The problem is from ownership of the files. Go to control panel.then programs, then remove the programs in the following order: itunes quicktime apple software update apple mobile bonjour apple application support. Now comes the tricky bit. Go to each of the folders in the program directory in turn starting with itunes. Right click the folder and click delete. If it will not let you delete the folder then right click and go down to properties. Go to the security tab. Highlight yourself and give yourself full control. If it will not let you do this then go to advanced then owner and highlight yourself. Click on edit, highlight yourself.The important bit is to put a tick in replace owner on all subcontainers and objects. Click ok ok close all the windows and go back to the folder again. Right click and go down to properties and highlight yourself and give yourself full rights. apply ok. then when you right click on the folder you will be able to delete it. if not go to the subdirectories and do the above. Do this with all the apple related folders mentioned above in the program file folder and also the program data folder . clear all contents in the temp directories of program and program data folders. This takes some time but it does work. Restart your computer and reinstall itunes and itunes and quicktime will work . solved

I have a new dell laptop with vista and cannot install itunes - it freezes and comes up with an error message.


What does the error message say? Post the exact contents here.

Just in case, check to see if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit by going to computer properties. Make sure you got the correct version of iTunes for your computer.

Check this Apple support page for more information.

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

 

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.

Hi, you can check which version of Windows you have by clicking on the Start button (the Vista orb) and from the Start menu, right click on Computer. Choose Properties from the menu that appears, and you'll see a lot of information about your computer. There should be a line that says whether you have a 32-bit version of Vista or a 64-bit version. Depending on which version you have, you'll need to download the compatible version of iTunes. You can download both versions here:

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

For the 32-bit version, click the Download Now button; for the 64-bit version, scroll down to where you see the link for 64-bit installer on the left hand side and click it.

Hope that helps!

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.


Error: x64.exe not a valid Win32 application This article applies to:
  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003
  • Browser(s): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla 1.4+
  • Java version(s): 6.0
SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.
SOLUTION

User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.

Follow these steps to download 32-bit Java
  1. Go to Manual download
  2. Click Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Online.
  3. The File Download dialog box appears.
  4. Choose the folder location.
  5. (Save the file to a known location on your computer, for example, to your desktop).
  6. Click Save.
  7. Close all applications including the browser.
  8. Double-click on the saved file icon to start the installation process.
