Windows XP, checked the host and it seemed to have the correct entries. When we installed Tinyumbrella, it runs a small local server to circumvent the Apple server and changes the host file so it looks at 127.0.0.1 for gs.apple.com.
Right, can you take out 127.0.0.1 for gs.apple.com from your host file.
and see if it works?
in task mgr try to kill SyncServer.exe
and try open itunes and connect
also try c:\doc settings \ user \AppData\Roaming\AppleComputer
Rename SyncServices folder to SyncServices_Old or SuncServices_Other or something like that
if that does not work,
Copying the SQLite3.dll file into the to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support'--
