PROBLEM WITH QAAC MAKEPORTABLE

I downloaded iTunes64 (newer version) and I used makeportable.cmd to have the versions QTfiles and QTfiles64, as I always do.

However, this new version is smaller and makeportable displays some details and at the end:

No files to process
Everything is Ok

cannot extract AppleApplicationSupport.msi from installer


Do any friend here have the same problem?

It used to be in 2014 it had AppleApplicationSupport.msi.
So it's likely that Apple have changed the structure sometime in around 2020/09/09.

I hope the author will make the necessary changes soon.

Indeed as of iTunes 12.10.9.3 AppleApplicationSupport has gone.
The files under AppleApplicationSupport are now included in iTunes64.msi itself, and they are installed under C:\Program Files\iTunes.
So, qaac has to be updated to try different registry location to get the dll paths.

The problem for makeportable is that all the necessary dlls such as CoreAudioToolbox.dll are now named like fil40BDB85D846A9E26183C1B4897E354B6  inside of iTunes64.msi, and there's no easy way to tell apart which is which.

We can still use objdump or something on all the file under iTunes64.msi to inspect PE export table to know the name of DLL but that's beyond the scope of simple batch file like makeportable.cmd, and I'm reluctant to do that.

As far as I know 12.10.8.5 installer had the same structure as before so you can use it.

Now released qaac 2.70 to support new CoreAudioToolbox.dll location.

I installed iTunes and did the conversion with:

FOOBAR

Conversion OK!


Tag Tool foobar: qaac 2.69, CoreAudioToolbox 7.10.9.0, AAC-LC Encoder, CVBR 320kbps, Quality 96

There is an easy way to extract these files:
If you're on Windows you can use this tool to do so (folders and non-cryptical filenames).

Oh, thanks.
lessmsi ( https://lessmsi.activescott.com/ ) seems enough, which is contained in the Universal Extractor 2 package.

Re: PROBLEM WITH QAAC MAKEPORTABLE

Now released makeportable2 for iTunes 12.10.9.3.

You don't need universal extractor2 or lessmsi, but you still need 7-zip.
It just uses standard msiexec command for msi extraction.

I uninstalled iTunes (RevoUninst) and extracted the DLLs.

I used FOOBAR for conversion, it worked perfectly.

Congratulations on the work!

I used your cmd for conversion. It is faster, displays fewer messages on the screen.

I noticed that the DLLs are 1k less than the makeportable2 version.

Congratulations on your work and collaboration!

Thanks Wagner! It's a pleasure to be of help to nu774 and the community.  ;)

With the latest versions of iTunes and makeportable I get 40 dll's with filenames beginning with api-ms-win-core- and api-ms-win-crt-

I don't get these files with the earlier versions of iTunes and makeportable that I still have.

I am wondering if they are needed... conversion from flac to m4a using QAAC and Foobar still seems to work if these 40 files are deleted.

Re: PROBLEM WITH QAAC MAKEPORTABLE

Reply #22
They are part of C runtime that iTunes DLLs rely on.
If MSVC 2015 redistributable is installed in your PC, you won't need them.
In case of Windows 10, ucrtbase.dll and all the api-ms-win-*.dll are already pre-installed.

Hi

i have just downloaded the last version for windows ,the installer is 64bit

i tried makeportable2  + 7zip exe and dll ,but i get the same error in the first post


why?
thanks

Re: PROBLEM WITH QAAC MAKEPORTABLE

Reply #24
Have you actually downloaded makeportable2.zip?
makeportable2.cmd shouldn't say the same error message as makeportable since it doesn't search for AppleApplicationSupport at all.
