    Update: When I click on itunes.exe this message shows up:

    "Apple application support was not found. apple application support is required to run itunes. Please uninstall itunes, then install itunes again. Error 2 (Windows error 2)"

    I have reinstalled itunes a few times now, so I don't think that's my issue...

    What version of Itunes are you trying to install?
    Here is a compatability list of the different versions of Itunes and Wine (which playonlinux is a wrapper for)

    Thanks for sending the compatibility list. Before I was trying to run itunes version 11.

    After seeing this list decided to install itunes 8.2 because it had one of the highest ratings (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...sion&iId=16848).

    I still got the same error reports listed before, so I decided to give itunes 10 and 9 a try. Same thing happens: "path not found" and "there is no windows program configured to open this type of file"

    Update: I found this thread in the playonlinux forum: http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-9926-iTunes_10.html

    The thread describes how to successfully install itunes 10.1.1, but I'm having trouble following his advice because of my limited understanding of computer-speak. Particularly in step 2:
    "Use the _testing_ iTunes 10 installation script in PlayOnLinux 4.1.8. (There is a readily available repo for Ubuntu users.)"
