Hear is what I had ( I manually updated afterwards )
Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Default Browser: Firefox 4
Non-default but installed - IE 9
Symptom: iTunes alerts me that there is a newer version and prompts me to download or "remind me later"
I click on "download update" and then window disappears.
I wait for a while
Nothing happens. iTunes continues to work normaly.
I can click on "check for updates" and repeat this scenario as many times as I'd like.
If I manually go to the download page on apple.com, I can download and install the new version without fail.
This has been going on for a while (several upgrades), though I did not note when it first occured.
Any ideas why the download button never works?
you could download the latests version from here.
