Windows 7: Major problems with iTunes Installation!

You can always try remuxing the videos to another container such as mp4, mkv, mov and/or hdmov, though I see no reason why m4v shouldn't work in MPC-HC, except the fact you're using K-Lite :/
I thought of that too, but m4v is DRM protected, and the media converter program that I have been using (Danusoft Media Converter Ultimate) to convert one video format to another won't convert m4v to anything else unless it can play the video in order to make a copy. And guess what it uses to play the video? iTunes! Which has a corrupt installation on my machine! So it's 'round and 'round I go! A catch-22 situation. I can't play m4v files without iTunes, and iTunes won't install properly on my PC.

I thought of that too--converting the m4v to another format--but m4v is DRM protected, and the program that I use to convert one video format to another(Danusoft Media Converter Ultimate) won't convert m4v to anything else unless it can play the video in order to make a copy of it. That's how it gets around the DRM protection. And guess what it uses to play the video? iTunes! Which has a corrupt installation on my machine. A catch-22 situation. And as previously posted, whenever I try to play the m4v video with MPC-HC, I get an error message about missing codecs.

That's exactly why I refuse to touch any of that Apple cr*p stuff

It probably works great in connection with a Mac but isn't too cool between 2 worlds

If you need iTunes I would say uninstall it (Revo uninstaller), clean leftovers (Ccleaner)
Download the latest copy and try that again only THIS Time don't change any permissions but run the installer with admin rights.

Even if its DRM you may still be able to remux the streams into another container. Not sure, though.
Just a sidenote, remuxing isn't the same thing as converting/re-encoding streams.

Download and install mkvtoolnix and follow this old attachment I uploaded for another thread some time ago:



(Ignore the append option unless you have several video files of the same resolution, audio and video properties that you want to combine).

OK, so while everyone has ignored the issue. Let's see if we can actually get iTunes installed. For the record, I've been using iTunes since 2004 (From XP-Vista-Win 7) and have not had issues. I will say though that I only use is for my audio player. In fact I don't use any audio player BUT iTunes. I currently have 10.1 installed. So to answer the question.... iTunes WILL work under Windows 7 64-bit.

With that said, what version are you trying to install? And where are you getting the file from? You should be getting it from Apple.... Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now

Also, can you post screen shots of error messages?

Thanks

Thank you for re-focusing on the real issue- the corrupt iTunes installation. It seems that I may have resolved this problem. I booted into Safe Mode and did a complete un-installation of all iTunes/Apple components, as outlined in the How-To-Geek protocol Completely Remove iTunes and Other Apple Software from a Windows Computer. Then, per your suggestion, I downloaded the latest version of iTunes from Apple's website. I was expecting the usual complications upon installation, but to my surprise, iTunes 10.1 installed on my WIn 7 64-bit PC without a hitch. I can now view m4v videos and browse the iTunes Store. Thanks to all who responded! Best Regards...
