Acer incompatability with iTUNES

Tried to download and install iTunes 7 onto Acer and I get an error message that says "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64 bit) version of the program and then contact the software developer". Why on earth isn't the Acer operating system compatible with the most popular freeware available on the planet? Any ideas?

Also, when I tried to load a printer driver, the CD drive stopped working. Any ideas here?

    Check the version of Operating System that you are running - I cannot help you unless you tell us what OS you have.

    what operating system do you have - you usually see this message if you try to run 32-bit software on a 64-bit Operating System. Did you order a Vista 64-bit operating system?

    If so you will have lots of compatability problems!

I think Steve is correct, it's sounds like XP 64 bit or a Vista issue.
Are you going to let us know?

Cannot install itunes windows 7 64 bit


For 64 bit machines Itunes V.9.025 is the recommended version.
download link:
http://support.apple.com/downloads/iTunes_8_0_2_for_Windows_64_bit
after the download, right-click on the downloaded file and click on the "Run as Administrator" option.
this should work.
if the issue still persists, right-click on the downloaded file and select the "Compatibility" tab.
then, check the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode".
also, disable the User account control feature before installing iTunes.

I have windows 7 with the latest version of Itunes, and I've recently bought the new video nano, but it never wants to connect. The message comes up that an ipod has been detected but cannot be synced,...


You need to find the iTunes.exe program file. I'm not sure where it is on Windows 7, possibly under "c:\Program Files\iTunes".

Once you find iTunes.exe, right-click on it, select "Properties", then "Compatability" tab. Inside "Privilege Level", check off "Run this program as an administrator".

Itunes


Hey 0836,

If the error message you are seeing reads as "QuickTime failed to initialize. Error # - 2096" you may wish to turn off Compatibility Mode for QuickTime, as doing so may resolve this problem.

You should be able to disable Compatibility Mode by doing the following:

1) Right-click on the QuickTime Player program and choose the "Properties" option from the menu that appears. Normally the application is kept in the C:\Program Files\QuickTime directory, but may differ if you chose to have the program installed onto another hard drive or in another directory.

2) Once in the "Properties" menu, click on the "Compatibility" tab.

3) Uncheck the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode" if it is currently selected.

4) Click on the "Apply" button.


If QuickTime was not initially in Compatibility Mode, and you still receive an error message prompting you that iTunes requires Windows 2000 or later (or prompts you to make sure that compatibility mode is disabled in iTunes.exe), you may wish to try the following instead:

1) Shut down iTunes.

2) Click on the "Start" menu, then on "My Computer." You can generally also double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop as an alternative.

3) Once in "My Computer," open the drive where Windows XP is installed. Typically this is the C:\ drive, but please remember that your configuration may slightly differ if you have multiple hard drives.

4) Open the "Program Files" folder.

5) Open the "iTunes" program folder.

6) Next, right-click on the iTunes program - this may be listed as either iTunes or iTunes.exe. Once you have done so, choose "Properties" from the menu that appears.

7) Click on the "Compatibility" tab, and uncheck the option to run in Compatibility Mode if it is selected.

8) Click "OK" to accept the new settings.


One of these two solutions should hopefully resolve the problem, but I would strongly suggest visting Apple's support homepage for more information if you are unsure of how to proceed.

http://www.apple.com/support/

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
