iTunes installer has been broken for quite a while, at least for me, running on Windows 10. With a little bit of research, I found it is easily fixable. So, I made a script (batch file) to fix the installer and run it. All it does is extract and then run the separate installers.
Here is the script:
cd C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Downloads if not exist iTunes (md iTunes) CALL COPY /Y iTunes64Setup.exe iTunes cd iTunes 7z e iTunes64Setup.exe -r REM This is the problem component AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi REM optional AppleApplicationSupport64.msi PAUSE REM optional AppleMobileDeviceSupport6464.msi PAUSE REM optional Bonjour64.msi REM the main installer iTunes64.msi
Note this needs to be run from the command line, which can be found from typing ‘cmd’ in windows search box. This script also assumes that the original iTunes installer is in your ‘username’\downloads directory. It also assumes that your have 7zip installed and is in your %PATH% environment variable (If 7zip is installed, it should already be on your path).
