Try this:

Open regedit go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS and remove PendingXmlIdentifier, NextQueueEntryIndex, AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide\Winners\x86_policy.8.0.microsoft.vc80 & vc90 entries…

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\DerivedData\Components\x86_policy.8.0.microsoft.vc80 & vc90 entries

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS\WINNER\Components\x86_policy.8.0.microsoft.vc80 & vc90 entries.

Then run services.msc and set "Windows Module Installer" to auto and restart it. Reboot.

Then uninstall iTunes, install that VC2005 link I provided you earlier, and reinstall iTunes.

I gets errors still even with these installed. Also with the customized itunes installer

I wasnt sure how the icloud worked. Does it backup the songs I bought in iTunes too ?


Any purchase, app or song, is remembered by itunes and is able to re-download again from the itunes server. So it's not 'backed up' per say but rather the system remembers your settings and then just re-downloads when needed. What is backed up to icloud is pics, sms/imessages, call history, and ios device settings. Also any app that uses icloud can back up their settings to it.

Thanks, but I cant find the COMPONENTS folder in the regedit. I did the rest and installed the vc2005 thing, but got the same error message. :s

Edit> I found the components now, but not the winner folder.
