What is up with this ?
If your computer isn’t fast and doesn’t have an ssd iTunes can take 8-10 min to install
My computer is fast. I have a SSD.
How long has that window appeared without any progress?
There's alternatives here...
5 to 10 minutes.
I’m fresh out of ideas hah, never seen an issue installing iTunes tbh. They need to kill the dinosaur and give us a modern UWP app.
Only 5 or 10 minutes? Be patient. Give it a chance to either finish, or stop with an error message of some kind.
lol I done this 100s of times. It has never taken more than 2 minutes.
So, you have never (ever) had a software install on Windows stop responding?
Seems a good chance for a "Cancel, uninstall (or restore), and try the install again (?)
Weird installed fine on my Windows 7 machine. I have a feeling the security updates for Windows 10 messed up something maybe. I could be wrong.
My Windows 10 Home machine won't install iTunes anymore.
The problem is my Windows 7 machine is old and slow. Still took less time though than 5 or 10 minutes to install.
Anyway guess I got to make a Windows 7 VM on my main computer to use iTunes for now.
Hmmm.... why would you need a Windows 7 VM?
Just tried installing latest iTunes 12.7.2, 64bit on my Win10 bootcamp. I am running latest version 1709 for Windows 10 with most current patches (double checked in Windows update to make sure about that)
I have Apple Software Update app on the system, which came from the Boot Camp install, but had never installed iTunes until now. I did not use the Apple update app for that, but downloaded the iTunes installer app.
Installed easily, within a couple of minutes. Just like you would expect.
Did you try installing iTunes through the Apple Software update app? That would be an alternative. I don't know if it would make a difference. Also, have you tried the troubleshooter in Windows settings, in the Windows Update window? That can adjust compatibility settings for apps running in Windows, and maybe would be helpful to get your Windows system running properly.
iPad's don't support iTunes
cool.... You would be correct.
But, OPs question is about installing iTunes on Windows 10, which isn't supported on iPad, either.
OP still asked the question, posted in the wrong area. So, help is good!
Have you tried selecting the installer file, right-clicking, and selecting "Run as administrator"? I've had to do that at times even though mine is an admin account.
