    Hi,
    Can iOS 4.2 be installed on iPad with latest iTunes on WVista? I'm asking because 4.0 beta for iPhone cannot be installed if I were on Windows ...

    Thanks for answer!

    BTW: I know that I must be registered in dev.

    Windows Vista ? You're the first Windows user that I have seen in 2010 that still uses Vista...

    Anyway, I believe you can install 4.2 from Windows.. I did it from my Windows computer [ not remembering the thing with 4.0 ] but for the sexiest results I would rather do it on my Mac.

    Lol, it's better than 7 IMO.

    On-Topic: So, now you can install the betas on Windows again (though it doesn't matter to me because I have Mac)?

    Well, I know that. With 4.0 betas though, you weren't able to do it on Windows.

    Not unless you were on iTunes 9.2 Beta.

    So you're telling me back when my windows computer worked (which was before getting the Mac), you were able to install 4.0 betas? I thought iTunes 9.2 beta was only for Mac?
