The only idiot is the one who hasn't upgraded their OS yet.

This will be my last post on this, bottom line is your complaint is ridiculous. You're running an outdated OS. Expecting support for it and getting angry there is none is ludicrous.

Haha so many people arguing ^.^....maybe Apple just created the 64 bit version for the hell of it? Or maybe...they got bored? Who cares.

I have found that iTunes for Windows 7 64 bit crashes ALL the time. If any one has some suggestions (other than reinstalling as I have tried that many times) it would be appreciated.
I never had a problem with my XP laptop but my PC win7 64 iTunes SUCKS.

Okay the 32 bit version does not install on Windows XP 64bit. My whole point is apple was stupid never to put out a version for XP X64. Why would I upgrade when my computer runs perfectly fine on XP X64? I cannot think of a good reason to upgrade (downgrade) to Windows 7 because 7 sucks. It doesn't matter because my laptop has XP 32bit and I can run iTunes on there but it's still stupid for Apple not to have released a version for XP 64bit. So call me ludicrous for not upgrading to a POS OS I really don't care. Okay now lets all go back to the main topic because no one here seems to understand my point since I'm the only one in the world running Windows XP 64bit. So Apple, what are you going to tell someone that just bought a $829 iPad and can't activate it since you can't install iTunes?

Windows System Requirements
PC with USB 2.0 port
Windows 7; Windows Vista; or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 3 or later
iTunes 10.2 or later recommended
(free download from Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now)
iTunes Store account
So junior, where does it say it requires XP 32 bit only?

So son, if you didn't notice where it says (let me bold it for you):
Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 3 or later
So while it does not clearly state that it requires a 32 bit OS, it also clearly states you needs Windows XP running SP3 or later which, XP 64 is clearly not.
Why not also cry that Apple didn't come out with iTunes for Microsoft DOS?
07-21-2011, 01:03 AM #33
So where does it state that Windows XP X64 is not supported? And no daddy I'm not crying because I have 2 other computers that are XP 32 bit. So in those system requirements where does it say that Windows Vista X64 and Windows 7 X64 is supported? And no I'm not crying I'm simply arguing my point that Apple is stupid for not making iTunes compatible with XP X64 even though I'm the only one in the world that's running Windows XP X64. So what now Dad?
07-21-2011, 01:15 AM #34
Seriously? Are you just dense or something?
SP3! It clearly states you need service pack 3. Microsoft never released SP3 for XP 64bit. It doesn't state 64 bit for Vista or Windows 7 because obviously regardless of what version of Vista or 7 you are running, iTunes is supported on those OS's.
Is it really that hard to comprehend? Seriously?
And no it's not stupid for them. It would be stupid for them to program and allocate resources to iTunes for Microsoft DOS or any other obsolete OS that clearly is not supported by even Microsoft. While you may not be the only one using XP 64 you are definitely in the minority.

Would you buy a dsl modem if no company in your area supplies dsl? Would it be the cable company's fault for supplying cable instead of dsl so you can use the dsl modem?
They don't support XP 64 bit. It's as simple as that. If you don't like it, don't buy Apple products. If you insist on buying an Apple product, you will need to meet it's requirements to use it. The world does not revolve around you. The majority of users out there use XP 32 bit, Vista, or 7. It's that simple.

Geez all this fighting! Everyone relax!! Everyone raging over a 64-bit version of iTunes, and it's compatibility and or superiority with opposing OS's! Relax!
iTunes is a apple product, yet they (apple) are responsible for making it work correctly on any system / OS they deem viable....such as Windows, which they are doing, and continue to do. Apple continues to update iTunes for windows for one reason...most iTunes users are windows users.
Obviously, with iOS devices, apple is converting users faster than a Casey Anthony jury comes to a verdict. So who knows how much longer windows users will receive support / updates from apple. My guess is not that long. The cloud is the first step...PC free iDevices, eliminating the middle man (PC) from iOS life. It's genius!
My advice for those that have Windows XP 64-bit and want to enjoy iTunes on windows in 64bit .... Why don't u try and google "Windows 7 64-bit torrent"!!El Zurdo

But at least I can go to the store and see the vastly larger selection of Mac software... er sorry, wrong again, I mean Windows software.
But at least Mac's can run Windows - which strangely enough seems to be the primary thing Mac users buy it for....well that and mice with more than one button...
As for the XP 64-bit argument....
I'm a die hard Windows users and I have to say to you all... are you serious? XP 64 has never been a viable consumer or frankly anybody platform. If you are running XP 64bit and haven't moved to Windows 7 64bit you deserve not having better software.

I have XP on all of my computers and will avoid Windows 7 as much as I can. I simply don't like it and think it's junk plain and simple but that's just me. I do have 2 computers that have 8GB of RAM and in order to utilize it I need a 64bit version of XP. Luckily the other computers are the 32bit version so I can at least update software on my iPad and put my multimedia on it. Bottom line is I should not have to upgrade/downgrade to Windows 7 just to accommodate Apple or to use their products. I have not had any issues at all with XP x64 so if it's not broke then don't fix it.
