Why wont Apple iTunes install correctly

Running Window 7 With SP1 +all latest updates (100+)

Got notice that Apple wanted to update iTunes to 12.1.1 plus Quicktime7 +


I said OK for iTunes install. then iTunes seemed to install OK.  Then I got error message about Assembly Microsoft.VC80.CRT with code HRESULT 0x80070BC9.

I uninstalled iTunes (with Windows 7 Uninstaller)  then reinstalled iTunes  Same error.

Saw Forum message to said to try reregistering vbscript,  Tried same result

Any help would be appreciated.

Try the following routine to uninstall and then reinstall iTunes.

Control Panel > Programs and Features:

Uninstall the following in order as shown:

iTunes
Quick Time
Apple Software Update
Apple Mobile Device Support
Bonjour
Apple Application Support

Restart the computer.

Remove the folder:

C:\Users\jdhurst\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes

Now download the latest version of iTunes from Apple install the latest version of iTunes

I have iTunes 12.1.1.4 that updated and installed fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

Hi
I followed your instructions.
BUT I had  no iTunes or Quicktime listed in uninstaller and Apple mobil devices support would not go away

But I did what I could  and iTunes 12/1/1/4 did install and is now operational

Thank you for you help
