Part 1. What is Windows Error 127 (iTunes Error 7)?

Windows Error 127 or iTunes Error 7 is a common error that a good amount of iOS device users have experienced. It occurs specifically to Windows PC users and is directly related to file communication problems between iTunes and your operating system.

Symptoms That Have Been Reported

  1. Your Windows PC may run slower than normal.
  2. Your PC may react slower to your peripherals such as the keyboard and mouse.
What Exactly Causes this Error?
The usual cause for this error to occur is through corrupted data. How the data ended up being corrupted is usually explained through these factors
  1. A corrupted download of iTunes.
  2. Improper installation of iTunes resulting in bad registry entries.
  3. iTunes was not completely installed.
  4. A virus or malware corrupted the Windows operating system files.
  5. A virus or malware corrupted the iTunes files.
  6. System files or the Windows Registry were altered or deleted.
  7. Windows NET Framework issue is occurring.

Part 2. How to Fix iTunes Error 7 (Windows Error 127) Issues?

Now that we know what the error is, how will we be able to completely fix this issue? Read on, and we will guide you through the working methods provided - any one of them is a guaranteed possible fix:

  1. Restarting your Windows PC and repair.
  2. Uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes.
  3. Updating your Microsoft NET Framework version.

Method 1: Restarting Your PC + Repair

Some fixes to solutions are sometimes as easy as this. so if you are stuck at this iTunes error 7 windows error 127, first try to restart your Windows PC. Afterward, go to Control Panel and search for “Apple Application Support”, select “Repair” and allow the process to finish. Now attempt to try to run iTunes again.

For some users, this may be the only solution needed. Why may it work? Apple Application Support holds all the files needed to run Apple applications. It may have run into a hiccup so simply repairing this program may allocate the files to where they need to be.

So, once you have tried this method and the error still occurs or you decided to try something with more ‘impact’, then give the next method a try.

Method 2: Uninstalling and Reinstalling iTunes

This method is another simple solution which may fix your issue. The only thing is that it requires a bit of thorough, strategic manual cleaning. If this still sounds easy, let us go get started.

  1. Click on ‘Start’.
  2. Find and go to ‘Control Panel’ and open up ‘Programs and Features’.
  3. Find EVERY single Apple program - select and remove them from the list. Yes, this includes iTunes.
  4. After these programs have been uninstalled, go to ‘My Computer’.
  5. Go into your ‘C: Drive’.
  6. Go into ‘Programs’.
  7. Look for these folders and delete them.

Apple (inside ‘Common Files’)

  1. Go into ‘Windows’ then ‘System32’. Search and delete these folders.
  2. Once all of these have been deleted, restart your PC.
  3. Download and install iTunes again.

After all of this has been done, the error should not resurface. Congratulations!

On the off-chance that Error 7 does still resistor if you have decided not to use this method at all, do not worry as we have two more ways available.

Method 3: Updating Your Microsoft NET Framework Version

There may be times when iTunes does not have the right support or in this case, framework, to even be able to run. An error occurring within the framework itself may also cause the issue.

For this method, we simply require an updated Microsoft NET Framework to get everything working smoothly. With that said, let us get started.

  1. Open up an internet browser. This may be Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge.
  2. Go to Microsoft’s main website:
    *The website will automatically adjust to your language and region.
  3. Search for the latest framework available. This is best done by typing in ‘Framework’ into the search bar found near the upper right side of their website.
  4. Select and download the latest framework available for your operating system.
  5. Install the framework and restart your computer.
  6. Load up iTunes again.

Hopefully, this had done the trick. The reason why we need an updated or brand new framework is that iTunes relies on it to run. As with many applications from other developers, the programming embedded in NET is used to run their installations, processes and more. Apple so happens to use Microsoft’s NET Framework to have their products - from Mac to Windows - working smoothly as possible.

So, let us say that even if this method has not worked, or if you are looking for something even easier and effortless to use in order to fix the iTunes Error 7, then look no further.

Allow us to present to you the ultimate solution for getting your error - ALL errors in fact - to disappear with one simple, easy to use program.
