    Ok, so iTunes 8 won't download on windows XP, and I've been told that there are work arounds. I would highly appreciate some help with this issue.

    When I run iTunes 8 setup it just says I downloaded it directly after hitting the install button (no actual installation) and then doesent show up on my computer. I did some research and many people have this issue.

    Im using an iPod Touch 32, and windows XP.

    Thank you :]

    hmm, perhaps your windows xp is not SP3? you need to install service pack 3. it is a major update to xp so you will need to do that. other than that, i don't know what is wrong.

    I've got iTunes 8 on XP with SP2.

    You may need to uninstall ALL Apple software (iTunes, Safari, Quick Time etc) from your PC then restart and re-download iTunes and re-install. Since I had to do this when I had a problem upgrading to an earlier version of iTunes I have not had any further problems.

    Edit: I have a 1st gen touch.

    yep, im using itunes 8 without any trouble with my dad's ipod touch 2G. so it might just be corrupt data or something. so i suggest what big-blue-wolf said to do.
    EDIT: this is on XP
