Keys like:
In HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Bonjour Service:

Those are not created during install. If I manually add them the
'bonjour service' will report success on start, but actually crash
right after. However it is enough to satisfy the itunes installer.
Without those it will report failure without even attempting to start
the service. :-)
