Downgrade to iTunes 10.7

by lesparapluies / December 20, 2012 12:48 AM PST

I have successfully downgraded from the quite horrible iTunes 11 to !0.7. All works fine (coverflow restored!) except I get an error message (-42408) whenever I start the program. It seems quite happy to run OK once this message is skipped over, but does anyone know how I can stop it appearing? Can't find any reference to it on the internet

Many thanks for that reply - I had actually Googled it several times that day but your link brought up several things I'd missed - the solution was to use Pacifist and it worked like a dream. Everything restored to 10.7 and no annoying messages

This is nothing I've done myself but I was trying to see if anyone cracked it. I only use iTunes to sync so it rarely bothers me if iTunes changes. All I need is sync
