Everytime I try to install itunes i get as far as 'publishing product information' on the install, and then an error pops up saying 'An error occured during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft. VC80.CRT, type="win32", version="8.0.507274053", publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e8e3b",processorArchitecture="amd64". Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x8007054F. '


What on earth does this mean, and how do I fix this problem????


Thanks! x

HRESULT: 0x8007054F


These ones are typically caused by underlying problems on the PC that also often cause Windows Updates to fail to install. If we can fix the Windows Update trouble, we can usually get the iTunes trouble cleaned up en passant.


Go into your Windows update and try to check for new updates. If updates install, stock up on the ones you're behind on, restarting the PC if requested to do so. After the restart, try installing iTunes again. Does it go through this time for you?


If windows updates fail to install, go into your Update History and doubleclick the failures. What alphanumeric codes appear for you? Are they also 8007054F, or some other number? (If they're another number, what number are you getting?)
