Apple Application Support â€“ latest version
With each recent version of QuickTime and iTunes, it’s been necessary to have Apple Application Support installed. So today, installing QuickTime 7.7.2 on a PC with iTunes 10.6.3 installed, the AppleApplicationSupport.msi didn’t complete as there was a newer version installed. Now, I am led to believe that you should use the latest version of Apple Application Support, but this leads me to ask:
- Where’s the documentation that supports this? Maybe it could have something as handy as a download link for that msi.
- If the latest version is always the one to use, why does it bomb out by default? If a later version is found, just do nothing and move on
Package these applications separately and there should be no trouble.
Have a look at these posts:
Yes, if it finds the same version, ie the version included with iTunes 10.6.3, it reports that a newer version is installed and bombs if your doing each msi at a time rather than the customer oreintated exe. I've never run into this on a large scale so I've never really come up with a fix. I think you'lll need to detect either the version of AppleApplicationSupport installed or check for the sister version of iTunes, in this case 10.6.3
