    can't open or reinstall i tunes

    What happens when you try to reinstall iTunes? Do you get an error message? If so, what does the error message say? (Precise text, please.)

    itunes error 7 windows error 126

  • b noir Level 9 (72,060 points)

    Okay ... so it does reinstall, but you get that message when trying to launch after the reinstall?


    If so, a complete uninstall/reinstall of iTunes and related software components is worth a try. (The 7s can indicate trouble with other software components, such as Apple Application Support.) For instructions, see the following documents:


    Removing and Reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP


    Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7

    Update your .netframe work to version 4 (see other help posts by apple support)


    Follow the instructions on this link, basically un-install everything, remove programs that says they are made by apple inc. (using add remove program)

    (Many thanks to


    You will also need to check and verify that the following folders have been removed:

    • C:\Program Files\Bonjour
    • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple
    • C:\Program Files\iTunes
    • C:\Program Files\iPod
    • C:\Program Files\QuickTime
    • C:\Windows\System32\QuickTime
    • C:\Windows\System32\QuickTimeVR

    dont forget to remove icloud alsoyou dont need to delete your itune music library though If any of these folders still exist, delete them along with their contents. (if you cant delete them, right click and go to properties and then security and change the control of the fold to you)do this for files under  program files and program file (x86) on your computer once you have deleted everything, restart your computer. Then I repaired my registry using a registry repair program. Important:-  instead of installing itunes I installed quick time, which installs apple application support (this is the corrupt file which is causing all the issues) i then installed itunes and it all worked fine, should take no longer than half hour to fix hope this helps

    Absolutely brilliant, the only post of all I have tried that solved the problem of my error 7 (126) when installing itunes. Just get rid of everything apple and do as Flinneybee says and it works.

    FYI: It looks like DivX was causing some issues for me. Removed it from my pc and can use itunes again.

    I tried unistalling/ reinstalling all the apple applications on my computer, nothing worked. For 2 hours for doing the same thing. Finally I found your post. It worked perfectly. Thank you so much Flinneybee!

    Thank you very much.  I had some problems with my Java and always thought that iTunes was to blame.  So I went about reinstalling every thing related to Java and was successful. But iTunes was still alluding.  I followed your instructions and now every thing is in place.  Java had its own problems but I needed it for other works.  Once such works were over I could test iTunes.  Your instructions really helped.  Thank you again.

    Like some of these other posters, I wasted an entire evening updating/installing/uninstalling/installing and kept getting the windows error 126.


    Your solutions worked.

    Thanks for the tips!  Uninstalling iTunes and every other piece of Apple software, rebooting, and reinstalling iTunes did the trick.
