Since the Pro 2 has full Windows 8.1, can it run iTunes?
Why not? It's a computer. Just download iTunes for Windows, works just fine.
Had you tried to install it and run into some sort of issue? Can't see any other reason for the question...
Hey, I'm coming from the Surface 2...this Surface Pro 2 is a truly different animal! Wonderful!
No, but I just installed it successfully though and it works fine. I have just came from a plain Surface 2 where this wasn't possible. That's why I was asking.
The Surface Pro 2 is a full Windows computer locked in a tablet body. Think of it as a laptop with a removable keyboard. (The Type Cover 2 is great, if you don't already have it)
The regular ol' Surface 2 is a regular tablet that can only run apps from the Windows Store. As great as it is at doing that, it can't touch the Pros.
Usually the reason most people move from an RT OS to a Windows OS is to be able to run standard Windows apps. That's why some of us were a little puzzled by the question. If it's an app that is compatible with Windows 7, then there is no reason not to try it and see. If I was purchasing an expensive app such as Photoshop, I would check on their website to see if it was compatible with Windows 8.1, otherwise I would just go far it.
Welcome to the world of portable full Windows. It's an amazing experience to be able to run everything you'd normally have on your desktop or laptop on the go in such a small, portable form.
I have a surface pro 2 and I am trying to get iTunes on my table. However when I go to the website, because there is no app in the windows store, I click download, it downloads for one minute, then says there is no app on my PC to run this. How exactly am I to get iTunes on my tablet so my wife can use her account
By going to Apples website and installing the Windows version of iTunes...
Yeah that's what I did and when it finished downloading, it said there is no app to run this file. So I'm confused.
What Browser are you using? It should be called iTunes64Setup.exe and its 116MB in size...
