yogurt Posted March 10, 2013 Share Posted March 10, 2013 (edited) Update April 13, 2014 I will no no longer be updating my add ons which are found throughout this forum. all files will eventually be deleted. Moving forward, I need my online storage for other projects. It was a pleasure to work with Win Toolkit. It is certainly a workhorse that i want in my Deployment Kit. Thanks everyone. I will continue to visit for as long as this project remains active. I really like the community here. PEACE OUT! Minimal iTunes installation 184.108.40.206 x86/x64 (Tweaked)Apple ITunes is primarily a program to play different types of media, but it is also required if you want to backup an IPod/IPad/IPhone or sync your emails, notes, bookmarks etc over USB with your PC. The iTunes installer is provided by Apple as an .exe wrapper for a group of MSI's that are all automatically installed when running the regular iTunes setup wizard. However depending on your use case you don't actually need all of them. To get rid of at least some of those "extra" programs I removed AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi, Bonjour.msi and SetupAdmin.exe. Not all necessary changes to the setup packages can be made by at command line level, therefore the MSI installers have been modified by applying several Transforms (MST) to the MSI package which I explain in more detail below. The end result is a lean, minimal and tweaked iTunes installation that works for the majority of users, including those of you who own an iPod, iPhone or iPad. Optional Switch :: Apple Mobile Device SupportApple Mobile Device Support is optional and only necessary if you want to connect an IPod, IPad or IPhone. Run the installer with the [/ai] switch to instalITunes with Apple Mobile Device Support.
