I am trying to install itunes but the installer is not going beyond the "Installing Apple application support" stage,

    Your ipad I am sure is very user friendly. Your windows however stop installation. Most of those problems do come from security software conflicts. Disable your friendly security software, and try again.

    Do you have any of these programs installed?


    1. iTunes
    2. QuickTime
    3. Apple Software Update
    4. Apple Mobile Device Support
    5. Bonjour
    6. Apple Application Support


    I had the trouble that if an old #4 or #5 was installed, a full iTunes install did not work.


    If you have any of the above installed, try this,

    I already stopped Windows Defender and Windows Firewall but it has not helped the situation. I am actually considering formatting my laptop, but am not very willing to at the moment.

    I checked my installed programs in Control Panel and I have noen of the mentioned programs installed.

    Windows defender or firewall is not usually a problem. Something stronger is. None of us would know - since we are not looking at your  pc.

    So you likely have another program blocking the scripted Apple installer.

    You might try a manual install.

    The instructions below I've done with Windows 7 64 bit.


    After downloading the latest version of iTunes from Apple, extract the files in “iTunes64Setup.exe”

    (If you have never done this, you may need to download a program such as WinRAR [64 bit].)


    Manually run each install file in the following order.








    If there are any errors, stop, and write back with the results.
