Title pretty much sums it up. I'm getting very frustrated. I've tried turning off the compatability of my Quicktime, and nothing is changed. Can anyone figure out the problem? I can't find an answer anywhere.


Windows 7, itunes
Solved by bullet44 on Sep 10, 2011 2:26 PM Solved

My itunes was in "read only" mode, so after I unchecked that I got a message saying "itunes library.itl cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of itunes". After I installed itunes updates, INCLUDING a quicktime 7.7 update (even though I already had 7.7), I went to find the file "itunes library" and changed it to "itunes library.itl". It works now! Finally

Thanks for your help though, I'm posting this incase any future people have this issue! There's a video on youtube by Xzirius showing everything in case you don't understand!

    If Quicktime was not in compatability mode, check iTunes:

    Yea i got that same message to Quicktime failed to initialize (error-2096) Quicktime is required to run itunes.Please reinstall itunes, which i did so many times which did'nt work and so i started reading some of the articles on this site. there was one article i read which says right click on quicktimeplayer and click on properties then click compatibilty tab and deselect checkbox or boxes but i only deseleted one box which reads windows vista .windows 2000 or 95 or whatever so i did that opened up itunes again and still i got the same error message then i started thinkin i wonder if i should do the same thing on the itunes player click on properties, click compatibilty tab then deselect box so i did. Open up itunes hey hey presto it open up alrighty only problem i lost all my music but lucklie at backed them up on another hardrive, on my ipod & Cds...Hopefully this will help you out or anyone else...
