    i have my ipad3 for a month already and still havent sync my files from my pc to it.So frustrating and really drained about it.
    I used to have itunes on my windows vista laptop home basic.I installed it before when i got my itouch 3G.I just planned to use my itouch for my midi converted to mp3 music programs.So after i have sync the files, i decided i will uninstall itunes.Never thought one day i will have a chance to own an ipad.
    Now here where all my problem begins.Didnt realize that reinstalling itunes back on my laptop will be that complicated.
    Tried reinstalling the latest vesrsion of itunes but with no luck i cant.I asked apple and windows for help and tried many things but still i cant reinstall itunes.
    theres always an error that says:
    "There is a problem with this windows installer package.a program required for this install to complete could not be run.contact your support personnel or package vendor.

    The installer encountered errors before itunes could be configured.
    Errors occurred during installation.your system has not been modified.
    Pls run the installer again or click finish to exit."

    followed the instructions for that error thru apple advice,but still cannot reinstall itunes.I hope somebody can help me about my problem.
    I wonder why apple is too dependent on itunes to sync files for its product.Any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance

    Not sure I can help you personally (I'm still new to this myself) but can you access iTunes from the app on your iPad?

    It sounds to me as if your Windows computer needs an updated installer (in other words, it's not iTunes, it's your computer). Since I'm lazy :))) and don't want to re-type, have a look at post #3 in this thread: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=75974.

    Hope it helps.

    Many things can cause a failed installation.
    Incorrect iTunes for your windows operating system, 32 or 64 bit.
    An incomplete setup or installation that is pending , nothing to do with iTunes.
    Failed uninstall of previous iTunes.
    Antivirus /firewall software could be preventing access to system files
    Windows updates that are half finished
    Vista also has user account control , perhaps it s blocking the installation.
    Corrupt user profile.

    Common misconception is to blame the software product when it is actually a user related issue.

    iTunes is a good way to manage the iDevice hardware and software application, providing a database of your software collection, and making sure the iDevice is up to date, it handles music collections quite well seeing it is free!

    Taking the the previous posters offer to remote connect into your pc and repair is a kind offer, seeing as it will take some effort to fix, word of warning is you don't know the person is so be a bit careful!
    Finally you could try a windows restore to a point prior to you uninstalling iTunes , just make sure your data is backed up before hand.

    Have you tried a system restore? Go back to the restore point before you removed Itunes.

    You can't change the sync partnership to another PC once it has been set up without fully restoring the device and setting it up again using the new PC. Sorry.
    Also, please consider opening your own thread next time. Hijacking other peoples threads is frowned upon and is against our rules. Thanks for your understanding.
