    iTunes and Vista

    Hi

    I have have installed Vista and iTunes & my Ipod were working OK. Over the
    last week or so, whenever I try to start iTunes, Vista reports that iTunes
    has stopped working and looks for a solution. It cannot find and solution
    and then closes. What makes this strange to me is that it did work and then
    stopped. I have download the 'so-called' fix from Apple with the same
    result. any ideas please

    Well, it's not Microsoft's responsibility to insure a competitor's software
    works, so ask Apple for a fix...

    Has Apple officially released the fix that ends their suggestion to not use
    iTunes with Vista?

    What a swell person you are. How do we know microsoft hasn't contributed to
    the problem. Lets be honest Microsoft has never used its muscle to bully
    anyone. right!! Personally all I want to know is whether Apple is doing what
    they claim to be doing. Working with Microsoft to resolve the problems. I've
    spent enough $$ on MS products and services over the years to deserve an
    answer to that.

    If it was working and then stopped, have you tried to uninstall & reinstall
    the iTunes software? Had you done any updates that week before it stopped
    working?

    Same problem. "iTunes has stopped working." Then I get something about DEP
    has closed iTunes. What gives?

    Re: iTunes and Vista

    Out of curiosity and fear of the unknown, is anyone using the current version
    of iTunes and Vista successfully?

    I purchased a new Vista system recently, and have loaded iTunes. I have
    been monitoring the blogs and update status on both Apple and Microsoft's
    websites.

    I have not yet attempted to connect my iPod to the notebook.

    The Library updated ok, but the response time seems quite slow when
    switching between songs or scrolling through my album library.

    Am I just being silly, or is there cause for concern with the current
    marriage of iTunes and Vista?

    By the way, competition is what it’s all about. Let the battle for the
    "next best thing" rage on!

    Thanks in advance! Bob..............................

    Hey there,

    I have WHP (Windows Home Premium) and iTunes (the latest one on their site)
    I have no problems now, unlike the pain it was under RC2.
    It doesn't hang on syncing either.
    Previously, I found that uninstalling and re-installing both iTunes AND the Updater solved problems.

    Cheers
