Downloaded itunes onto PC which has Vista. Can't open itunes; get message: Apple Application Support was not found. Uninstalled & reinstalled twice with same results.

Itunes has two version for windows vista, may be you are using the incorrect version.


Check you windows version : right click in COMPUTER then click in PROPERTIES and see if you

have a Windows Vista 32 bits or Windows Vista 64 bits.


Go to


If you click on the big blue button, you are downloading the 32 bits version.

if you go down a little bit more, you can see in blue letters "64-bit installer".


Take the correct version and that's it.


Good luck. Remember to rate my answer, please.

Every time I try to open itunes it says "itunes stopped working and was shut down" I even tried re installing it with no success

You should try this:

Follow the steps below to create a new user account in Windows Vista

From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
  1. Open Add or remove user accounts (If using the Classic View in Windows Vista, open User Accounts. Then open Manage another account).
  2. Select Create a new account and follow the instructions to complete the account setup process.
  3. Once the new account is created, choose Log Off from the Start menu.
  4. Log into the newly created user account.
  5. Open iTunes and determine whether the issue you were experiencing persists in this new user.

If still it doesn't work than follow the folllowing steps:

  • Remove iTunes Plug-ins
    Third-party iTunes plug-ins can cause many issues, particularly if the plug-in has not been updated to be compatible with new versions of iTunes. iTunes plug-ins are stored in the following location:
    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iTunes Plug-ins

  • Remove iTunes Preference files
    Some of the files that iTunes uses to store settings and preferences may be unusable and cause issues. iTunes has two folders where preferences are saved. Move one of them to the desktop and test to see if the issue persists. If it does, move it back and remove the second folder. The location for the two preference folders are:
    • C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Apple Computer\iTunes
    • C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes

    I tunes store error 306.

    Launch Internet Explorer

    Select Internet Options
    Click the Connections tab
    Click the LAN Settings button
    Make sure that that "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox is unchecked
    Click OK till you are out of everything, and then close Internet Explorer
    Try again in iTunes to load the store

    if this dose not work

    Then it is your security that is blocking you

    try this

    Sometimes this error can be caused by software on your computer that slows down the network connection. This error can also appear if you are downloading multiple items. I'd like to provide some steps that should help you successfully download your purchases.

    It often helps to pause the download and then download items one at a time. These steps will walk you through doing this:

    1) Open iTunes.

    2) From the Store menu at the top, choose Check for Available Downloads. If you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, the option will say Check for Purchases.

    3) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. Your purchases should begin downloading.

    4) Under the STORE section on the left, click Downloads.

    5) Click the Pause All button in the lower-right corner. This will temporarily pause all of your downloads.

    6) To resume only one of the downloads, click the refresh button that appears to the right of one of the paused downloads.

    Certain types of software can affect the way a computer sends and receives information from the Internet. Here are a few examples of these types of software:

    • Firewalls
    • Web accelerators
    • Ad filters
    • Virus protection software

    If you have any of this kind of software installed on your computer, you will need to configure each of the applications to allow your internet connection to access iTunes freely. For instructions, please refer to the documentation that came with that software, or contact the software's manufacturer. You'll need to configure the software to allow these domains to send and receive data from the Internet freely:

    For assistance in configuring your firewall or accelerator software, you may need to contact the manufacturer or your Internet service provider (ISP). When contacting their support representatives, it may be useful to have the following information:

    "Well Known" TCP and UDP Ports Used By Apple Software Products

    The following article helps Windows users pinpoint software conflicts that could cause the error:
    Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows XP

    Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista

    Once you have managed to allow access to iTunes through other software, please follow these instructions:

    1) Sign out of the iTunes Store.

    2) Quit the iTunes application.

    3) Restart your computer.

    4) Open iTunes.

    5) Select Check for Available Downloads from the Store menu at the top of iTunes, (if you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, you'll choose Check for Purchases).

    If you can't find this option, you can also click this link to do the same thing:

    6) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. The missing item should begin downloading and appear in your Purchased playlist.

    Please note that the iTunes Store cannot investigate every user's connection issue. Apple Discussions are another source of information about iTunes, where everyone from new users to professionals can interact and share their knowledge and experiences. You may find another user with the same operating system or ISP that may be able to help resolve this issue. You can find the iTunes discussions group at:

    If you are using a dial-up connection, you might consider downloading your purchases over a broadband connection, if you have access to one.
