What is iPod for Windows 2005-11-17?

iPod for Windows uses the iPodService Module which is part of iTunes. It runs as a Windows service to allow programs like iTunes and the iPod Updater to communicate with your iPod or other iOS devices such as an iPhone or iPad.


Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The setup package generally installs about 8 files and is usually about 65.97 MB (69,174,562 bytes). The installed file iPod Updater 2004-11-15.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
