ITunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For best result, turn off compatibility mode of iTunes before you open it.

> 1. Make sure iTunes isn't running.
2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.
3. Navigate to this Registry location:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Micr... NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
4; Its better you clean/repair Windows registry with RegInOut.
4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.
5. Start iTunes. The offending message should be gone!

I encountered iTunes error 29, how can I fix it?


5 methods for you:
1. Fix iTunes Error 29 by Factory Reset (Data Loss)
Factory resetting could solve most of the iTunes error 29 cases, however, it would erase all the contents on your iOS device. You’d better backup your device in advance.
Here is how to factory reset an iOS device.
Go to Settings > General > Reset, click on Erase All Content and Settings.
2. Fix iTunes Error 29 by Keeping Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware Application Up to Date (Complicated)
Anti-virus and anti-malware applications could protect our data, however, as time goes by, those applications could become outdated and cause iTunes error 29.
Updating those applications is easy. All you need to do is to go to Apple Store and do reinstallation. However, that could be troublesome for users who own multiple anti-virus/anti-malware applications.
3. Fix iTunes Error 29 by Updating iTunes on Computer (Time Consuming)
Besides outdated anti-virus and anti-malware applications, outdated iTunes on your computer could also cause iTunes error 29.
Here is how to update the Apple operating system.
On Mac:
Open iTunes, from the menu bar at the top of your computer screen, choose iTunes > Check for Updates, then just follow the instructions, you are able to have the latest version of iTunes.
On PC:
Open iTunes, from the menu bar at the top of the iTunes window, choose Help > Check for Updates, then follow the prompts, you can download the latest version of iTunes.
Please note that using iTunes to restore iOS system could also cause data loss.
4. Fix iTunes Error 29 by Reinstalling the Battery (Risky)
Battery issues may also cause iTunes error 29. Below are ways to reinstall battery, we recommend you try this method under the supervision of a specialist.
What you will need are two screwdrivers, a suction cup and a plastic pull tool.
Step 1. Hold the Power button to power off your iOS device, then remove the two screws on the left and right side of the charging port.
Step 2. Use the suction cup to lift the screen a little bit, remove the screws that lock the battery connector to the battery retaining bracket.
Step 3. Use a plastic pull tool to lift the connector, wait a few seconds, now put everything back.
5. Fix iTunes Error 29 without Data Loss (Easy & Fast)
As mentioned above, both software and hardware could cause iTunes error 29. If you are encountering iTunes error 29 caused by software, PhoneRescue – iOS data recovery could help you fix it with great ease and you don't even have to try other methods.
These methods are listed in an article from imobie.com; hope one of them works for you.

I have an issue running Itunes on an Asus laptop with windows 10. When I click to preview a song iTunes gives an error message saying that "iTunes has encountered an error" then it closes the program.


You might need to update iTunes and see if that fixes it. Or you can look up the performance logs on your computer and it will tell you what the error is. You can then look up that error on the net to see if the solution is out there.

Itunes drivers for importing and burning CDs/DVDs missing where can i get them? Bill


It seems that some users installing iTunes 8 on Windows systems are encountering an error message:

“ERROR: The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning cds and dvds are missing… Please re-install iTunes”

iTunes uses GEAR software drivers for importing and burning CD’s & DVD’s. Re-installing (or installing the latest GEAR drivers seems to fix this problem. No reboot required for this install.

You can get the current GEAR drivers here: http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.cfm

If this does not fix your problem download a fresh installer for iTunes here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Uninstall iTunes, reboot, & then do a fresh install of iTunes.

Hope This Help You

Itunes 8 continues to not open up (


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.
