Upgraded from 2.1.11 to 2.1.18. Running current 6.24 Java on Windows 7 Home Premium. Ran 2.1.18 installation as admin, consistently gets error from Java Virtual Machine Launcher saying "Could not create the Java Virtual Machine". I let installation finish. Icon still points to 2.1.11. Manually starting 2.1.18 says it can not connect to ITunes. 2.1.11 is detecting a newer version installed.

Log file is empty.

LOVE beaTunes. How can I get it working?? Thanks!!

    Hi Robert,

    the beaTunes installer does not update an existing installation. So you should probably uninstall the older version using its uninstaller. While uninstalling it will ask you whether you'd like to delete BPM data. Do not delete that data.

    Then start the 2.1.18 version. Does it work? If not, please read http://help.beatunes.com/kb/troubleshooting/where-are-the-beatunes-... and send me your logs.
