iTunes on Vista faces trouble

By Justin Mann on February 2, 2007, 10:53 AM
iTunes users beware, the current versions of iTunes are incompatible with Vista, and could result in you not being able to play your music, among very odd behavior from the program itself. As the notice states, Apple is quite aware of the problems, and has posted a rudimentary workaround for some of them, though an actual fix that will give people a straight upgrade path has not yet been posted. They have, however, created a repair tool specifically for Vista that will attempt to fix it.

Hmmm, thats odd. I have been using iTunes on Vista since Beta 2 and the only time it didn't work was when I briefly used the 64bit version.

Same here, although I only use iTunes for transferring music to my iPod and not for playing it or downloading, it works fine.

Yes but that was before the Zune (the iPod "Killer") was a big FAILURE and Microsoft developers were told to mess with code so that iTunes would screw up.Ok... I'm just kidding... or am I???

Unfortunately, I was affected by the itunes problems in vista (ultimate oem). The great news(for me) is that the repair tool fixed all my itunes problems. So now I'm a "happy camper" with itunes.

See, this is all vista does causes problems for the world. what has happened to making things better, like 98-2000 pro. if only MS had the sense to make things better rather than more flashy and slower i think their market will go up.
