The iTunes application could not be opened [Solved/Closed]

 Angel -

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.

Any takers?

I looked all over the web to fix my problem to no success, until I found this info and then it was easy. Hope it helps whoever else has this problem:
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.
Thank you

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

Works for me. Could be because I'm on a windows 7 domain, and the 'my documents' folder is redirected, and therefore unavailable when offline.
Worked for me. Same folder redirection problem
i am unable to choose the library thereafter.. what to do ?
