Windows 10: iTunes fails to install Solved

    iTunes fails to install

    I am trying to install iTunes 12.2.1 on Windows 10 Pro. During installation I get two errors, I believe they are connected. I am running this as Administrator from a User account. I have also tried running it with Windows 7 compatibility checked, same result.

    This is the first error:

    The installation continues for a little bit, then it throws this error:

    At this point the installation fails.

    My brother is in an identical situation; both of us have identical machines, upgraded from Windows 7 (where iTunes worked) to Windows 10, did a system refresh, and encountered this problem. Installing either version 11 or 10.7 do not throw either of these errors, however upon launch, it said it was not installed properly and would need to be reinstalled.

    Thanks for any assistance in advance.

    I had the same problem after resetting my laptop. i.e. a clean install.

    Cannot install itunes v12.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 | Apple Support Communities

    I installed Microsoft Visual C++ Service Pack 1

    Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update from Official Microsoft Download Center

    I can now install the latest iTunes 12.3.1 for Windows (64-bit).
