Workaround: iTunes+QuickTime installer failing to abort if not enough space for recovery info

image

Interesting dialog showing when there’s not enough space for iTunes+QuickTime installer to save recovery info. It says you can press Cancel button, but there’s only an Abort one there. Maybe that’s the reason [:-p] it does nothing (this message just keeps reappearing when you press Abort)? Apart from the joke, there’s a possibility the reason for the failure to cancel is that the installer was launched via the Apple Update application instead of downloading and running it manually.

You can press Ignore to go on installing with no recovery info stored (assuming there’s enough space to install the s/w), else try using the Process Explorer (press CTRL+ALT+DEL) to kill the installer process.

If you did press Abort several times (which fails) and then pressed Ignore then Apple Update will tell you the installation failed and will have to repeat the installation (plus wait for re-downloading the content sadly).
