Hello experts,

This error came up when I attempted to install iTunes:

  • “VBScripts required for this application”

Where do I find this VBScript? I cannot understand this. I thought installing iTunes is not that complicated.

Please help. Thanks a lot.

Do the following to resolve this error:

  1. Install the latest VBscript engine from Microsoft. You can find it here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1331
  2. If the VBscript is already installed, you then need to register it. For Windows 2000 or XP, go to Start and Run. In the Run window, type regsvr32 vbscript.dll and click Ok. For Windows Vista or 7, you need to open the command prompt but make sure you run it as system administrator. Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll in the command prompt and press Enter. For both cases you should get a message saying vbscript.dll succeeded. If you get an error: error code 0x80004005, that means you failed to run the command prompt as administrator.
 
After registering the VBscript, then try to install iTunes again. Hope that helps!

This error normally happens when installing iTunes on 64-bit Microsoft Windows Vista. If you have this, here’s how to go around it. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, right-click “Command Prompt” and then select “Run as administrator”. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “cd\windows\syswow64” then hit Enter. For example:

CD\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64

Next, type without quotes “regsvr32 vbscript.dll” then hit Enter. This registers the Visual Basic Script on your computer. Now, download and install the latest iTunes on your computer. Once iTunes is installed, in the command prompt, type without quotes “regsvr32 /u vbscript.dll” then hit Enter. This will then unregister the Visual Basic Script on your computer. And that’s it.
