Windows 7: iTunes 9.0 Compatability Issue

iTunes 9.0 Compatability Issue

I recently installed iTunes 9.0 and it does work, but before it loads I am getting a message indicating iTunes.exe is configured to run in Compatibility Mode for a previous version of windows. The check box for compatability mode on the itunes.exe file properties isn't checked?

Again, it does run, but the message is annoying.


Any ideas?

Try completely removing it and reinstalling, because I have it running on mine with no problems.

Any ideas?
What ver. of windows are you operating? X64 or 86?
What ver. of ITunes did you download and attempt to install?
If you had a previous ver. of ITunes running chances are you will need to perform a complete un-install of the following files:
  • Bonjour
  • Apple Mobile support
  • ITunes
  • Quicktime
  • ITunes updater
Anything Apple related will need to go.
Let us know the first 2 questions and then we can proceed.

did you upgrade from a previous OS? Did you install itunes in compatibility mode?

My Win 7.0 install was not an upgrade but a fresh install. I am running iTunes v9.0 (x64). I may have installed it in compatability mode but am not sure. I did have a hard time trying to install it. It took 2 or 3 attempts to uninstall then reinstall before it would load.

Is anything listed in event viewer (type event viewer in search)go to the windows logs, application tab. Look for errors (red "X" in left hand column) that have Itunes listed and let us know the event ID and source.

thanks
