Just seems totally ironic to me that having scanned through the questions posed in the "Apple Software Update for Windows" forum, I've posted one of the few queries that actually relate to that product - but it was (until I replied) the only question that remained with absolutely no responses!!!
Oh well. Guess it must have been a stupid question. Or that no-one else has ever explored the "Download Only" and "Open Download Folder" functions of the software....???
I too have limited bandwidth and would like to download once and update on multiple computers. Had to update the OS on my ipod Touch at work because it had to be plugged in during download? That's what finally worked...
Download would not complete on the slow DSL (network resets)
Now I have had to unistall my itunes and can't get the files needed to reinstall.
There are standalone downloads you can manually install on multiple systems.
I never use Apple's Software Update, and of course wait a week or two for reports of problems to come out. In fact, I'd turn it off.
If you need x64 and x86 iTunes you'll need to make sure you get both.
Seems like shouldn't need the full programs though each time if they are just updates and patches basically, and keep getting bigger.
Also, while it may not be necessary, you may want to uninstall first (and reboot).
