Install Zune without connecting to internet

Updated on July 22, 2013

Zune is a wonderful digital media software that automatically syncs with your PC and brings all the music, videos and pictures at your fingertips that too in an elegant interface. If you own a Windows Phone, then this software must be required to transfer files between your PC and phone. But it's installation requires an active internet connection.

While installing Zune normally, it connects to internet to check for updates and it takes some time. Even if it is allowed to do those processes, after sometime, prior to completion of update, it fails. This post is for those who faced the same problem like it happened for me. So, here we install Zune by making it skip off from accessing internet. Before that make sure you have the Zune Setup File downloaded in your computer. If you haven't yet downloaded it, then download it from the link below:

You also need an archiving software like WinRAR. I personally use and recommend WinRAR. To download WinRAR access the link below:

Having WinRAR installed, follow the steps below to enjoy Zune.

Step-by-Step procedure to install Zune :

First, locate the Zune setup file in your computer. It is named ZuneSetupPkg.exe with a size of 100 MB.

Right-click on the file and select Extract to ZuneSetupPkg\

The file gets extracted to a folder named ZuneSetupPkg. Now open that folder.

If you are using 64 bit system open x64 folder or if you are in 32 bit system then open x86 folder.

I'm using a 32 bit system. So, I select x86

In that folder, open the Packages folder and right click on the file named zune-x86 and select Troubleshoot compatibility.

If you are in a 64 bit system, then do the same on the file named zune-x64

It detects for issues and then it shows an option saying Start the program...

Select it and it will let you install Zune.

Now Zune gets installed in your computer. The troubleshooting window asks to save the settings. Select Yes, save these settings for this program.

Now navigate to your desktop. You will find the Zune shortcut. Open it. Smile :) That's all. Enjoy Zune.

If still problem persists with the installation, then write a line to me.
