    I am having difficulty installing iTunes. When I attempt to install I get the
    following messages and the installation fails:-

    Error 1406: Could not write value to key\Software\Classes\.cdda\open with
    list\iTunes.exe Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or
    contact your support personnel.

    Error 1402: Could not open key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\\.cdda\OpenWithProdigs. Verify that you
    have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

    Error:- 1603 Fatal error during installation. Consult Windows installer help
    (Msi.chm) or MSDN for more information.

    I have found the "HKEY_LOCAL...................................Prodigs" file
    but could not do anything with it. I am attampting to install on my own PC (
    windows XP) and do not know who my "support personnel" are!

    Can anyone help?

    Bob,

    Do you have the latest version of iTunes? I don't have issues with the
    latest version. It does do weird things to Aero though until in QuickTime I
    put it in Safe Mode (GDI Only), and I don't see any issues now.

    have you tried right clicking on the icon for the I-tunes installer and
    selecting 'run as administrator' ? This should make sure that the installer
    has admin permissions

    Thanks for the tip Bones - Unfortunately I didn't get a "Run as
    administrator" option so I ran as current user. It didn't work. I just got
    the same error message!
