comment iTunes keeps asking about incoming network connections
By way of comparison, this is what I got from codesign -v --verbose && codesign -d --verbose: /Applications/iTunes.app: valid on disk /Applications/iTunes.app: satisfies its Designated Requirement codesign -d --verbose /Applications/iTunes.app Executable=/Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/MacOS/iTunes Identifier=com.apple.iTunes Format=bundle with Mach-O universal (i386 x86_64) CodeDirectory v=20100 size=131865 flags=0x0(none) ..etc.. So yes that's evidence that your app is at fault. Clutching at straws: try disk utility - repair file permissions?

comment How to download Bootcamp drivers without Bootcamp assistant?
To be fair, the question was asked 2 years ago! Also, please note, my website does NOT give you third party downloads: The links are all to URLs on swcdn.apple.com. The hard work -- and Apple is still not helping with this -- is working out which download link you need for which older model of Mac. The new apple bootcamp links at support.apple.com/downloads/#bootcamp are great but still only name a handful of models; for the rest you are left guessing which download you need.

comment Can't update Boot Camp in Windows 7 (MacbookPro9,1)
Ah, error messages - the last thing a software developer pays attention to. I'm glad the links on the cafe-encounter site worked okay. BootCamp is now on version 5, I update the links again last week.

Really? The page at cafe-encounter.net/p682/download-bootcamp-drivers is still working, even updated for late 2012.
