Fix iTunes on Windows XP

Mar 18, 2011 by

Some people running Windows XP 32-bit may have noticed when they have upgraded iTunes, that it doesn’t work.

I have searched long and hard for a viable solution, and I have finally found one.

ICU

  1. Terminate all iTunes/Apple related processes using Task Manager.
  2. Go to this site: http://icu-project.org/download/4.0.html#ICU4C
  3. Download icu4c-4_0_1-Win32-msvc8.zip and extract icuuc40.dll.
  4. Navigate to C:\Program\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support\
  5. Drag the new icuuc40.dll into that folder and replace the existing one.
  6. Fire up iTunes and enjoy!

Yes, I searched for this and have finally found it — now on my Windows PC, I don’t know what made me rage more — not having a working iTunes, or having a working iTunes!
