That one can be produced if you have an older version of Apple Application Support on the PC than is required by your current iTunes version. (The required version of Apple Application Support is included in the standard iTunes installers, but for some reason it hasn't been updating properly for some folks, for iTunes version 126.96.36.199 and possibly 188.8.131.52.)
Let's try updating your Apple Application Support to version 3.0.1 by doing a standalone Apple Application Support install.
Download and save a copy of the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64setup.exe) installer file to your hard drive:
Download and install the free trial version of WinRAR:
Right-click the iTunesSetup.exe (or iTunes64Setup.exe), and select "Extract to iTunesSetup" (or "Extract to iTunes64Setup"). WinRAR will expand the contents of the file into a folder called "iTunesSetup" (or "iTunes64Setup").
Go into the folder and doubleclick the AppleApplicationSupport.msi to do a standalone AAS install.
Does it install properly for you? If so, can you launch iTunes without the error now?
If instead you get an error message during the install, let us know what it says. (Precise text, please.)
When I right click on the itunes64setup.exe I do not get anything that says extract. The menu that appears says:
Run as administrator
Spybot search and destroy
Scan with malware bytes
Restore previous versions
Create short cut
