I'm having some crazy permission problems.

1. I came out of sleep with iTunes open and got a message that iTunes has insufficient privileges to save the library.
2. iTunes wont open permission error. see picture.
3. I cannot undelete the music that I tunes put in the recycle bin (uninstalling iTunes deleted my music!!!)
I tried restoring other delete files they seem to work.


The only think I did was play with windows media center.



I've tweaked the permissions for the entire itunes folder.

all users have all the boxes checked, except special.

Your second picture shows the properties of the itunes shortcut, not the itunes program itself. If you want to change permissions, you have to do it on the itunes program itself, inside c:\program files\..

Your other problem is that the you, not the EXE, do not have permissions to write to the library. Find out which folder the library is located, and fix that folder's permissions, so that you can write to that folder.

I went and found the music folder on the hard drive and changes all the permissions back, that fixed it.
I got an error on all the album art. I guess i couldn't change them, but the pictures do show up on iTunes now.

Thanks a LOT.


Did media player do this, how do I stop it?
