[Discontinued] iTunes without QuickTime

Recommended Posts

What switches do I need to use to do a silent uninstall? I tried the following command but it prompted me for remove or repair:

MsiExec.exe /I{B045B608-4A47-4C77-9EAD-06C394503306} /qb-

The distributed EXE accepts MSI switches. (most of my exe's accept MSI switches)

example:

iTunesEN7431.exe /qn

ooppss, just re-read your request, silent uninstall... ummmm, I dunno at the moment.

I'm usually trying to figure out how to get things installed... silent uninstall isnt a much used feature.

I found this vb script that will silently remove iTunes and I expanded it to remove all of the other things installed by standard Apple installer. Just the first For/Next loop is need to remove your version.

On Error Resume Next
Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "."
Set WshShell = CreateObject("wscript.Shell")
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" &_
strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall"
oReg.EnumKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath, arrSubKeys

For Each subkey In arrSubKeys
strDisplayName = WshShell.RegRead ("HKLM\" & strKeyPath & "\" & subkey & "\DisplayName")
If strDisplayName = "iTunes" Then
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /norestart /x " & SubKey & " /qn", 7, True
End If
Next

For Each subkey In arrSubKeys
strDisplayName = WshShell.RegRead ("HKLM\" & strKeyPath & "\" & subkey & "\DisplayName")
If strDisplayName = "QuickTime" Then
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /norestart /x " & SubKey & " /qn", 7, True
End If
Next

For Each subkey In arrSubKeys
strDisplayName = WshShell.RegRead ("HKLM\" & strKeyPath & "\" & subkey & "\DisplayName")
If strDisplayName = "Apple Mobile Device Support" Then
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /norestart /x " & SubKey & " /qn", 7, True
End If
Next

For Each subkey In arrSubKeys
strDisplayName = WshShell.RegRead ("HKLM\" & strKeyPath & "\" & subkey & "\DisplayName")
If strDisplayName = "Apple Software Update" Then
WshShell.Run "msiexec.exe /norestart /x " & SubKey & " /qn", 7, True
End If
Next

@Shark007

First of all: thanks for your iTunes "lite" installer. I've been using it without problem for quite a while now.

I'm currently using your Vista Codec Package 4.5.1 with your last iTunes 7.4 installer, and things are OK. I've noticed that both the iTunes and VCP have new versions out, and I'm downloading them now. I've also noticed that you're removing the Quicktime components from VCP from 4.5.3...

My question is: Am I going to have to install your new QuickTime Lite for VCP in order to get your iTunes without Quicktime to work? i.e. VCP 4.5.3 + QTLite for VCP + iTunes 7.5 = everything working OK for XP?

Thanks in advance,

-- Jondar

QuickTime Lite for VCP is not compatible with iTunes.

I think when running iTunes without Quicktime installed, you will get a message that you have to install quicktime.

So yes; you need to install quicktime first.
