I just upgraded to iTunes  I am now getting the following error message:  "The iTunes library file cannot be saved. An unknown error occurred (-50)"


I have uninstalled/reinstalled iTunes several times (rebooting before reinstallation).  I also tried deleting all the iTunes Library files.  Finally I followed the directions at this link: with no success. 

Nothing will save to the library file.  Any changes to playlists or music downloaded will not show up the next time iTunes is opened.  This makes iTunes unusable for anything other than listening to music. 

I am using Win 7 32.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, peter

Windows 7
