iTunes 7 Problemos

  1. Hi there-
    Just downloaded iTunes 7 along with Quicktime. The download and install appears to be fine. However, once I launch iTunes after the installer I get an error that contains appcompat.txt & iTunes.exe.mdmp.

    I checked the event viewer and here's what it says (all are Application Errors)

    Entry 1:
    Fault bucket 00470146.

    Entry 2 :
    Faulting application iTunes.exe, version, faulting module QuickTime.qts, version, fault address 0x00069b60.

    Entry 3:
    Windows cannot access the file C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\QuickTime.qts for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program QuickTime because of this error.

    Program: QuickTime
    File: C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\QuickTime.qts

    Then, there's a Dr Watson file that says
    The application, C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe, generated an application error The error occurred on 09/14/2006 @ 18:51:59.171 The exception generated was c0000006 at address 66869B60 (QuickTime!DllMain)

    So, I try to uninstall both quicktime & iTunes, and it won't let me do either. I simply get "Fatal Errors", or something along those lines.

    Any ideas?

    I've tried reinstalling each program in a standalone fashion. No dice

    Itunes7 suffers from some serious bugs. See this Techspot article by Justin Mann HERE.

    One more thing...

    I have tried to install all versions of iTunes. The event viewer says it has succesfully installed, but it never runs. I still get that fault bucket error and the "faulting application itunes.exe...etc."

    I've been having the same problems with my Itunes (garbling when other programs are open). Its a pity since the new Itunes looks pretty cool otherwise with the different ways of viewing your music and all. I found this solution through Justin Mann's article (ON Techspot)

    So far it seems to have fixed the problem though I don't realy know what it does, but i think it may bring down the quality of the sound.

    Uninstall Version 7 and use an older version until iTunes version 8 come out.

    7 is bugged.

    try using a registry cleaner to get any crap out.

    Far shot but can't hurt nontheless - reinstall your audio codecs by going into device manager and removeing them, then reboot windows to self-reinstall it again.. but i'm pretty sure that the apple link provided above should work anyways..

    I had the same error “Faulting application iTunes.exe” I tried everything suggested on this post but nothing worked. I took drastic steps to resolve my problems. I searched on all Quicktime files on my machine and deleted all references to it. Next I searched my registry (Click start then run and type REGEDIT) for the same Quicktime keys and deleted all keys with a Quicktime reference. This is obviously dangerous and can render your system useless if you’re not careful. Then I reinstalled the stand alone version of Quicktime and then iTunes to fix my problem. Not for the faint of heart, but “No guts no glory”. I recommend backing up your registery and anything else that’s important to you before deleting keys from the registry.
