iTunes opening error due to another user

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello experts,

I have this problem with iTunes. I am the only user on my PC and I have all the administrator rights. All the time it says that the program is opened by another user. I close all the unnecessary processes and even the reboot is not helping. Does anyone have any idea about this weird error ?

Thank you experts !

Cannot Open iTunes

You cannot open the application ‘iTunes’ because another user has it open.

Ask the other user to quit the application, then try again.

iTunes opening error due to another user



iTunes is a great software for entertainment purpose. It’s a free software at the same time. You can’t open iTunes on both account at the same time. If you have several user accounts on your system, a fast user account switching doesn’t close a user session so easily.

In order to fix this issue, logout of your user account, login into the user account that used iTunes for the last time. Close iTunes there, and then login into any other account and launch iTunes. Here’s the Apple KB explaining this issue.

If possible, updating iTunes is recommended. Download iTunes.
