Hello. I'm trying to update iTunes. It keeps running into errors. Any advice on how I might get the update to work?

 

Thanks.

 

Error message was error writing to C:\Config.msi\53e15da.rbf

How are you updating? Using Apple Updater that came with iTunes? Or downloading it again from Apple's website?

I tried using Apple's updater then I downloaded and tried to manually install. Neither works. Ran into the same error message.

Thanks. I've read through that page several times and tried the fixes there. None worked. The command string I was asked to type was not valid

Have you tried uninstalling iTunes completely and then reinstalling it?

If I uninstall and reinstall my music will be unaffected, correct?

If I recall correctly, I believe so. To be on the safe side, however, I would backup your iTunes folder. It should be at the following location:

C:\Users\<username>\My Music\iTunes\
