10.7: Fix for iTunes preventing installation of Xcode 4.1 Apps
When installing Lion's version of Xcode (4.1) you may get an error that iTunes must be closed before installing (even if it appears to already be closed).

This is pretty frustrating since I had no other applications open during the install. But in Activity Monitor, iTunes Helper (the Start up Item I always forget about) was still running. Force quitting that will let the installer finish. Just an FYI for those trying to install.

[crarko adds: I'm guessing this conflict is caused by the ability of both iTunes and Xcode to communicate with iOS devices (soon wirelessly).]

There's no need to "force quit" iTunes Helper. A normal quit will do it.

I had to Force Quit

I tried a normal "Quit" in Activity Monitor first, but it did not work. It took a "Force Quit" for it to work for me. YMMV,

same here

i force quit it when the installation progress was about 3/4 through/hanging, restarted Lion.
Funny thing: it had it all finished installing though upon restart.
Ran the installer from the launch pad again and it "updated" it. Than it worked all fine.
