -> Select iPad -> Check for Update -> Click Download and Update
itunes-ios7b.png
Whichever method you choose, the process will take quite some time to work depending on how much free storage you have on your iPad, your internet connection, and how Apple's servers are doing with upgrades. Occasionally, Apple will either not let you download the upgrade or it will fail. For iOS 8, you must have an iPad 3 or newer. This does not work with the original iPad - if something goes wrong, restart your device, and try again.

I tried to download the latest version of itunes but for someone it wouldnt download and now my old itunes doesnt work either. When I click on itunes to open it up, a message box pops up reading...


It sounds like the download removed the existing software.

I would open control panel, then click add or remove programs, then click on itunes. see if there is a repair option with the installer. sometimes there is, but if not, then uninstall it, but keep your saved files.

Then re-install it, and when it sets up, it should still accept your old saved files. That way you don't have to recopy you music, games or videos

The 'error 2" is saying that when you clicked on the icon, there was no file remaining in your system that matched what the program was that was assigned to that icon.

You can find out what the program was, and its location by right clicking on the icon, and then click on properties.

Uninstall your older version or any version of I tunes. Do a search for itunes and if you find more, remove them, Try it with the uninstall program utility first. If you have problems uninstalling it, maybe it tells you that you don't have permission( this has happened to me with other programs), then look for a program on the internet called "revo uninstaller". This is a great program for pesky programs that don't or can't be deleted. This "will" take em out. then, just re-install the program.

My itunes wont open


I have had an issue similar to this. I uninstalled it and redownloaded. After installing again I opened up Itunes and then plugged in my ipod. Try resetting the ipod by holding the menu and middle select key at the same time. After it resets it should appear on the itunes program. if it does reset it to factory settings just to be safe.

Itunes download will only go to F drive


Have you tried downloading manually from:

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

If you can not select where to save it, maybe try using a different web browser, Firefox should do the trick.

Once downloaded, run the installer and it should update your current version.
