Question marked as Solved

The issue I was havnig with the installer was that the Apple software Update folder under Program files (x86) was not being updated. so when the package ran the files it needed were not there. I had to go to another machine and copy the files from that directory into my Apple software update directory and then ran the Itunes installer again. It work like a charm. i was able to install itunes no problem. You could not even use the repair or just the Apple Software Update installer. that would fail too. Try and installing iTunes on another machine or copy from a friends and you install should work.

I was having the same issue. Heres what I did:

1. Uninstalled itunes. (dont worry this does not delete your music or media)

2. restart

3. if install doesnt work, go to control panel > Uninstall program > left click on Apple Update Software so that it's highlighted > Click on Repair at the top.

4. Wait until the process is complete and then try reinstalling. Worked for me after that.

The old Apple Update Software must not be communicating very well with the new itunes software.

Good luck!
