I am getting this error message when I try to open iTunes:

iTunes.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point A VCFAssetCreateWithByteStreamAndOptions could not be located in the dynamic link library AVFoundationCF.dll

When I click OK, it states that "iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 127)."

I have tried to do the fix but it does not work.

What do you mean by "I have tried to do the fix but it does not work?" Have you tried reinstalling it? – timothymh Feb 27 '12 at 4:06

This will probably be most easily resolved by re-downloading the full installer from and running it.

Note that you don't actually have to fill in an e-mail address in order to download it. Uncheck the boxes, click the Download button, and it should start within a few short seconds.

After the download completes, run the installer and try to open iTunes again.
