    I had to do a fresh install on my computer to setup a Windows 7 PC (and of course took backups)




    Status quo is this:
    • I can see ipad apps in Windows explorer
    • Itunes is pointing to that directory
    • I still have all my apps on the pad, but
    • I see no apps in itunes
    I had to reinstall winddow 7 a few times, and everytime I reintalled itunes it all came back to life. This time, same process, but for some reason, I see no apps.

    If I double click any an app file in windows explorer, that app will show up in iTunes. Very strage. Should I double click on each app??

    Not sure how to move forward. I do not want to sync my ipad and i'm sure it well get clearef out.

    I also have an issue with Activate/Deactivate this compter. in my previous troubleshooting to date, I used up some actications- I only have two shots leflt. Both menu itesm are available.

    Any suggestions??

    Let me ask this.. how do I contact Apple by email if I get in real trouble?

    2) Can someone please advise what the last subdirectroy is supposed to be in the path? iie \iTunes or \iTunes\Media etc etc .

    Thans apple 2001.

    I found the structurd , and I see they changed the strucutre in later upgrades just to make this all the more frustrating.

    Ref: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2741246?start=0&tstart=0

    Slowly rebuiliding things to get it to work ; they make it so unnecesarrily convoluted and difficult.

    After a re-install and some file/folder movement, I now have the right structure and I can see my apps in itunes. But I can see how it will arrrange them as I have not connected the ipad yet.

    Where does iTunes store the screen layout?

    I have all my apps nested in menus....and I would imagine a fresh install of course had no nesting... will my layout, as I now see it on the ipad, be wiped out as soon as I resync? I have backups, so is there a specific file I should be looking for?
