The error means that one of the DLLs on which iPCU depends cannot be found, either because it is not installed or the registry is messed up. iPCU 3.6.2 was released yesterday and installing it may solve your problem, as it will install AMDS.

Thanks Todd, but this didnt work for me. Its no longer stating the APLZOD.DLL part of the error, but the principal message is still the same:
"iPhone Configuration Utility failed to locate 'Apple Mobile Device Support'. Please re-install iPhone Configuration Utility."

I found that most problems with IPCU startup is a some issue with DLLs and programs in the PATH environment variable. And I thinks it's Apple to blame how they load their DLLs. For me the two things prevented IPCU from working:
- Some Intel software in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client". I don't know what is it, probably part of drivers or other Intel software on my PC (I have Intel chipset motherboard and Intel SSD). Affected DLL was msvcr90.dll located here.
- Zend Server in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Zend\ZendServer\bin". Affected DLLs were: libxml2.dll, iconv.dll .
- I also see that it loads zlib1.dll from my "LUA for Windows" folder instead of its own but it seems that IPCU working with it.
So, basically problem occurs because either IPCU or Apple Mobile Device Support load wrong DLLs from some of PATH folders instead of their own folders and those DLLs are incompatible. I have located and narrowed it down by looking into list of loaded DLLs in Process Explorer while IPCU is running (showing its error message box), then checking DLLS that wasn't loaded from one of Windows or Apple folders, and after this I cut folders from PATH variable one by one until it worked, then I returned most of them back except those that affected IPCU startup.

I've got a simple question but it ain't simple if you don't know the answer.
Been trying for some time to get my iPhone to sync to my mac via the tether. I need try re-installing the iPhone configuration utility. How do I find that? Is it on the phone or the mac.
Told you it was simple.
Thanks in advance - mhg
