Over this last weekend I installed the current version of iTunes on to my Windows XP system and half way expecting an error of some kind while installing the Quick time part of the install package. Luckily that there was no problem while the installation took place.
If you want to know what I’m talking about please take a look at this post. Not that I mind using the Windows
OS, it can be a pain.
I finally got a new LCD display for the Windows PC which is nice, now there could be more than one person on-line at the same time on the home network (or LAN). Now all I need to do now with my Windows PC is to add a second hard drive primarily for the itunes library and to place future application that would take up more than what I have on my C drive.
I’m glad that Apple fixed the Quicktime install part of the iTunes 7.6 installation.
bye for now….
When installing updates to programs on a computer whether its a Windows PC or on a Macintosh computer there’s always a chance that any upgrade would go wrong. I got around upgrading iTunes to version 7.5 on my Windows PC and after the installer updated Quicktime I kept getting errors that were important iTunes files that weren’t found in order to run. After looking in the support forums on Apple’s website and from what I could tell that there seems to a problem with part of the update installation package. While reading the posts on the iTunes forum it seemed – to me at least – that the problem lied with the Quicktime installation of the iTunes package.
It seems that the only way to “fix” this problem if upgraded to iTunes 7.5 while getting various errors is to downgrade to install an earlier version of Quicktime – like version 7.2 – I think is the last version that is / was available.
The thing is that I didn’t get any errors while upgrading iTunes on my MacBook Pro lapto. It also seems like that 9 out of 10 times there are no problems while the remaining time there is a problem while upgrading software and or hardware. But then I never really liked to get my hands “dirty” that much while doing upgrades in some matter on my computers whether its my Macintosh computers or my PC.
These problems happened after I got my PC back from the repair shop, while this problem while upgrading to the current version of iTunes I thought to myself that I don’t need to take the computer back into the repair shop just yet. The only “major” things to do on my PC is get another hard drive (larger hard drive – like around 500GB – would be nice), and get some expansion ports put in, and a new video card too. But those upgrades would have to wait. Though I would have preferred to have or get things done at the same time but things like this never do, and yet it might be to much to do everything at once. After doing this next set upgrades would be it for my PC in regards to hardware upgrades.
Though I’m thinking of getting a new Windows PC at some point over the next couple of years but at this point I’m not certain if its going to happen. If I do get a new PC, I think I would try to get a mid-range system that would have a number of possible upgrades that I could do, I’ll just see what happens over the next couple of years about getting a new PC.
bye for now
