What do you mean by it "doesn't come up"? Do you mean the application doesn't launch?

Try doing a clean un-install/re-install. This means booting into Safe Mode, using the Add/Remove Programs Applet in the Control Panel, manually deleteing any remaining iTunes related files and folders, using a Registry Cleaner (download a free trial version of TuneUp if you don't already have one), rebooting and reinstalling a fresh, clean copy of iTunes.

Yeah it doesn't launch. Will it delete my music?

There's really no telling what iTunes will do next. It shouldn't delete your music, but s--t, who really knows?! Have you considered making backup of your music files, say for instance to a secondary hard drive, CD or DVD?

All I can suggest for now is what's in my previous post.

Good luck. Post back with your results.

You don't. This is a 4 year old thread. You may be able to find 6.0.1.3 but it won't connect to the store and if you don't have a library from that version or earlier you can't get it to load.

Try starting a new thread with any error messages you are seeing, what your system is and what versions of iTunes and operating system you have.

We'll go from there.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....
