iTunes Radio not showing up on Windows 7

If your like me, I've been wanting to check out iRadio and see what the deal is. After I updated iTunes to version 11.1 I expected to see the option appear when I opened iTunes. Much to my dismay it did not magically appear. It showed up on my mac mini and macbook pro. So you might be saying, isnt that enough. Well no. It should work cross platform and its just irritating. Besides my work hourse is my Desktop PC and it should just work on there darn it.

After a bit of research this is what I found out. The system requirements from Apple.
"System Requirements
Mac OS X version 10.6.8 or later
Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later
32-bit editions of Windows Vista or 32-bit editions of Windows 7, and Windows 8"

I got Windows 7, whats the deal? Well after uninstalling iTunes and a big epic fail of trying to install a 32 bit version, I re installed the 64 bit version.

Magically iRadio appeared! That was great, but the really awesome thing was that all my media was where it was before I uninstalled. So it might have not been the best way to go about it. But it worked for me!
