iTunes 10.1.1 update causing crashes instead of fixing them - Page 2

post #41 of 65
All,

I've reinstalled from the apple latest release, and iTunes hangs shortly after starting - ten seconds, perhaps. I get no error message, just the lovely spinning wheel... This started after the update to 10.1.1, and continues even after two downloads of the full version.

This may be all to obvious but have you tried trashing the prefs file and then restarting? Your issue sounds a bit different from what most are posting.

Best of luck - I know how annoying it can be chasing something like this.

BTW - I used Software Update on my 2007 iMac and had no problems at all. Sorry some are having problems.

This whole thing seems overblown to me. A very few people are having problems, and the symptoms are inconsistent. I say user error.

So, none of those experiencing problems have any 3rd party crapware with iTunes hooks that could be causing the problem?

Right?

Our machines upgraded just fine through SU.

Very good advice, imo.

My guess is that some people are having problems with the download process, which is why an install directly from the Apple site usually works. But if the problem is the prefs file then that would need to be trashed to solve things.

Working fine on my 13" MacBook (2008), MBP 15" (2009) and iMac 3.06 GHz (2009).

Actually, its not the specifics of the problem, its the fact that whenever Apple can be noted to have a PROBLEM with ANYTHING... blogs like this live to rant and rave.

Ever notice you do not see...... "4 users noted some problem with an Apple update on the ... blog"? Instead you get..... "APPLE DOOMED...... NEW UPDATE...XXXXX CRASHES USERS COMPUTERS..... HELL FREEZES OVER.... " type wording.... at least in the title.

Just a thought,
en

Plus its 26 degrees here in florida.... maybe Hell is freezing over.... LOL

Late '08 MBP running OS 10.6.5, updated via Apple's Software Update with no problems and it's running fine.

May hold off updating the other two Macs now that I've seen this article though.

iMac mid-2008 here. I did the install from Software Update. I even have third-party visualizers installed. Worked like a charm.

Wrong. After reading the article, I fired up iTunes, and it immediately crashed without even opening. Fall 2010 MacPro, 6 core, 10.6.5.

Thanks to posters on this forum, I downloaded the new version from Apple's site, installed it and it works fine. AI is exactly right.

MacBook Pro 10.6.5 - loaded via Software Update - repeated crashes - download from Apple.com got it going again

But... this is neither magical and wonderful or revolutionary! I thought everything that Apple did was all that, and more. Could it be that applications written for an environment make a difference?

No worries with monthly iTunes updates they will fix it in the next 50-100meg download....or umm update.

Apple's official procedure for removing iTunes from a Mac:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1224

So much for "just drag it to the trash". Apple should seriously start working on implementing uninstallation and dependency checking features in their package installer. Rather than telling people "just drag it to the trash" and then publishing articles like the one above.

Thursday is my software updates night. Just ran the software update software and everything works great on my iMac 27" (running the latest Snow Leopard). Sorry others may be having problems.

From your link...

Products Affected
iTunes 8 for Mac, iTunes 9 for Mac, iTunes 7 for Mac

FWIW, the two Macs I've updated both work fine with 10.1.1 installed via Software Update.
The problem is likely not with the package per se, but with a corrupt copy on one of many update servers.

Had "iTunes cannot be opened because of a problem.". :/ *is on a MacBook Pro 5,5* Gonna try and reinstall it from their website.

I say it's easy to say It's hard for me to understand how "user error" applies to using software update (did I confirm with the wrong finger?) But hey.

It is a bit different from what is described. The only unusual thing I saw with the new messages were two alerts saying that the identity certs of the iTunes store were not signed by a trusted authority. I doubt I was a victim of a real MIM attack. The only announced security fixes in 10.1.1 that I could find were for WebKit for Windows, and I'm on a MB Air.

I restored the ITunes app and the library to 10.0.1 (22) from TimeMachine and am back in the air. I use both my iPhone and iPad at work and am glad I can back them up again. I'll try a roll forward when I have some time, or just wait for the next version.

I sent a few logs to Apple, but I doubt much is done with these things...

Thanks, all,
Keith

Don't worry about it, that was just the latest in a long line of aliases for a repeat troll who likes to post brain-damaged "fan boy" style-- which is why he's banned (again). When you see someone with a low post count and a slightly dim-witted posting style it's probably the same guy-- he'll be back for sure.

Mid 2010 13" Macbook Pro. Not working via software update. And it doesn't work when I download it off Apple.com either.

Also the recent Aiport utility update crashes. Even downloaded manually. Worst of all now the machine boots slower And sometimes hangs completely. Bummer....
