    I'm getting the same error. Apple's website says:

    "Error 3194: Resolve error 3194 by updating to the latest version of iTunes. "This device is not eligible for the requested build" in the updater logs confirms this is the root of the issue. For more Error 3194 steps see: This device is not eligible for the requested build above."

    This obvously doesn't help.

    Here's the retore log:

    Solution!

    Clear out your hosts file ("C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\") from any iTunes/Apple redirects, then reboot your system (required). My restore worked perfectly.

    what do you mean clear out? I have the following files in the etc folder

    hosts
    hosts.umbrella
    imhosts.sam

    Delete all three? then restart windows?
