I meant Installing, not downloading...

C:\program files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\distnoted.exe
How should I fix it so I can install itunes?

Thanks!

What are you you using? An Ipod or Iphone/Itouch?? You could try this (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1595207)

What version of Itunes did you install, and are you sure you installed the right version (32 or 64 bit)?

What OS?

Does the error say just C:\program files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\distnoted.exe

Or Does it have "Error Creating" at the front?

OMG, didnt realize my laptop is that old.... It's Windows XP home edition 2002.
I dont use ipod or iphone, I just need use itunes to watch some streaming videos people uploaded for my class.
The error box poped up during install itunes 8.2.1.
This is exactly what appeared in the box:
"Error writing to the file: C:\program files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin\distnoted.exe"

Thank you both!

Try the method in the link Speedy posted.

Are there alternatives to use for playing the streaming media?

Such as VLC?

Is SP2/3 installed?

No, the streaming video is called PODCAST, I can only subscribe it from itunes.
I did use speedy's link, but when I installing the supplementary file, it gave me the exactly error box...
I even use Revo uninstalled Itunes and try to install it again, but it didnt work as well...
