    Default Windows 7 error messages in 64-bit iTunes 9.0.2 persist...

    Alright, so I'm very happy with my switch to the iPhone platform. I use the latest 64-bit version of iTunes, v9.0.2, on my Windows 7 64-bit Lenovo ThinkPad. Every time I click on the "Info" tab within iTunes (the 2nd from the left, between Summary and Applications), I am still getting three small pop-up notification windows, all three of which only say "Error", and I am forced to click OK three times to make them go away. That's all it says....every time. I have used iTunes 8.x in 64-bit before version 9 came out, and under Vista 64-bit, there was never a problem.

    Also, the 64-bit iTunes 9.0.2 still installs itself in the 32-bit "Program Files(x86)" folder, instead of the 64-bit "Program Files" folder. I can manually change the install destination, but doing so does not seem to make any difference. It certainly does not alleviate the issue. I checked Task Manager, and both iTunes, along with "Bonjour", "iTunesHelper", and the rest of the Apple services that run in the background all run in 32-bit mode.

    Does anyone get the same errors, which don't seem to have a negative impact, other than being annoying...?

    I'm using 64 bit W7 with no issues. Have you tried reinstalling iTunes?

    I have iTunes installed on a Win7 64 bit system (not my main system, and it does not sync with my phone per se but is used merely as backup to my home desktop), and I don't see errors like this. The 64 bit version of iTunes is really still a 32 bit program. The only difference I saw was the driver that is installed to make the iPhone/iPod accessible is 64 bit. So it will install into the x86 program files directory; just the driver which allows the system to see the device is 64 bit.

    I get those popups when updating apps. Takes 3 clicks of update all to get it done. I'm sure i could reinstall and whatever, but the effort isn't worth it yet.

    I did get a second 2 tb drive and moved the itunes library to it. I'm on windows 7 64bit.

    The 64-bit version of iTunes isn't really 64 bit. It's 32-bit using a 64-bit driver for burning functionalities. That's why you see it in the x86 directory. As for your issue. Remove all traces of iTunes and reinstall it.
