iTunes and Vista

#1
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?

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

Re: Same problem // iTunes and Vista

Hmm, interesting reply/retort, as it is, from Dana. It would have been more
tactful, polite, and beneficial to someone who is visiting this particular
discussion page in hopes of finding answers to a problem situation which
obviously involves Microsoft's part in it.
Scott, I am having the same issue almost verbatim with your initial
question regarding the itunes program no longer functioning on my p.c. which
runs on Microsoft Vista Home Premium. This is the main reason I am checking
out these posts. The error message that pop's up after trying to open the
itunes program, and specifically mentions "Windows (a Microsoft product) will
close the program and notify me if a solution is available". That didn't
work. I've searched for answers within the Apple site, to no avail, as well,
since ipod is one of their products.
Have also removed the itunes program and reinstalled the latest itunes
version 7.3.1 on-line a couple times, but still no greenlight.
So Scott, were you able to get an answer to this problem? Please let know
if you have. This applies to anyone else who has something actually helpful
to say... with an actual answer. Thanks in advance. Tony
