Cannot open the application "iTunes" because another user is open.

I recently bought a new computer with vista. Installed iTunes on this computer and found that there is a problem between the two profiles on the computer. I run iTunes on my profile - but whenever my wife profile is active we are getting consistent error messages indicating "cannot open the application"iTunes"as another user, he has opened." Ask the other user to quit the application and try again.

I need to keep itunes open in my profile - and anyway, why are they bent them in two profiles in Vista... we never had this problem under XP.
I asked Apple for advice, and they suggested to install itunes in the second profile... which I did and said to reinstall/repair...which is not the goal... Apple then told me to contact Microsoft support as he would have to do with the admin files...
Any advice pls.
Thank you

Find the Itunes.exe in the Itunes folder in Program Files.  Right click on the .exe / Properties / compatibility, look down at the bottom of this page for the 'privilege level' and check the box that says "change settings for all users.  In the heartbeat window according to the box that says "run this program as an administrator".  This can only solve your problem if you can both run under the same user name.

When you run a program as an administrator you should get a quick UAC (unless maybe you have turned off UAC?

To see the file extensions, you may need to go into Control Panel / folder Options / discovers, there you can uncheck "hide known file type.

  • Cannot open the application "Mail" because PowerPC applications are no longer supported

    I work on a MacBook Pro mid 2012

    Intel Core i5 2.5 GHz

    OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

    The Mail app suddenly quit and when I tried to resume, I got this message

    "Cannot open the application"Mail"because the PowerPC applications are no longer supported."

    This also happens with the "Maps" app

    All Mac software are up to date, but "Mail" has been working fine since my last update that was awhile ago.

    I am confused to say the least. Suggestions? Thank you!

    If you do a Get Info (command - I) on Mail and Maps applications, what version numbers do you see?

    Try a reboot.

    Make a backup using Time Machine or a cloning program, to ensure that data files can be recovered. Two backups are better than one.

    Try to set up another admin user account to see if the same problem persists. If back to my Mac is enabled in system preferences, the guest account will not work. The intention is to see if it is specific to an account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.

    Isolate a problem by using a different user account

    If the problem is still there, try to start safe mode using your usual account.  Disconnect all devices except those necessary for the test. Shut down the computer and then put it up after a 10 second wait. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the SHIFT key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear. Startup is considerably slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a check for directory and disables all start-up and connection, among other things. When you restart normally, the initial restart may be slower than normal. If the system is operating normally, there may be 3rd party applications that pose a problem. Try to delete/disable the third-party applications after a reboot using the UN-Installer. For each disable/remove, you need to restart if you do them all at once.

    In simple terms, simply copy it to an external drive and then copy them back as the other user.  If files are protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management) as iTunes from Apple or Napster, you will need to know your service music, if the files can be copied.

  • DPS App Builder Mac - files download .ipa .zip of error - cannot sign the application

    I'm about to go crazy with this DP App Builder error:

    -Buil-in App a simple edition

    -Application created within DPS App Builder with no problems

    -After finishing, I always get a download error the .ipa or the .zip saying:

    "Cannot sign the application. Check the certificate files are correct, then try to recreate the folio and a new application and try to download the application again. »

    After reading similar problems, I generated certificates more than 10 times, in different computers and nothing, still the same error.

    I followed the tip of Adobe in order to avoid special characters in the names of articles. Created the Folio Builder app. Nothing...

    Any ideas? Any help, please?

    Hi Christophe,

    Thank you for your message.

    But, in fact, I just finished for trash in the folio and re-created a new.

    And I say, that it was not easy because I took several hours, this...


    It worked.

    He wasn't a certificate problem, it was a problem from Adobe!

    Files and InDesign documents are the same. Everything is the same.

    The worst part is that the DPS and Adobe process give us a hint about what might be wrong.

    Nothing... the only way is to wast hours and hours to search the forums and trying to test all kinds of things without knowing what is happening...

    However and once more, I thank you for your response.
