Well, Apple does not support installing Itunes on a W3k server, but it can be done anyway (I’m using it with my Iphone 3Gs). This is how I done (I got info on how from http://sites.google.com/site/yukichigai/iphonex64):

1. I’ve downloaded the latest .exe installer from apple.com
2. I’ve extracted the .exe using winrar to C:\Temp\iTunesSetup.
3. From here I first ran iTunes.msi, which installed without a hassle (I guess you have to install Quicktime first, I but already had it installed).
4. I then tried to run AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi (but I got an error message that “requires that your computer is running Windows XP SP2 or newer”).
5. I’ve downloaded Orca (from http://sites.google.com/site/yukichigai/Orca.msi?attredirects=0) and opened AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi in it. Here I changed LaunchCondition to: “(VersionNT=501 And ServicePackLevel>=2) Or VersionNT>=500”, saved the file and re-run AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi. This time it installed without any error messages.
6. Then I’ve started Itunes and everything worked ok!
