Even I am facing the same issue and have been trying to fix it for a couple of months now. I have just now checked your question but I dont see a solution that anyone has provided yet. I have successfully been using Itunes for years, and have never had an issue until I recently tried to install this update. Can anyone please help me as well. Thanks

RE: iTunes install error

To solve this issue, first of all uninstall quicktime manually by going through ad or delete programs. After that reinstall quicktime from the itunes website and once you have done this, your itunes will work properly again.

Even I am having the same problem, what is wrong with the Quicktime installation? I am getting the below error messages:
Error Code: -3
1603
1722

I have searched for solutions on the web but nothing seems to be working for me? Does anyone have any clues on how to solve this issue? THanks.

Follow the below steps to solve this issue:
  1. First of all install Service Pack 2 onto Windows XP.
  2. After that remove any versions of iPod for Windows on the machine, they didn't all want to come off.
  3. Install from the CD that came with the iPod or any other apple device.
  4. Try to startup iTunes and got the error message.
  5. Install QuickTime from version at http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...cktime703.html
  6. Start up iTunes, and there will be no more message
