Windows 7: iTunes 32-bit on Win7 64-bit... OK?

iTunes 32-bit on Win7 64-bit... OK?

Hi all,

I'm one of the long-suffering Lenovo T410/T510 owners with a system that pukes constant BSOD's -- I've had 8 in a day. At any rate, I'm about to undergo my 4th system reload(!) as I seem to have narrowed some things to iTunes 64-bit. Version 9.x caused issues, and with my last reload I put iTunes 10 64-bit and immediately the BSODs returned big time. So, I'm suspecting that at least one piece of the Apple's iBloat 64-bit package is causing problems, most likely conflicting with the ThinkVantage Power Manager (which itself is picky and unstable as Paris Hilton after rehab).

So, the big question is: Does anyone have any hands-on knowledge of any issues/problems with installing iTunes 32-bit on Windows 7 64-bit? I mean, if their 64-bit drivers or other software is a buggy mess, perhaps the 32-bit will be better? (I never had any problems with iTunes 32-bit on my older Win7 32-bit laptop.) God only knows, but I'm hoping someone here on earth might know, too.

Thanks in advance!

Don't think the itunes installer will let you install the 32 bit one on a 64 bit system. It will toss you up an error.

Most of the 64 bit itunes isn't 64 bit anyways. Just a couple extensions are 64 bit. The bulk of it is still 32 bit, and the itunes process itself runs in 32 bit.

Never had any real problems running it on my system, with any version.

I've been using iTunes on Windows 7 x64 since Windows 7 release, before that Vista x64 and have never had a problem with it. I'm currently using the the latest version - iTunes 10 (64-bit) without issue.

But as Airbot has suggested... you can't install iTunes 32 bit on Win 7 64-bit.

Also....

Have you tried removing this program to see if it is in fact causing your problems???
