He are the specs. for windows
* Windows XP or 2000 (latest service packs recommended)
* 500 MHz Pentium class processor or better
* QuickTime 7.1.3 (included)
* 256MB RAM
* Supported CD-R or DVD-R drive to burn CDs
* Broadband Internet connection (DSL/Cable/LAN) for buying and streaming music
Additional Video Requirements
* 2.0 GHz Pentium class processor or better
* 512MB RAM
* 32MB video RAM
Look at the additional video requirements, 32 MB video ram, I use a notebook, and it's shared ram, but I think 16MB.
maybe it has something to do with that
Okay, I posted earlier about not being able to use the album cover view with iTunes v7.
I WAS WRONG!
When I tested it out I was Remoted in (with RDP). When I tested it at home it worked SWEET!! I tested again from RDP today, same problem. I'm not sure if it checked my bandwidth link or Apple just disabled it in RDP or some setting that checks your video settings to ensure your current view can handle it. BUT, I do know this. I tested it with VNC(tightvnc) just to check, and VIOLA it worked, albeit slow though.
Sorry to add confusion, just don't use the feature within RDP
In case nobody shared this yet, exit iTunes
1. Start - Settings - Control Panels -
2. Click Settings tab

acceleration. Select Full
Click OK buttons to close and save your changes.
Good luck. This worked for me.

Follow rgalanti's steps above. I went into my control panel and increased my resolution to 32 bit from 16 bit and it works beautifully now!!!!!!!
OK, read through some more posts here and decided to update my Radeon video drivers to the latest.
This went very smooth and now I get a beautiful display for the album view and also for the Movies section of ITMS.
I still think the install is very poor for the 4 hours it took to download the album covers but HOLY SMOKE this new album display is slick as all get out.
I mean this is the most beautiful UI I've seen on a new piece of software in years. Or even better, it's the best UI/Display I've seen in Windows ever.
Same problem. Matrox G550. I downloaded the latest Matrox drivers from here:
And the latest Direct X from here:
No luck. Prior to this, I had totally removed and then re-installed iTunes following the instructions here:
This is very aggravating. Even more frustrating, is that despite thousands of posts on this forum in the past few days, Apple hasn't acknowleged an issue with iT7. If this was a Microsoft app, they'd be torn a new backside by now.
