After installing iTunes on 64 bit Windows 8 systems iTunes will not run. I've tried to install 32 bit, but I'm told to install 64 bit version (64 bit version installs to x86 folder). iTuns will not run even if I attach iPod.
You should probably wait till the next update for iTunes. I don't think iTunes is offically ready for Windows 8.
iTunes 11 works fine on my three Win 8 PCs
