Hi,
I am reinstalling the correct version of itunes so that MM can work (thanks to this thread)- quick question - does iTunes HAVE to be installed on C for MM to be able to use the drivers? I'd love to put it elsewhere as I'm short of space on C and it cloggs up my system (I so Hate ITunes!)

Make sure "Itunes Helper" isn't disabled from "Startup". Press Control-Alt-Delete. Then click Task Manager. Then hit the startup tab. Then make sure "Itunes Helper" is enablled. If not enable it and restart your computer.

That's a bridge that will have to be crossed if this happens. For now MediaMonkey and most others rely on iTunes components to communicate with Apple devices. Note that Google hasn't put this limitation on Android devices.

So, what happens if/when Apple decide to make iTunes only available from the Windows App Store?

Would we have to rely on 3rd party plugins?

Hi,
I highly doubt. Windows Store applications are written for Windows UWP Platform which is independent and unrelated to Desktop App architecture.

So basically UWP apps are incompatible for interactions with Desktop apps and significant work needs to be done in order to support UWP interaction from/to desktop app. To back to my first few words, I highly doubt that Apple will ever invest money and development time just to support third party apps like MediaMonkey when they can simply say "Use iTunes!"

Just curious - are there any plans to fix this? More and more users expect to download apps from the Windows App Store for ease of use, accessibility, and automatic updates.

If iTunes is started (including background) it will block MMW to correctly save synced tracks in iPhone.

I have the exact same scenario as the OP, new Windows 10, iPhone 6s.
I believe I have tried all of the listed fixes and MM still does not recognize me iPhone. I can see it in the Tree, but after I 'send' an album to the phone it says it is synchronizing, but when finished it is not visible on the phone or in the MM 'Apple iPhone' screen.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks-
Jim

64bit version is fine, do make sure you install the full software and not the Windows App version.

The 32 bit installer will not work on a 64 bit OS. Tells the user to download the 64 bit version.

Have you run iTunes since you saw that error?

I am having the SAME problem as the OP! SAME error message, except I am running Windows 7 so iTunes is definitely NOT installed as a store app! I downloaded the iTunes installer a long time ago and have been using it for Media Monkey sync for over a year. Just today, I started getting that error message despite the fact that iTunes is DEFINITELY installed and NOT as a store app.

So the answer does not apply to my case!

You need to use the looking for other versions > Windows section a little lower on the page to get the full desktop version made available for download, instead of the Windows Store version.
