iPhone Support on Windows 8 Developer Preview

Robert Agbozo
Version: 1.0
I had a friend who was recently in town for Christmas and had the developer preview of Windows 8 on his PC. Though, he recently acquired an iPhone 4S and support on Windows 8 was troubled. So after some research online I found documentation on how to properly use your iPhone on a Windows 8 machine. The process however requires you to use the Services menu and that may be annoying or tedious for a few. So I decided to actually create a program that will actually allow you to use your iPhone on the Windows 8 Developer Preview with the click of one button (and the occasional use of the keyboard!). However, the process is sped up and the user no longer needs to go into the Services menu themselves.
 
The program works by utilizing the "sc" command which is the command-line service control program. The program first force closes iTunes and then starts the "Apple Mobile Device" service to ensure that the service is started. From there the program stops the "Apple Mobile Device" service, prompts the user to connect their iPhone to their computer, then restarts the service. The user is then allowed to start iTunes and sync their iPhone.
