Windows 7: Major problems with iTunes Installation!

Major problems with iTunes Installation!

Pardon me if this issue has been addressed already, but I am at my wits end here. I have been going 'round and 'round with trying to get iTunes installed on my Win 7 PC to no avail! I keep getting multiple and persistent errors no matter what I do. The installation errors usually say that I don't have access or rights to certain registry keys. I have hunted down those keys in the registry and changed the permissions on them, only to have a new problem key present itself, and this process seems NEVER ENDING! I have tried un-installing all of the various components from the BLOATED iTunes program, like the Bonjour Service and support for Apple devices and attempted a re-install, again to no avail. I just want to be able to watch m4v videos. QuickTime Alternative will not work. Media Player Classic will not work. Changing the m4v extension to mp4 will not work. HELLLLLLLLLLLP!!!

Media Player Classic won't work with the videos? Get the latest Home Cinema release from here:

You want the latest x64 .zip release.

I would drop Itunes and use FooBar for your music. There is an extension that gets the program to recognize your Ipod.

Thanks, but...

Thanks for your response and the link. I have downloaded and installed Media Player Classic Home Cinema. I have updated my DivX codecs and installed the latest 64-bit K-Lite codec package. However, I am still unable to view the m4v video in any media player. And I still cannot install iTunes. Any other suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

You don't need any codecs. And what happens when you try to run the video?

The faster you run from itunes the happier you'll be......imo. Please look at a far tighter solution MediaMonkey available as a free download. You will soon be flying through your collection and way happier than itunes.

Well you know that you have to rename them to mp4 m4v is no format per se..
I have played all mp4 videos i came across so far with MediaPlayerClassic-HomeCinema
or when nothing else goes with VLC (which has build in Codecs)
VideoLAN - VLC media player for Windows
or try the portable version so installation de-installation is no hassle
VLC Media Player Portable | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB drives

I even those don't work, the problem must lie elsewhere (DRM ?)

If I try to run the m4v video in Windows Media Player, WMP opens but just sits there, blank. If I try to run the video in Media Player Classic the same thing happens- the program opens but does not play the movie. I even downloaded and installed the latest 64-bit version of VLC, and when I try to play the m4v in that program I get an error message, something about pins and missing codecs. I think that iTunes has really screwed something up on my system but I am having trouble setting things to right.

Correct me if I am wrong, but MediaMonkey seems to be an audio player, and I want to play an m4v video, which is Apple's proprietary container format for audio/video.

Where are these m4v videos coming from?

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 :/
