ITunes Error 126 in Windows 7, 8, 8.1

ITunes Error 126 in Windows 7, 8, 8.1

Error 126 occurs in Itunes when you are either trying to open, install or re install itunes on a Windows platform. The error seems to be related to .Net Framework 4, as well as perhaps some DIVX incompatibility.

in order to resolve the issue:
  1. un-install any apple products on your system (start -> control panel -> programs and features). What you are looking for here is anything that says "Apple Inc." in the Publisher Column. Dont forget things like Quicktime, Bonjour and ICloud. Also note that you DO NOT have to delete your ITunes Music for this.

2. Make Sure that the following files \ folders have been removed have been removed (if you had a custom install location please refer to that location)
  • C:\Program Files\Bonjour
  • C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple
  • C:\Program Files\iTunes
  • C:\Program Files\iPod
  • C:\Program Files\QuickTime
  • C:\Windows\System32\QuickTime
  • C:\Windows\System32\QuickTimeVR
3. Update your Windows .Net Framework 4 ( you can also do this at the start if you like). the best way to do this is via windows update. You may also want to update your DIVX installation at this time as well.
4. Begin re installing Apple software, starting with Apple Quicktime. Once that is installed, start with ITunes and the other apple products that you need.
