iTunes - Library.itl will not open!


  • Upon scanning and cleaning my PC with Navilog1, it is now impossible to open iTunes!
  • I'm getting this error message:

Unable to read the file Library.itl as it was created with a newer version of iTUNES
I tried uninstalling the current version and then reinstall the latest version, but that didn't solve my problem.


  • In the directory ... \My Documents\My Music\iTunes\Previous iTunes Libraries, you will find the the old versions of the library. Just rename it with the correct name and copy it into the top directory (... \ My *Documents \ My Music \ iTunes)
  • It should be Ok.

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated.
