Great script! But, how do I make an alias of iTunesHelper when I can't find it?

Hello,

The iTunesHelper app is located inside of the iTunes.app package, right here to be specific: iTunes.app/Contents/Resources/iTunesHelper.app To access the contents of a package, right click on the package and select "View package contents" from the contextual menu.

Unfortunately, it is not quite a normal application as it does not open if you double click on it.

You can however make iTunesHelper launch with AppleScript:

tell application "iTunesHelper"
activate
end tell

My login items script only opens alias files, so if you save this script directly in the login items folder it will be ignored. Instead save the scipt someplace else then make an alias to it and put that in the login items folder. Another option would be to paste this little scrap of script right into the login items script.
