itunes updating. I keep getting secunia notification to download 32bit I tunes even though I have 64bit Itunes installed. I continue to get the 32 bit warning daily. I get the downloads from clicking on the Secunia solution button.

I have tried uninstalls and reloading and still go in the same circle. any ideas?

Hello.
Are you using psi with the Advanced interface ?
Is a version of itunes showing in the Patched tab ? And possibly another in the Insecure tab ?
What is the file path to the prog you are having trouble with ?
Please include as much info as possible......OS etc.. Regards

Hi, thanks for the response. I am not an accomplished user. My interface is
"simple" mode. My operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. The I-tunes download is from within the Secunia security warnings section of the PSI window. Although the upgrades to I-tunes is applied, part way into the installation it warns me I needs- to update and refers me to download the 64 bit I-tunes which is already present. This update has been coming through ever since the upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have had the same thing happen about some Adobe Reader upgrade warnings, even though I did update and install but secunia cleared those off my window after a few weeks. The I-tunes update has not gone away for months. Thanks for stopping by.

Okay orejazz.
I'm not very techie; and unfortunately not a Windows7 user either; but I do know that you would be able to gain more info if you switched to the Advanced interface. I can assure you it is not that difficult,
If you decide to go ahead with it, and after you have switched; click on the + sign alongside the insecurity/vulnerability....or any other prog/entry for that matter.....it will then expand to reveal more info including the file path. When you then click on Tech Details it will confirm it. If uncertain how to proceed, post that info back to the forum.....include as much info as possible.
To save you repeating details about your set-up, each time you post....include them in your Signature field as you see mine below.
It is possible that tho' you update progs ( they often leave old files/versions behind): Secunia psi will continue to detect them even if they are in the Recycle bin.
PS...I've got to go now, but I'm sure someone else will pick up the thread if you need any assistance further. Regards

Hi JavaMan;

Mogs is correct, PSI works best in "Advanced Mode" and is easy. So unless you are troubled about it, lets have a go! (I'm on the wrong computer to do this so I have to remember stuff I have prepared on the other, sorry if I screw up.)

=======

To run PSI in "Advanced Mode", click on the PSI icon in the task bar. In the upper right corner is "Advanced" blue or black in color? If blue, click on "Advanced". In "Insecure" tab click on the [+] to the left of the program in question.
In the "Toolbox" for that program click on the "Technical details" icon, this will give us the version # & file path to the program. That is the what & where we need to figure this out. After jotting down the info, click close. Now click on the "Open Folder" icon. That takes you to where PSI sees the problem so you can poke around. Just do not delete anything and you'll be fine.

========

Now you have to tell us what's going on. You have to be our eyes & ears so to speak. Do you see a 16bit & 32bit i-tunes? You can tell (usually) when a file was installed by 'hovering' the mouse arrow over that file.

If you need specific instructions, I should check back tomorrow. Try to tell about what you 'see', but don't worry if it looks like Greek. File path & version # for all i-tunes files will suffice for now.


Regards;

Fred

p.s. Mogs is sounding more 'techie' nowadays. Either he's getting smarter or I'm getting dumber. (both are likely)

Hi,
I followed the instructions and the file path is c:\programfiles\iTunes\iTunes.exe

I opened the folder and found a lot of files. They may have been associated with my original 32bit download. But I am not finding a 32bit version per se.
I hovered on each file. Everything except 2 files were from 2009. There was a file indicating 64bit. my data files from the 32bit version from 2009 were transferred over apparently to my 64bit.

I can probably or should say have to live with the constant warning in the PSI window, it jus bugs me I guess.

Thanks Fred and all others who replied.

@ JavaMan

I use iTunes to update and transfer music & notes to my iphone on my HP win7 64bit.
Click on windows explorer icon in the taskbar and open your C Drive.
You should see “program files “& “program files (x86). In these two folders there Will be an “iTunes “folder. The iTunes in program files is the 64bit and the other iTunes in Program files (x86) is the 32bit.
Also in the C Drive you’ll see a folder “Program Data “ Inside there should be another folder “Apple Computer “and if you open it you should see “Installer cache” .Inside you find “iTunes64.msi and SetupAdmin.exe “.
If you go to download site of iTunes, choose the 64bit, because if you download the 32bit, The program alerts you that “This software is not intended to run on a 64bit platform”.
Go ahead and uninstall iTunes completely then run the new downloaded one and all should be OK.

Good Luck

@javaman, let us know how it turns out, you do not have to live with it. John sounds like he is very familiar with your situation.

@john, thanks!

Mogs, Fred and most of all John

Hearty Thanks. Each of you gave a little key and impetus.

John You were the greatest help.
I followed your instructions. One deviation is I never found a Folder called Program Data.
What I ended up doing is going to i Tunes and downloaded and saved i Tunes 64bit to my desktop. Next I opened Windows Explorer and went to the C drive.
and opened. I went to program files and program files (x86) and deleted the i Tunes folder in each. I checked my Secunia window and the warning was gone. I restarted my computer for peace of mind, then checked the Secunia window and still no warning. I downloaded iTunes64bit setup from the desktop. It downloaded successfully and all my old music files were there.
