Apple released iTunes 10.1.0.56, for both Windows x86 as well as Windows x64.
This new version brings support for playing videos over AirPlay and "stability and performance improvements." The new version of iTunes is also required for syncing devices that run the forthcoming iOS 4.2 which has been delayed due to WiFi connection issues.
The 'iTunesSetup.exe' is basically a compressed archive which contains seven different MSI's which together take care of installing everything which is needed to run iTunes:
The correct order to install these MSI's is:
- AppleApplicationSupport.msi (1.4.1)
With iTunes Apple ships two 'support' MSI. The 'Application Support' msi has the core files for 'Application Support' within iTunes.
- AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi (188.8.131.52)
With iTunes Apple ships two 'support' MSI. The 'Mobile Device Support' msi has the core files for device management of devices which can be connected to iTunes (iPhone, iPod, Ipad).
- Bonjour.msi (184.108.40.206)
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. Specifically, Bonjour enables automatic IP address assignment without a DHCP server, name to address translation without a DNS server, and service discovery without a directory server. Bonjour is an open protocol which Apple has submitted to the IETF as part of the ongoing standards-creation process.
