Has anyone tried creating a Stand-Alone installer for iTunes 8.1 ? It just came out March 15th.
I've extracted the installer and it contains the following .msi's and 1 .exe


If I try to install just the iTunes.msi by copying the msi to the local hard drive. Just to test the install, I ran the .msi to go through the wizard. But when I would expect the install to finally begin copying files, I get the following error:
iTunes Installer Completed
The installer encountered errors before iTunes could be configured.
Your system has not been modified. To retry these operations at a later time, please run the installer again.
If I include both the QuickTime.msi and SetupAdmin.exe and then run the iTunes.msi, it appears to install. But only installs Quicktime.
I opened up iTunes.msi in Orca, and in the ActionText Tables, it shows:
So it appears that these other applications need to be installed prior to the installer getting to iTunes.
Any ideas on getting around this and just installing iTunes? Thanks,

Hi Brian,
it should be quite easy.
iTunes needs Quicktime as a prerequisite.
And if you want to connect Apples iPhone or iPod, you have to install AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi too.
You don't need the other crap.
Bonjour.msi installs a the bonjour service, which is Apple answer for UPnP, but i have never seen anyone using it.
MobileMe.msi installs access to Apples MobileMe Webservices.

See the link to the package KB at the top, you find some options there.
