Problems with iTunes re-Setup - "there is a problem with this Windows Installer package"

I tried to re - install iTunes with the latest version because I had received an "error 7" message instead of iTunes. You had covered the steps to uninstall and reinstall iTunes by removing iTunes, Quicktime, and other applications on my computer. I had uninstalled iTunes and Quicktime, but when I tried to uninstall the Apple software update, I get the following error message:

"There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your supplier of staff or the package of support ".

How am I supposed to fix my problem with iTunes, so I can download music if I couldn't uninstall programs I need to uninstall? Can I try reinstalling iTunes at the moment? Please let me know what I can or can't do.

Specific file names are mentioned in the error messages?

Here is the standard advice for dealing with problems of installation of iTunes.  Because you are having trouble to uninstall one or more of these applications, you must use Windows Installer Cleanup mentioned below or Free Revo Uninstaller to uninstall applications difficult.

Caution: Cleanup utility Windows Uninstaller has been removed from Microsoft download servers because sometimes it seems more removed he was supposed to (I believe this was linked to Office uninstall).  You can still get Windows Installer Cleanup here--> http://majorgeeks.com/Windows_Installer_CleanUp_Utility_d4459.html utility if you use it, you must create a restore point from the system first (or back up the registry with C:\WINDOWS\ERUNT).  An image full disc would be safer if you have this ability.

If these steps do not help, ask for help in the Apple forum: https://discussions.apple.com/community/itunes/itunes_for_windows?view=discussions&tagSet=1234#/
*****************************

Have you tried completely removing all software related to iTunes and files, allowing you to perform a "clean installation" of iTunes? It comes to my technique proposed, taken from the article in Support of Apple HT1926.

Go to control panel > Add/Remove programs
Remove these applications:
1 Apple Software Update
2. Apple Mobile Device Support
3 Hello
4 iPod for Windows (this may or may not exist, be it, it is not necessary, then we can remove it)
5 iTunes
6 QuickTime

Open my computer > C: > Program Files
Delete this files (if present)
1 iPod
2 iTunes
3 QuickTime

Empty your temp directory:
Open my computer > C: > Documents & Settings > username > Local Settings and delete the contents of the folder called "Temp".

If you don't see the local settings, enable hidden files:
Tools > Folder Options > view tab
Select Show Hidden Files & folder, and then click OK

Once this file is empty, restart the computer

Download & install the Windows Installer Cleanup utility:
http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/290301/
Launch the utility: start > programs > Windows Installer Clean Up
Select one of the applications mentioned above and click on remove

Restart the computer
Download & reinstall iTunes from here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

    For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates.

    The steps described in the second case are a guide to remove everything related to iTunes and then rebuild what is often a good starting point, unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

    Review the other boxes and other support documents list to the bottom of the page, in case one of them applies.

    More information area has direct links with the current and recent buildings if you have problems to download, must revert to an older version or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit-for old video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with QuickTime software or a third party.

    Backups of your library and device should be affected by these measures but there are links to backup and recovery advice there.

  • Windows Vista home Premium 32 bit SP2: iTunes 10.1: there is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run.

    I worked on it for about 3 days now. It's driving me crazy. I tried everything I could find to try to solve this problem.

    When installing iTunes it stops and a box will then appear to me said "there is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support provider or package. "No error message or anything, that's all I get. When I hit the only button I can hit the OK button, it continues to install QuickTime. Sometimes, it will install the iTunes file and the shortcut, but the shortcut does never work and the iTunes file is always empty. I have download the installer directly from Apple.com and save to the desktop, a new copy after each test (just in case).

    Here is a list of what I've tried:

    Yes, I am the administrator of the computer with admin abilities, yes I checked run this program as an administrator. I also made sure to stop all this as possible could interfere with the instillation, including my anti virus and what not even before I tried a clean boot.

    Is there anything else I can try?

    Hi once again, fortunately today I bring better news! As a result of a serious lack of assistance from Apple themselves, have no idea of "The Tech Guys" in the world PC and extremely unnecessary hours at Microsoft, I've sorted it me. In other words, the main problem with mine was the Apple Software Updater. Even with "Revo" I was unable to remove it. I decided to download "Windows Installer Clean Up" from there where I could find (it was also free!). I used it and immediately found, I could choose the Apple Software Updater and remove it with very little hassle in all. I proceed to download the new iTunes, and I'm a very happy Bunny! Thanks for nothing, Microsoft and Apple! Hope this helps - Dan
