How to restore itunes library after updating itunes
Now just go through the steps to install the new version of i Tunes, and you should be good to go!
If you do get an earlier version like I had to do on my 64-bit Windows system, don’t bother trying to update it because it’s going to want you to get i Tunes 12.
But when I tried the same steps on a Windows 7 32-bit system with version 11.1.5, I received a different error that I will need to deal with – but that’s a separate issue.
The point is, your experience may vary so make sure you’ve backed up the important stuff or create a Restore Point before starting this.
I arrived at Apple this morning to talk to them about my issues with Apple Music and to hopefully fix my problems.
The good news is that I have about 99 percent of my music back. The missing and duplicate song issues that we’ve all seen in Apple Music are being fixed shortly.
i Tunes, in general, won our Worst Software Ever award, and it looks like version 12 would have no problem winning it again in a landslide victory.To its credit, Apple does offer the ability to download older versions of i Tunes for Windows and Mac.Download an earlier version of i Tunes for Windows.Before, you would turn off i Tunes Match—now you would turn off i Cloud Music Library.So now I have the i Tunes Match service that I pay for separately, and Apple Music, both of which use i Cloud Music Library.
