iTunes - The iTunes application could not be opened

May 2016


I am unable to open iTunes. A pop up window reads: The iTunes application could not be opened. The required folder cannot be found. I have tried the press and hold shift key and launch method to no avail.


To solve this:
  • Press and hold on the shift key then run the Itunes,
  • The menu will ask you to create new library, follow this, it will sort it out your problem.
