When I turn on my computer (Dell Presario SR1620NX running Windows XP), a message box stating the following pops up on the desktop:

AppleSyncNotifier.exe unable to locate component. This application has failed to start because CoreFoundation.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. <OK>

I clicked OK, the box closed and the computer runs just fine. I did a search for AppleSyncNotifier and 2 files were found:

1) ProgramFiles\Common files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\bin (174KB)
2) Applesyncnotifier.exe-11855EB.pf (6KB)

How can I eliminate the message box from appearing when I start the computer? Thanks.

Download and install the latest iTunes, it should give you the option to repair the installation, do so. Next run the Apple Software Update and update to the latest version of Mobile Me control panel.

Did it work for you too? I had a client in the workshop the other day and that's what I did and it started working properly again, no errors.

Funny considering I don't use Apple software at all...

Cheers

Thanks, I installed I-tunes 9.1 and did my apple updates and it got rid of the error message "AppleSyncNotifier.exe was unable to locate a component. This application has failed to start because CoreFoundation.dll was not found." :)

This is an old thread but I’ll try my luck here…
I have reinstalled my iTunes but it didn’t work for me, I have Vista Home.
I read in the following article about this corefoundation.dll was not found applesyncnotifier.exe that this can happen due to a problem with my registry system, so even if I reinstall iTunes my registry is still ‘broken’ when calling that .dll file. So in that case what should I do? Any advise will be appreciated.
