    I've read several posts already - maybe missed this one - have to upgrade to iTunes/QuickTime 7.02 (or whatever it's called) for my new iPod. Had iTunes and QT already installed for my nano and worked just fine. Ran MS installer util, MS cleaner util, killed from regstry and every where else to do clean install. Status gets to "Registering Modules" and hangs. Even when tried to install with or without QT portion. Only way to kill the install is with Task Mgr and kill all msiexec's that are running. Can't even re-install old iTunes/QT, get Error 1608: unable to create install driver instance, return code: 2147024894. Totally ticked off. Please any help before I burn this thing at our next drill at the firehouse....

    I believe that Apple still uses the InstallShield installer for iTunes. Maybe this information from InstallShield will offer a solution...

    Thanks, I'll try it, but I think that I stumbled upon a possible problem - The WMI shows as being possibly corrupted. Now I'm in deep.

    I tried reading some information about WMI problems and started getting a headache trying to figure what it was all about. You may want to consider asking (click on red triangle above your post) a mod to move this topic to the Windows OS forum with a reworded subject or start a new topic in that forum.
