Hi,

Since there still seems to be no answer for this error code anywhere, here is what helped for me: Close iTunes and restart it running as administrator - for me the error didn't appear any more after that. I am running iTunes 11 on Windows 8.

No, this doesn't work for everybody. What worked for me was disabling Bonjour Service. It's known to cause a lot of trouble in Windows. You can disable it in the Task Manager or follow instructions you can find online. There was no need to run iTunes as adminstrator.

Well, I had the same problem and none of those solutions solved my problem, but I solved my problem by my own. That's it:


On Windows 7/8/8.1


4. On desktop go to your "YourUserNameFolder" > "Organize" > "Folder and Search Options" > Mark "Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives" > Unmark "Hide protected operating system files" > OK;


5. 'AppData" > "Roaming" > "Apple Computer" and move this folder to desktop. (This step backs up all your content from iTunes);


1. Install Revo Unistaller (The paid version is very recommended);


2. Uninstall iTunes using Revo, removing completely any trace from the installation of it (Use the advanced mode);


3. Reboot your system;


4. After the system restarts, open "Computer" > "Program Data" and delete the folder "Apple Computer". (Don't delete that one you that moved to desktop);


5. Reinstall iTunes and don't open it, after the install;


6. Reboot your system again;


7. Now go back on "AppData" > "Roaming" > "Apple Computer" and move back the that folder that you moved to desktop.


8. Now your iTunes should work again.:D

I had the same issue and disabling Bonjour cause iTunes to open and then immediately crash, but I realized that stopping and then RE-starting Bonjour fixed the issue - at least for now. I am unsure if it is a permanent fix or if it will only work so long as I keep iTunes open.
