iPhone MTP USB Device driver issue

I reinstalled Windows 7 this weekend. This time I have decided not to install iTunes or QuickTime or any software from Apple on my main Windows machine. That said, I do want to access the pictures on my iPhone through Windows. After the reinstall, my iPhone wasnt recognized by the OS and it gave me an error about “Unable to install MTP USB device”. The fix is to go into the Device Manager, Uninstall the “Unknown MTP device” and scan for hardware changes. Windows 7 enumerated the devices and recognized the iPhone without any issues. A day without iTunes is a good computing day!
