Ok, so i have a script created after much debuging/recreating and have it somewhat working...One issue I am having is at the end of the account creation in iTunes and 'Create Apple ID' is pressed by the script, I get an 'Your session has timed out . Please try again Code:5107" in iTunes. I have set the 'Title' to 'Mr' as last step as per one tip I read and that does not help. :-<
Any suggestions? Could this be the Apple limit on accounts thru our District IP issue?
BTW - If I do get this to work it will be AWESOME!

Setup
Mac OS 10.8.5/ iTunes 11.1.5(5)

Did you get it fixed? I ran into the same issue with one of my Macs, while creating 100 IDs.

Nope......Need it though as it would be a great tool to assist with the creation of Apple IDs..

I have this issue

I have this issue occasionally, means I have to babysit the script to know where it crashes. Sometimes I'll run through 15-20 IDs before it freezes, other times, I'll only get one or two ID run.

I've noticed that it tends to happen less often when I'm on a wired connection vs wireless so I'm wondering if it's an issue between iTunes and Apple.

I built a custom script that watches for that. Basically a simple loop with a delay that waits for iTunes to update and present the relative information, then it continues. I posted the fix here, but had it deleted by the admin. Hopefully he can use it in his script.

I've also noticed Apple recently got tricky and changes the button name for Create Apple ID at random, something like Create New Apple ID, so if your script is looking for a button by description it will fail. My script now checks for that as well.

The Session Timed out thing resolved itself over the weekend and I've successfully created another 300 - 400 AppleID without an issue.

I think I'll post a video.
