Back to the future


I’m trying to upgrade iTunes on a computer with Windows 7 64 bit computer. I get the dreaded error message: “"Bonjour service failed to start, verify you have sufficient privileges." And I do mean dreaded. Google this error message and add 64 bit. If misery loves company, you’ll have lots of company. And the solutions seem equally miserable, such as completely uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes.

The solution brought back to good old days. Move the install program iTunes64Setup.exe to some directory, in my case C:\temp, and then at the command prompt:

C:\temp>iTunes64Setup.exe NO_BONJOUR=1

The installation runs without Bonjour.

DOS rulez!
