Win-8 Install was a breeze until – Apple. iTunes ver 10.7 and 11.2 when trying to sync Outlook simply run processor to 98% and sit there with disnoted.exe, Outlook sync and one other apple program I can’t identify sucking up all of that 98%. No syncing of Outlook calendar or Outlook contacts happens. It just sits in this loop for as long as you let it. I let it run 2 hours once just to be sure the first “sync” wasn’t the particular issue. iTunes will backup the iPhone and the apps. Just not Outlook

I tried installing in Win-7 and XP-SP3 compatibility. Same problem as described above.

11.2 will work on Win-7 on another Toshiba Tecra of the same age, but it occasionally locks the machine. (BRS reset to get it back.)

Naturally it works on XP and has for months.

Other than iTunes, all other programs, including 16 bit legacy, which I need, ran fine and had no issues with Win-8 GUI. In about 1 hours I knew it fine. Don’t know what the hubbub is about with some about the GUI.

Any rumors of a fix for this iTunes issue?
