I want to download itunes to a PC with windows 7, so I can use an old iphone as a webcam. But apparently, now I have to go through Microsoft for itunes. I have a Microsoft account, but I can't get them to let me add my PC to the account. And I can't get any help from Microsoft.

Hey Cookiegal, that link you provided gives access to the MS Store. Thats what the OP was trying to say - you have to use MS

Well it looks like the PC version is to be from Microsoft Store.
This way Apple does not need to maintain or control the use of the install.

Not for me the link goes to apple and I can download the file from there. Perhaps because I don't have a Microsoft account?

I'm using a 32 bit Win 7 computer. I got to the Apple site, clicked the link for a 32 bit download and it was ready to download with no problem. (Note: I chose not to download it.)

See, it's not just me. :D

I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit and the 64-bit download was ready to save (from apple.com) and install. I already have iTunes so I didn't go through with the installation either.

Yes, I went there and there is nothing that will get me to the download point?

All hot links are to Windows information or the Microsoft Store?

Karen clicked on the blue download now button and I clicked on Download here after the Looking for Windows 32 bit?.
It might be a Windows 10 quirk that we aren't getting.
The OP on Windows 7 should be able to see and click on either link that we can.

I am also using Edge and I checked IE, I get the same.
No link "Download Here"

I also do not have any Apple software installed!

Neither of us are using Edge nor IE. (Since MS won't allow me to purchase 3 more years of support on Windows 7 because I am not a business owner, I see no need to download and install Edge for Windows 7). Karen is using Firefox and I'm using Palemoon.
Do you have a non-MS browser installed? If so, try that.

I just fired up Vivaldi and get the 2 download links showing in that too.
