    re: the dialogue:  You do not have enough access privileges for this operation  Error code -45054


    A fellow musican I know had an identical issue with this and asked me to check it out.  I fixed it and wrote a long set of instructions on my blog.  His problem was with 10.6 but it was an update he did preparing to move to Mavericks.


    I was able to reproduce the error by just removing the /Shared folder from /Users


    Here is the link to the problem and the instructions on how I fixed1t

    In order to comply with this form, I must point out that the fixed1t blog site does sell cheap Garageband and sampler support software and that I will benefit if you buy it. The reality is, nobody buys these days LOL  ;-)

    On my MAC Maverick 10,9

    (installed on Lion.) iTunes opens with "unknown error (-45054)" I click "OK" closes. Reinstall iTunes 11.1.2.useless. Folder — /Users/Shared/ exists.What do I do next?

    If the folder already exists then ignore the mkdir command and skip to chmod


    Open the terminal and go straight for the:


    To make the folder fully accessible your use the Unix Command chmod to and set it to the folders permissions and privileges to 1777 (if your running Mac OS 10.6 as I am here)If your running Mac OS 10.5 use the code 777)  These codes give the shared folder a kind of 'Universal Donor' status so it can be used by other programs and processes, sort of permissions to all.

    So at the Terminal Prompt now type:

    sudo chmod 1777 /Users/Shared



    Follow this by Return, then quit the Terminal.


    Try iTunes again.  If it still fails open the disk utitlies and repair the priveleges then restart and try again.


    I hope this helps.
