Then go in an Authorize. It Worked for me.MBP 2.16GHz/2GB ,Power Mac G5 Dual Dual-Core 2.5GHz, Power Mac G5 Dual 2.0GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

From Vista, right click on the iTune.exe program icon located in the iTune folder in the Program File folder and select Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab and enable the "Run this program as an administrator" checkbox. Click on OK.
Next time you run iTune it will automatically run under administrator privileges, this fixes the problem until Apple comes up with a Vista only version.
BTW, I ran into similar problems with other XP prgrams that would not run quite well under Vista. The same trick fixed all issues.Acer Travelmate, Other OS, Running Vista

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 1, 2007 10:20 AM (in response to lamboguy)iTunes only needs administrator privileges once to write the authorization to disk (Vista appears to have locked the old "My Music" folder). After that, you can run it normally so you don't have to deal with the UAC popup every time you start iTunes.
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 2, 2007 5:16 AM (in response to Chunleela)I installed iTunes without a hitch, and when I tried to authorize my account, it worked perfectly, without usign the run as admin workaround. I think either side has given in and made it click.
Funny thing about iTunes for vista is that only the main window has the correct frame, all the rest deffault to the vista frames. (Yay )
btw, the "other OS" is vista
