Default Itunes with Vista 64 bit.

Everytime I start iTunes, I get a message telling me that iTunes did not install properly and that I may not be able to burn CDs. I click "OK" and it works fine. I have redownloaded and reinstalled iTunes but this still pops up. Anyone else using Vista 64 bit have this problem?

Honestly, you should just be happy it installed. Itunes isn't even guaranteed to install, let alone run, on a 64-bit OS.

Yeah, a lot of popular software out there is made for x86 architecture. You can try out Win Amp, which is what a lot of us members here use. Sorry bud, but iTunes is not the most compatible of programs.

I'm happy. I was just wondering whether other people were having this problem. I also think Apple should their asses in gear. A major application like iTunes should support 64 bit OSs by now.

I'm having problems with iTunes on my 32 bit, I couldn't imagine the problems I would encounter on a 64 bit machine. Best thing to do... wait ... then get a 64 bit OS. We need a lot of time for that.

me too. That was the deciding factor when I got my vista. Winamp does the same stuff with Ipods though. Don't know how well it'll work, but it will.
