iTunes 8.2 On Windows Server 2003

If you're like me, you run a Windows Server 2003 box and have iTunes on there for your various iThing devices.  It makes the most sense since that's where your music/videos/etc. are too.  Well, with iTunes 8.2 Apple decided to screw us over and not let AppleMobileDeviceSupport run on our machines.  Luckily, I found a nice clean hack here on an Apple forum.  Basically you download the Win32 components of the Windows SDK and an installer disassembler. You use the Windows SDK to remove the OS requirement check which allows the AppleMobileDeviceSupport installer to cleanly install and function normally.
