I had a problem launching iTunes 7.3 also. As it turned out, it was having a conflict with Shapeshifter. So I disabled Shapeshifter and quit any running apps. I clicked on iTunes with nothing else going on and it worked. After I clicked the agree to the TOS or whatever it is called, I enabled Shapeshifter and it all works fine for me.

I still can't get my iTunes 7.3 to open/launch. Just woke up and was hoping some little elf's would sneak into my house to fix the problem overnight while I was sleeping but.... it didn't happen. Guess I'll have to wait for a fix.... Confused


I would try trashing the com.apple.iTunes.plist, com.apple.iTunesHelper.plist, and com.apple.iTunes.eq.plist files in your ~/Library/Preferences folder.



Hi devo... Thanks for the suggestion. I trashed the files you listed above in your reply but still no luck. Gonna have to wait for the fix from Apple... 7.3.1

I'm sorry to hear that. What about checking for problematic startup items or apps running? SOCOMRAIDER brings up a good point about Shapeshifter.

I guess I missed that reply earlier in the thread about Shapeshifter possibly being a problem. Sure enough I temporarily disabled it and iTunes finally launched...!!! Thanks for all the help guys...!!!

Now I hope it won't take long for my iPhone ot show up. I was really surprised to see 2-4 weeks for shipping from the Apple Store online. I should've just went to a retail AT&T store...!!!

heavy_nutz.... did you get your iPhone today...?

The Apple stores should have iPhones available. Apple's iPhone Availability page shows green dots at every Apple store.

I should've just bought mine at a local Apple store or AT&T store instead of ordering online. If I would've know shipping would be 2-4 weeks I would've never bought it online. I hate waiting for really cool stuff like the iPhone...!!!

It's good to hear that you got it working. I know Shapeshifter can cause trouble after a lot of updates, but you'll have to thank SOCOMRAIDER for bringing it up.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it ship way before that. I think Apple is just trying to be cautious.

I hope you're right.... It's been quite a while since I had a new tech toy to play with. I hope it ships this coming week.
