Recover from a 'Library is locked' iTunes error
Authored by: dimented1 on Sep 12, '10 01:10:11PM

I realize this post is old... from 2003 initially, right?

I have OS/X Leopard; iTunes 10.

I share an iTunes library with my wife's account. During this last upgrade, I started getting a 'Library is locked' error when starting iTunes on my account. I located the iTunes library file (the directory that holds all things iTunes) and viewed info on it. Then Iocated my account in the "Sharing & Permissions" section; I was there with "Read & Write" access. I clicked on the 'cog' wheel at the bottom of the iTunes info popup and selected "Apply to enclosed items".

That did the job for my account and now I can access iTunes once again. I'm not sure what that will do to my wife's account!
