Mi equipo tiene iTunes y hoy se instaló la actualización 18.104.22.168. Como siempre, fue rápido y luego de resetear el equipo como lo solicitó la aplicación, abrí iTunes.
Desafortunadamente no funciona. Aparecen mis columnas y cuando selecciono una canción, el reproductor no se mueve. Ya revisé que y está instalado en la carpeta Programas y no en Programas (x86)
Antes de la actualización a Windows 10 mi equipo usaba Windows 7.
Qué debo hacer?
My computer has iTunes 22.214.171.124 and today the update was installed. As always, it was quick and easy. After resetting the equipment as requested by the application, I opened iTunes.
Unfortunately not working. My columns appear and when I select a song, the player does not move.
I checked it and it is installed in the Programs folder and not in Programs (x86)
Before upgrading to Windows 10 my computer was using Windows 7.
What should I do?
did you reboot your PC?

I got this error message when I tried to install iTunes 12.3:
“There’s a problem with windows installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.”
I’m using Windows 10.
Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks! 🙂
check that iTunes is installed in the correct folder: …\Program Files\iTunes and NOT …\Program Files (x86)\iTunes.
Do you have another Windows running on a second partition?
I have been unable to purchase anything or even update apps since iTunes update to 12.3 – latest email from Apple support (after they spent and hour remotely accessing my PC) says: I understand that your issue is not yet resolved, as you have Windows 10, which is not yet compatible with iTunes 12.3
They go on to suggest that I should contact Microsoft
