Tips & Tricks : iTunes store crashes on Windows 8.1

NOTE: iTunes version or above is free from that issue.

When trying to access iTunes Store from iTunes installed on Windows 8.1 it crashes. Problem is that iTunes can’t find specific DLL which is used to display content of the store.

In order to fix problem cop: QTMovieWin.dll

from:  C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support

to: C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes

and now you can access iTunes Store without any problems on Windows 8.1.


How-to : Relocate iTunes folders to different drive/partition


Using any of the iDevices with PC computer with Windows 7 will enfornce us to use iTunes as application which can synchronize content of a device with PC, backup device to the computer, etc. By default iTunes will create all folders for content synchronization between PC and iDevice on C: drive. However, sometimes this might be inconvinient, especially if someone has multiple partitions on hard disk dedicated for certain type of content. Also, when number of applications, music files and movies is growing on iDevice iTunes can consume lot of space, so this might be reasonable to move iTunes content to another partition or disk on our system. I will show quick way how ot make iTunes data move smooth and transparent for our device.
