Cannot open itunes since update.

Since update, I cannot open itunes.  Message says, "itunes Library Extras.itdb file is locked, on a locked disck, or you do not have write permission on this disc."  What to do??

Below where you see the Read and Write permissions on that folder there is a little triangle next to the word Details. Scroll down a bit and you'll see a tab to click to Apply to Enclosed Items. If it says you have read and write on the main folder, click the Apply button to make sure that all folders inside the main folder also have both Read and Write permission.

  • Cannot open iMovie since update

    Cannot open i movie after most recent update. It runs through all my projects then "quits unexpectedly".
    I've tried opening with Option key being held but same problem.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad and start typing the name.
    Step 1
    For this step, the title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    In the top right corner of the Console window, there's a search box labeled Filter. Initially the words "String Matching" are shown in that box. Enter the name of the crashed application or process. For example, if Safari crashed, you would enter "Safari" (without the quotes.)
    Each message in the log begins with the date and time when it was entered. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    ☞ The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of which is irrelevant to solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    ☞ Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.
    Step 2
    In the Console window, select
              DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION ▹ User Diagnostic Reports
    (not Diagnostic and Usage Messages) from the log list on the left. There is a disclosure triangle to the left of the list item. If the triangle is pointing to the right, click it so that it points down. You'll see a list of crash reports. The name of each report starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report related to the process in question. The contents of the report will appear on the right. Use copy and paste to post the entire contents—the text, not a screenshot.
    I know the report is long, maybe several hundred lines. Please post all of it anyway.
    If you don't see any reports listed, but you know there was a crash, you may have chosen Diagnostic and Usage Messages from the log list. Choose DIAGNOSTIC AND USAGE INFORMATION instead.
    In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.)
    Please don’t post other kinds of diagnostic report—they're very long and rarely helpful.

  • I cannot open apps since update

    I updated my iPad 2 and now I cannot open them. Why is this happening?

    If it is your third party apps that are crashing - and not the preinstalled apps - try downloading another app - any free app will do. It seems to reset something in some weird security thing or something like that. Try it.

  • Cannot open iTunes since downloading os5

    ever since i downloaded the new os5 to my 2 1 st generation ipads i have been unable to open itunes, the app store as well as other random web sites like msnbc and ebay...ant ideas?

    Try closing all apps completely and then do a reset and see if that helps. To close all apps : from the home screen (i.e. not with any app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of the each app to close them, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    To reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

  • I cannot open JAVA since updating Firefox

    I used Java successfully for one web site until my last update with Firefox.  Now Java will not open and a popup explains that the app I tried was not registered with Apple by an identified developer.  Also it says the safest approach is to look for a new version of the app from Mac App Store or check for an alternative from an identified developer.  It also says I can override my security settings and open the app anyway.
    Since I used it for so long I don't understand this glitch or what is safe to do.  I cannot find an app for JAVA for mac in the Mac App store.
    Any one else have this problem?  Any advice on what is safe to do?  I haven't tried to open it within Safari because I didn't want to use Safari for Java.

    DL = download
    SE = standard edition
    JRE = Java Runtime Environment component
    The only way to tell which JRE version you have installed in Lion or larter is to run this commend in the Terminal app:
    /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -version
    It should return something like this:
    java version "1.7.0_67"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_67-b01)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.65-b04, mixed mode)

  • Cannot open pdfs since update.

    I recently updated Adobe Reader and since then I can no longer open some of my archived pdf's that used to open just fine.  This is pretty critical especially with tax time coming up.  I get the message below.
    Acrobat could not open '*.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
    To create an Adobe PDF document, go to the source application.  Then print the document to Adobe PDF.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Yeah, I'm gonna add my frustration to this topic. We have a Vista system running 10.1.4 and a Win7 system running 11.0.01. Both of these systems will no longer open our fax service-generated PDF files. PDF files from other sources still open okay. The help document at is useless as those directory keys do not appear to exist in either our Win7 or Vista systems and I cannot find an equivalent setting.
    Reverting the Win7 system back to 10.1.4 solves the issue. And we have a Vista system running 9.5 which appears to work. So the problem surfaces ONLY when running the latest version and the latest revision on a particular platform. It is highly unlikely that we can get our third-party fax service to rewrite their PDF format anytime soon. So we are at the mercy of Adobe to provide some sort of relief - possibly in the form of a Preferences setting.
    UPDATE: In re-reading the article, I caught that if the key did not exist, I needed to create it. That worked on both systems. It was easier to do using the HKCU setting as the structure was already there.

  • Cannot open Numbers since updating to version 3.1.

    Solutions in forums don't work. Can I uninstall (how ?) and reinstall without paying for it again ? Will that work ?

    I hope your profile is outdated.  Numbers 3.1 needs Mavericks. It won't run on Mountain Lion.
    Solutions in forums don't work.
    Which did you try? Holding down the shift key while relaunchig?
    Can I uninstall (how ?) and reinstall without paying for it again ? Will that work ?
    To uninstall go to Launchpad, find the Numbers icon with the four columns, hold down the option key until the icons quiver, and click the x to delete.  Then go to the Mac App Store and redownload.  You won't have to pay twice.

  • Every time i try to open itunes to update apps for iphone 4s i can never get it to open, i went to command prompt and did the netsh winsock reset, still cannot open itunes

    i cannot open itunes to update apps on my iphone. i did the command prompt-netsh winsock reset, still cannot open itunes.

    Try following steps and test one at a time:
    1. Check to see if this file APSDaemon.exe is the problem here.
    Close your iTunes.
    Press Ctrl-Alt-Del key and choose Task Manager. In the "Processes" Tab, select the file APSDaemon.exe and click End Prosses button, then close the task manager window.
    Now open itunes and see if it is working?
    If that works, to prevent having to do the same process everytime you restart Windows, go to. START button, type in
    Hit ENTER
    Click STARTUP Tab, Uncheck "Apple Push", click OK.
    Restart Windows.
    2. If that fails or you don't see ApsDaemon.exe in the Processes, refer to following article to remove SC files:
    3. If that fails, repair or reinstall your Quicktime. START / CONTROL PANEL / ADD N REMOVE PROGRAMS / hightlight QUICKTIME, click CHANGE or UNINSTALL then REPAIR.

  • ITunes update accepted and updated  but still have 12.01 and cannot open iTunes!

    On a MacMini 2010 era with Maverick 10.9.5 OS.
    Cannot open iTunes after "updating" to 12.1
    Just received an update notice for iTunes to new version 12.1, accepted the update and as required restarted computer.
    Tried to open iTunes - does not open.
    Checking the app info, the iTunes on my computer is still 12.0.1 and I'm unable to open iTunes app in any way.
    Checking the Apple Updates log online it is showing the apps with this update (iTunes 12.1, Safari 7.5.3, Security update 2015-001)  were logged as updated twice on the same date 2/12/15 in the updates record.
    The current version of Safari on my computer is NOT 7.5.3 but is still 7.1.2.  But at least Safari opens and works.
    2 days ago updated my Mac  Air without any problems.
    Help / advice appreciated

    Following another's suggestion I went to Apple online and downloaded iTunes 12.1 dmg  package and installed.
    Solved the iTunes issue, iTunes now opens and  operates.
    Correction: Safari update is 7.1.3 not 7.5.3.  However...
    As far as Safari update and Security update - who knows!  Safari is not an download option with Apple as far as I can tell.

  • Ever since I installed the update of Leopard 10.5.2 I cannot open itunes!!

    Ever since I installed the update of Leopard 10.5.2 I cannot open itunes!!
    I get a message that says:"The itunes library is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file."
    I did do a permissions fix with the disk utility and same problem!
    Any suggestions???
    I think I might be demanding my money back for this Leopard!

  • Recently I updated my iTunes account, but there was an error during installation.  Now I cannot open iTunes as an error message appears.  If I delete iTunes from my laptop then reinstall, will I still have access to all my music etc?

    The reason why I ask, is because I have another laptop which I then installed iTunes on (this was to overcome the issue of the error message and reduce the risk of losing my music etc. on my first laptop).  I cannot see any of my music on the second laptop, even when I attach my iPod.  I authorised the second laptop to link but as I cannot open iTunes on my first laptop, I cannot access my music.  I'm assuming  iTunes accounts are only stored on individual laptops/PCs and cannot be accessed remotely??  Or am I doing something wrong?  I'm not sure what I can do.

    Your iTunes library, media, playlists, and iOS device backups are safe. Please visitTroubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates for details. The steps in the second box should get iTunes back on track.
    I don't make any use of the homesharing feature so I can't really comment on it, but if you want to change which computer you use to manage your devices see this migrate iTunes library post.
