As you probably know by now iTunes is not compatible with Windows XP 64 bit. This article explains how you can install the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad drivers on Windows XP 64 bit and is targeted for advanced users. A special thank you to Richard Simpson for creating the tutorial and to Yukichigai for the initial procedure.

  1. Download the latest 64-bit version of iTunes 10.

  2. Using 7-zip or WinRAR, extract the contents of the iTunes installer 7 zip extraction

  3. Download Microsoft Orca (2.4 MB) and install it. SuperOrca (1.9 MB) looks promising but we haven’t tested

  4. Edit AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi with Orca edit with Orca

  5. – Locate the extracted iTunes files, right-click “AppleMobleDeviceSupport64.msi” and select “Edit with ORCA”

    – In the left pane select “Launch Condition”, in the right pane select the condition:
    “(VersionNT=501 And ServicePackLevel>=2) Or VersionNT>=600″ and edit the 600 at the end with 501 so it reads like this: “(VersionNT=501 And ServicePackLevel>=2) Or VersionNT>=501″ edited with Orca

    – Save and Exit Orca. This is necessary to enable AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi to install in Windows XP 64-bit

  6. Install AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi and ignore the unsigned driver warning

  7. Edit QuickTime.msi

  8. – Create a shortcut of “QuickTime.msi”

    – Right-click on it and select properties

    – Add: -passive /promptrestart to the end of “Target”
    (The complete target should look like:
    “c:\MyLocation\SomeDir\QuickTime.msi” -passive /promptrestart. Please note that you should have a space after the .msi” and before the -passive /promptrestart)

  9. Install the QuickTime.msi shortcut

  10. Install AppleApplicationSupport.msi

  11. Plug in your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad

  12. Change the device driver for the iPhone in Device Manager

– Open Device Manager, expand “Imaging Devices”, right-click the “Apple iPhone” entry and select “Properties”

– Select the driver tab, select and click the “Update Driver” button

– Select  “No, not this time” when prompted to connect to Windows Update and click Next

– On the next screen, select “Install from a list or specific location” and click Next

– On the next screen, select “Don’t search…” and click Next

– The next screen should show you two entries, “Digital Still Camera” and “Apple Mobile Device USB Driver”. (or similar) Select “Apple Mobile Device USB Driver” and click Next

– On the next screen, select “Continue Anyway”

– On the next screen, select “Finish”

We had to do this step for each iPhone model; once for an iPhone 4 and once again for an iPhone 3GS. Repeating this step for an existing model phone will no longer show two driver selections but only the “Digital Still Camera”. But you can verify the iPhone is set up properly in Device Manager by expanding Universal Serial Bus controllers at the bottom of the list and seeing the first entry listed as “Apple Mobile Device USB Driver”.
