There are a whole bunch of threads of people reporting the same update problem on Windows, but I didn't see a statement from Apple acknowledging awareness of the problem. Presumably Apple tests updates on Windows, but didn't test the conditions that trigger this problem, though I'm using Windows 7 and updating from 10.6.1.7 so I don't have an obviously unusual configuration.
My impression is that Apple wouldn't announce a problem even if it knew that one existed and knew what had gone wrong. Most likely they would just fix the problem in the next version. Is there anything of particular importance in this version to make it so we should upgrade manually a b noir suggests rather than just waiting until Apple fixes this in the next update?

Good point. Knowing the details might be of some help for folks with making a decision (one way or another).

re. the anything of importance thing ... itunes 10.6.3 is required to be able to update a 3rd gen itouch from ios 3.2 to 5.1, at least that's what itunes 10.0.0 tells me when i try ... it does give me the option to update to 10.6.3, but that fails in the same way as described in this post ... have also tried running the apple updater as admin, that doesn't help ... any ideas?
I have the exactly the same problem...Everytime i hit update to 10.6.3, nothing happens.
I juat did it as simple as this:
1- Downloaded itunes 10.6.3 from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
2- After downloading is finished, i just double clicked the file and it began with installation
3- When installation is done, i opened itunes it was updated. I lost nothing of my data.
