Updated iTunes yesterday ... when ok.  Today, when turning on computer got an alert window about iTunes that says "the procedure entry point sqlite3_wal_checkpoint could not be located in the dynamoic library SQLite3.dll".  How do I fix this?  iTunes does start up ok, but don't know what the alert window is telling me and when I clicked on 'check for updates' in the iTunes pull down I'm told iTunes is up to date (iTunes

    I'm having the same problem as well. Running Windows 7 and just updated Safari and iTunes and getting the same error. Searched the internet at it seems to be common issue.  Hopefully there will be a fix or someone can share with us the fix soon.

    I have the same exact problem after updating last night too!  I'm running Windows 7 - 32 bit.  But my iTunes won't even start.

    I updated right now. And got the same ERR msg about the checkpoint. So the bug seems not to be fixed by apple. Very annoying. I can run iTunes tho.

    After spending 30 minutes on the phone with Apple Support, we got it fixed.  Here is how to fix this issue:


    1. Temporarily shut down anti-virus and firewall software
    2. Open Control Panel, Programs and Features (or Add and Remove Programs), and go to the uninstall section
    3. Remove all Apple products in this order - iTunes, Quicktime, Apple Software Update, Apple Mobile Device Support, Bonjour, Apple Application Support.  You do not need to remove Safari
    4. Restart computer
    5. Go to and download newest version of iTunes
    6. Re-install


    That did it for me!  No more error messages and everythine appears to be working again.  Hope this helps everyone!

    Had the same error.  Running Win 7 - 64 Bit.  Downloaded iTunes installer and did a repair install (when you run it over an existing install, you get the options to repair or uninstall - pick repair).  Fixed the problem for me.  iPhone sync worked and iTunes worked after that.  Did not need to uninstall anything.

    So not sure how you guys fixed this even following instructions above.


    The latest auto update is The download from the website for windows 7 64bit is 10.3 so when I try run the installer to do a repair it won't install because it is an older version. If I uninstall the existing version and install the 10.3 then surely the auto update is going to cause the same problem? I don't really have the time for this and quite honestly I don't really use itunes but this pop up every time I restart is annoying.


    Is it just me but I can find the everywhere but on the apple site. Not really that keen to download it from somewhere else.
