Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello. I’m having problem installing iTunes 10.5.3 with QuickTime.

When trying to install, it always ends up with error 0x8007054F. I used Windows 7 64-bit.

I downloaded the installer in Apple website.

How can I fix it?

Can someone please lend me a hand?

Whenever you're getting installation errors with HRESULT: 0x8007054F, that means there's a Microsoft update that failed to install.

And since you're using Windows 7, you can do that by going to Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsWindows Update or just type in the search box Windows Update. Check what update failed to install. Once you identify the updates, go to the Microsoft and get the appropriate update.

You can do that by going to this link:

If you are getting an error message with 8000FFFF after installing the updates, you need to manually edit your registry.

Follow the manual steps outlined in this article for the detailed instructions:

After that retry installing. Good luck!

Hello Ritchie,

You are getting that error because you are missing a security update’ Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update’ on your computer.

You will therefore need to install it first before you go ahead and install iTunes as well as QuickTime on your computer.

I think no matter how hard you try installing iTunes on your computer you will still end up with that same error. This is because the installer of iTunes that you have is an x86 version which means it is only intended for 32-bit computer architectures.

And since you are using Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit, you are also required to have the 64-bit version of iTunes which didn’t happen when you install it because you downloaded the 32-bit edition.

iTunes supports Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 and up, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7, and Microsoft Windows 8 both 32-bit and 64-bit editions.

And always bear in mind that if you have a 64-bit operating system you also need the 64-bit version of iTunes or iTunes 32-bit for 32-bit operating systems, and vice versa.

Since I think you had a hard time finding where to download the 64-bit version of iTunes, then here it is.

You can download iTunes 11.0.4 64-bit, the latest version from here.
