Itunes Can't Uninstall
So today for some reason itunes would not open. It says in a box " This Action is only valid for products that are currently installed." Well it is installed. So I tried just reinstalling it. It says " The older version of Apple Software Update cannot be removed. Contact Your technical support group." which is now you guys. I then tried to uninstall itunes by going into control panel/add remove/itunes no luck and it gives me this message " The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click Ok to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'itunes.msi' in the box below" this box has 2 choices both which do not work. If it would help to post those choicxes i can but im lazy right now. Anyway how could i possibly uninstall itunes now? P.S. it is itunes 7
Thanks to all those who can help.

Awe man. I just checked and Had the same problem with the quicktime player and apple software updater. Can someone please help?

See if you can use Windows Installer Clean-up utility; just google it.

I had the same problem a few months ago, if memory serves me correct, that's what I used. Once it cleaned the old files, installation went without a hitch.

Thumbs up It Works
I just wanted to say that i have been dealing with this same issue for 4 months now and have been resorting to booting into another operating system to get iTunes to work. which has been so frustrating for me because i run a digital surveillance system on this pc and while in the other operating system i could not record video I tried this and it finally works THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Hey i just wanted to say thank you. I had the same problem and I've been dealing with it for about a week now, and it was horrible that i couldn't have itunes. (since windows media player sucks so bad) i basically couldn't listen to music or update my ipod shuffle, and that was pretty bad. But now its fixed thanks to using the Windows Installer Clean Up Utility. And it couldn't have been easier

i have a similiar problem to this...
my iTunes will not update. i am on iTunes 7.3 and it won't update to 7.5, it gives me the same thing "The older version of Apple Software Update cannot be removed. Contact Your technical support group."
i have been trying to update iTunes, because i have another problem.
my iPod, when plugged into the computer, shows that it has songs on it and everything, but when i unplug it from the computer, it is empty. i have already restored the iPod, and put all of the songs back on, and still, i am getting nothing on the iPod itself, but everything still shows up in the library.
i don't understand this at all, and i've done everything that i could find to fix it, can someone help?
also, i am using a video iPod 30GB

Exclamation I need help!
I got a new 80gb video ipod classic. I needed to install a newer version of itunes (7.4 or higher). My computer wouldn't let me though. So i uninstalled itunes and reinstalled an earlier version of itunes hoping to be able just to update itunes..that didn't work. Now when i try to open itunes a page pops up. I can either : Save... or agree or decline. I always hit agree and then it says : The file "iTunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes. Then I tried to just install iTunes 7.6 and it starts to upload the file and then a thing pop ups and says :The older version of Apple Software Update cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group.


Any ideas?

I didn't realize that this thread started over a year ago. Glad to see it helped a few people.

As for the recent post, have you tried using the Windows Installer Clean-up utility?

I just googled for it and it came up first on the list. Can be found here; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

The download link is about 1/2 way down the page.

Run the clean-up program and look for iTunes on the list. Highlight itunes on the list and have the program remove itunes. Then reinstall itunes.
