Trouble installing iTunes or QuickTime for Windows
Hello Andrew T.
Thank you for the response. I will try what you have suggested, but before I do, there is some things I would like to know:
What is the Apple Mobile Device Support, Windows iPod Updater, and the MobileME Control Panel? I've tried to do a search for these programs under the start menu with no result to display.
Are these programs automatically installed as I installed iTunes? If so, where can they be found?
Thanks again! :]
All programs listed belong to Apple and are part of the iTunes Installer package.. All except
- Mobile Me
- iPod Updater
Mobile Me is a separate download but could still be on your OS if it was installed with an earlier version of Itunes when it was bundled together.
-iPod Updaters will only be there if you owned an iPod at some point and have not uninstalled the old style updater software in the last couple years.
*All these can be found in Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs in XP or Programs and Features in Vista
The 2 mentioned above may or may not be installed and in the list of programs to remove. This is simply the basic list of known Apple software that could be installed.
