    I cannot. Those would presumably be covered by copyright. It's also possible that different Mac architectures or localizations may have different versions.

    I would REALLY like to try this restore option, but when I do the restore, it tells me I don't have permission to access "some" of the files. Also, when I go into the /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks info, it says I have "custom access," and I don't really know what that means or how to fix it.

    Hello!

    I managed to reinstall iTunes 10.7 but it doesn't seem to work to completly delete 11. It's on my desktop and is crossed out. With the youtube video mentioned somewhere here in the posts I got back all may playlists as well.

    Now I have to get rid of the error -42408 message, only the problem is that I don't understand what you wrote that is I don't understand the computer language.

    Neither do I know what AirTrafficHost.framework, CoreFP.framework, DeviceLink.framework etc. are nor where to find them or what to do with them. I'm not using time machine.

    Is there any other easy way to get rid of the error?

    Ok guys, this is the solution:

     

    - Download the installer of iTunes 10.7

     

    - Download Pacifist

     

    - Close iTunes 11

     

    - Drag the iTunes 10.7 installer in Pacifist + install the package

     

    - Always hit the "replace"-button whenever Pacifist asks for it

     

    - Don't open iTunes yet

     

    - Browse to your iTunes Music folder and move the "iTunes Library.itl" to your desktop

     

    - Go to the folder "Previous iTunes Libraries"

     

    - Copy the file of the library from the day when you updated to iTunes 11 to your iTunes Music folder and rename it to "iTunes Library.itl"

     

    - Launch iTunes and be amazed it worked

    OMG...thank you so much!!! This worked for me!

     

    After a thoasand hours of struggeling, I've finally my good old Itunes back.. Like it's on a Mabcook again, and not a ***** Iphone...which makes sense, because that's what it it!

     

    A BIG, BIG THANK YOU TO  all who helped with this...where would we be without you great people?? I know Itunes 11 is a heap of junk...but there have been way to many people simply complianing...this is a support forum afterall. So great that some of you could really help.

     

    By the way, for those who have already tried the other solutions which don't work (like restoring files from Time Machine), you can just do this directly. No need to reinstall  Itunes 11, or even remove your existing 10.7. Just follow these steps and it should work....

     

    Moral of the story is, when something works, don't try and fix it! And if you are a software developer, don't realease an update unless it is an improvment.
