Answers to Error: itunes downloads but will not install,Hi,
Are you able to install all other porograms?
Follow these methods.
Method 1: Troubleshoot problems installing and uninstalling programs on Windows-based computers
Method 2: Trouble installing iTunes or QuickTime for Windows
If you are still facing the same issue, I would suggest you to post your query in the Apple Support forum.
Use the Sfc tool to repair - itunes downloads but will not install,
System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. This article describes how to run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash.
For Windows 8.1 or Windows 8
- Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, do the following as your appropriate:
- Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search. Type Command Prompt in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
For Windows 10, Windows 7, or Windows Vista
- To do this, click Start, type Command Prompt or cmd in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
- At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
- sfc /scannow
- The sfc /scannow command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder at %WinDir%\System32\dllcache.
- The %WinDir% placeholder represents the Windows operating system folder. For example, C:\Windows.
- Attention please: Don't close this Command Prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after this process is finished.
- Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.
- To resolve this problem, perform the System File Checker scan in safe mode, and make sure that the PendingDeletes and PendingRenames folders exist under %WinDir%\WinSxS\Temp.
Reinstall your System
When you have tried the above methods but can't seem to fix your error, you can reinstall your Operating System and install a "clean" copy of Windows onto your system again. But this should be the last method to fix your error, as this will completely erase everything on your hard disk and it will take you a lot of time to reinstall all your software back to your desktop. It's very important for you to back up all files, pictures and personal information before you do that.
