    Unable to install iTunes on Win8 RTM


    Hi All,

    Has anyone successfully installed iTunes on Win 8 RTM? It worked fine on the preview editions, but fails every time o. RTM. I've tried installing it using Win7 and Vista compatibility with no luck. It seems to fail when the install program tries to start the Apple services. Something must have changed between the CP and RP to RTM but I'm stumped as to what.

    Any ideas are appreciated. FYI the Apple forums haven't turned up anything useful other than Windows 8 hatred from the fanboys.

    Did you do anything special to your Win8 configuration? Disable UAC? Change security settings, etc?
