One of my installation (itunes) is failing because of a path not found.
I need to create a folder in
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\ and copy to that new folder some files. I get access denied, I'm admin.. When I saw the privileges - only user
System can write there but I've no idea how to acquire this user(I never created it).
Itunes fails because it doesnt find the location of
usbaapl64.inf. It looks for that file in
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\usbaapl64.inf_amd64_neutral_ca639d07023cb608 which indeed doesnt exists, but I search where the installation get this path from (stored in some files/registry/device manager) and I didnt find where this path is store. I do have the location
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\usbaapl64.inf_amd64_neutral_c111aaecb61e9a2b so what I though was to create that location and copy the files to there. I really tried everything in order to fix that failed installation, this is the last resort.
Among things I tried (I scanned google and apple support, so I dont really remember the most) to install previous release, update apple usb drivers from the driver manager, split the apple installation to 3 (application support, mobile device and itunes), restart win between uninstall & install, clean the computer from left overs with verities of programs, clean the registry(plus clean it from anything that contain
ca639d07023cb608), and I guess more things that I probably forgot...
