    "Out of date - find version 3.0.0.10"

    August 02, 2013   |   By MacHesney

    Version: Bonjour for Windows 1.0.6

    Pros

    Using version 3.0.0.10 I have no problem with even my ancient (pre-Intel)Mac discovering my Dell PC's on my home network.

    It is included in iTunes for Windwos and Safari for Windows.

    Cons

    Very difficult to find version 3.0.0.10 on a trusted download location.

    It is included in iTunes for Windwos and Safari for Windows.

    Summary

    Out of date so only 4 stars.
    Instead just install iTunes for Windows or Safari for Windows which have the latest Bonjour for Windows packaged within.

    "You have to understand what this is for"

    October 16, 2012   |   By jimerman

    Version: Bonjour for Windows 1.0.6

    Pros

    Does what it is supposed to. But you have to understand, it is a generic networking discovery and automatic communication protocol.

    Cons

    None I can think of. Except misunderstanding what it is.

    Summary

    It is not an "AirPrint to any printer from your iOS device" solution. Certainly AirPrint could be done over Bonjour, but you are better off seeing http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1293865 for a discussion on how to set it up, or what I did was configure AirPrint using shared printers on an Ubuntu Linux box. With a little Google searching, and some tech knowhow, you can make it happen. iTunes uses Bonjour for network-related communication like Airplay to Apple TV, or network synch with iPhone/iPod/iPad.

    For those of you having trouble with iTunes and who have hosed their installs trying to mess around with it but don't have the knowhow to fix it, Windows has a System Restore feature that allows you to restore back to a date when it was last working. It's pretty weak compared to Mac Time Machine, but it works fairly well. Restore your system to before you messed it up, and try iTunes install again.

    "Apple needs to help us solve this issue."

    August 03, 2012   |   By Kmsparkles

    Version: Bonjour for Windows 1.0.6

    Pros

    None-will not install on my Windows XP.

    Cons

    Will not install to help fix my problem.

    Summary

    All I want to do is update iTunes and Quicktime. I have not been able to do this for 3 months either by the auto or manual method. The process cannot find Bonjure and .msi install files? That's the only reason I tried to install this version of Bonjour.

    I cannot reload Bonjour, nor Itunes nor Quicktime updates. My dialog box messages still says "cannot find .msi install files, please browse for new location". Yes it is a PC nightmare, with no workarounds! I even tried the Cleaner program recommended by many with the same issue. Now my Music Library is gone.

    "Do not even think about using this!"

    November 13, 2011   |   By retro oslo

    Version: Bonjour for Windows 1.0.6

    Pros

    None............

    Cons

    Went to uninstall, only partially uninstalled! Went to launch Itunes, does not launch because of removing Bonjour! Tried to remove Itunes and reload both programs. Will not let you uninstall Itunes or reload it either, (nor can you update)! This is on a PC! Went to web for help (take a look} hundreds are having this issue with no solutions ! Nightmare issue

    Summary

    They need to fix this issue and quick! Their loss in music sales alone, is compounding daily!!

    Updated on Jan 26, 2012

    Still cannot reload bonjour, nor Itunes nor Quicktime updates. Says cannot find .msi install files, please browse for new location. Nightmare, with no workarounds! Thanks for taking out Itunes, you led me right to Spotify! You are now no longer missed!

    Updated on Apr 4, 2012

    For months and months now Itunes will not reload nor work, Bonjour will not reload nor work. So pleased they have addressed this issue NOT ....... This is absolutely the worst program I have ever encountered! Makes Norton look like a genius! Thank you for all the support Bonjour!

    May 05, 2011   |   By stanislavf

    Pros

    Not applicable. I wanted to use this in conjunction with airprint and some other software to enable printing to shared printers on Windows from my iPad. Did not work.

    Cons

    Didn't solve my need.

    Summary

    Will not solve print from iPad problem. May be worthwhile for other things.

    "Perfect for home network"

    January 15, 2011   |   By 87mtnrd

    Version: Bonjour for Windows 1.0.6

    Pros

    Fast download and set-up. Dead simple to configure.

    Cons

    So far, nothing.

    Summary

    Our home computer has always been a Mac. We use an Airport Express for wireless printing. Now that I spend more time at home, I needed a simple way to share the printer. Bonjour is it. It, quite literally, took 3 minutes to set-up and print my first document. Couldn't be happier.

    Thank you, CNET, for having this available online so I didn't have to dig out my Apple disc and plug a drive into my netbook.

    Summary

    Terrible! Have to have it to use wireless printer for my laptop. Nothing but problems.
    Have to call technical help twice a month to get printer to work.
