    I am trying to update to the newest version of iTunes but get the following
    error message: There is a problem with this Windows installer package. A
    program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your
    support personnel or package vendor.
    If I uninstall iTunes, will I lose all the contents?

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

  2. Are you running WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    Further, I have uninstalled ITunes and tried to reinstall with the same
    problem.

    Yes, I found a solution on Apple's support page.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1926?viewlocale=en_US

    Follow the cleanup Itunes installer link. After the download, I selected
    anything that said Apple, Itunes or quicktime.
