10-04-2009, 12:58 AM #1Help: iTunes 9 missing CoreGraphics.dll
If anyone can offer a solution to this I would be most grateful.
iTunes won't launch anymore and says that it's missing the file CoreGraphics.dll. It then says to re-install iTunes because it didn't install correctly.
I have tried re-installing/uninstalling/deleting all registry entries and system folders... nothing. I have tried with iTunes versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 with same result. I even tried installing and then uninstalling Safari since I've read that this file is Safari related and has nothing to do with iTunes.
My OS is Windows 7 x64. This started happening after I changed some security settings in windows which I'm unable to reverse. This may or may not have had something to do with it. Anyone with a similar experience?

OKAY! Got it working at last! Here was my problem... while attempting to remove all apple software via Windows control panel I noticed that there were two entries that I couldn't delete/uninstall:
Apple Application Support
Apple Mobile Device Support.
Both of these were looking for a .msi package in a location that no longer existed (c:\Users\<user>\AppData\Temp\IXPxxx.tmp\). I suspected that Apple Application Support was the culprit and needed to reinstall it properly.
1. Download iTunes setup exe
2. Open the exe with WinRAR and extract all contents to a new folder
3. Go into folder and run "AppleApplicationSupport.msi"
4. When windows says it can't find the folder hit "browse" and select the folder you extracted the files to.
5. The installation window should now appear. Choose "Repair" option.
That fixed it for me! I did the same thing with the "AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi" since that appeared to be broken as well and would have resulted in my iPhone not being recognized.
Hope that helped!
