I have tried installing, uninstalling, reinstalling iTunes multiple times. 


I download from: http://apple.com/itunes/download/  (Yes, it shows it being the 64 bit version)


Each time, iTunes either will not launch or locks up once it does.


I see in the notes on the page in the link above that my version of Windows (Windows 7 64bit) requires "iTunes 64-bit installer" yet I can NOT find the download for this "installer" anywhere.  Is it supposed to be imbedded/included in the iTunes download? 


Everytime I search Apple support for this, it just gives me another version of iTunes to download.


So I tried downloading an older 64 bit version of iTunes.  The problem there is, it tells me that I alrady have a newer version, after i already removed it,  that already exists, so it won't let me use this version.


PLEASE HELP!!!  My iPod classic is now nothing more than a paperweight! 

iTunes, Windows 7, Windows Home 64 bit

    The download is the installer. It's a self-installing exe file. You just run that to upgrade. The Apple download site usually auto-detects that you have 64-bit Win 7 and downloads the correct file. The file is always named iTunes64Setup.exe and the latest version is the one at the apple download site. That looks like this for me:

    Rock and a hard place...


    Self installer would be great if I could get on the internet...


    Without iTunes i can't tether my iPhone - without tethering my phone I can't get iTunes.


    On the PC that has iTunes I can't download the installer as I already ahve the latest version.


    If I could download the file to USB then take it with me to the offline PC - I could instal and then tether
