Question about Apple iTunes

1 Answer

When trying to open iTunes, I get the following error message: "iTunes cannot run because some of its required files are missing. Please reinstall iTunes." When I click on iTunes setup, and click on "Run" I get this message: "A later version of iTunes is already installed on this computer." I'm stuck! Will reinstalling iTunes lose library I already have? Everything worked great yesterday.

Hello wjewell154 for some reason some of your registry's were deleted from your computer. the solution to this problem is to uninstall your current Itunes software and reinstall itunes.
NOTE:uninstalling iTunes will not delete any preferences, playlists, or content; thing of what you are doing as a manuel upgrade

If you are running Windows Vista/7 goto the Start menu select "Control Panel" from the right column from that menu, select "programs and features" now find iTunes in that list and right click from the right click menu, select the bold option "Uninstall" your uninstall program will gather information about the program and then it will uninstall now click here and it will guide you to the apple website to reinstall iTunes 10
please rate :-)

I own an ACER ASPIRE 5732Z-443G32Mn, my problem is with the webcam which is not working. When I'm trying to open the cam the following message is shown on the screen, " The program can't start...


Hi

Just reinstall your webcam driver to fix the missing DLL FILE.

Or go to this link http://www.dll-files.com/.

If still the same, the only solution is to reinstall the operating system and reinstall again the webcam driver which might be corrupted with the windows registry file.

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.

IPOD VIDEO 30GB WITH ERROR MESSAGE


I found this on the ipod forum on Apples website. See their site for any further assistance.

Sometimes you can resolve it by doing the following:
- Download the .exe file from Apple.com/iTunes
- Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
- iTunes > Remove
- Open C:\Program Files (default location)
- Find "iTunes" (default folder name)
- Shift + Delete > OK
- Run a registry cleaner, such as PC Tools Desktop Maestro, to remove all old shortcuts and registry keys no longer valid on your computer.
- Start > Shut Down > Restart your computer
- Run the iTunes install program

This should fix the problem, however may require also to update your Windows software (update.Microsoft.com) and download the latest Visual Basic Runtime executable. One time during my clean reinstall the iTunes software mentioned an error with a vb run executable and couldn't continue the install until I found it online.
