Hello--

I've gotten into a mess with iTunes, after installing version 8.0. It requires Quicktime 7.5.5 to run and I cannot install that version of QT; I have a Media 100 system in the same computer (G4 MDD, running the latest version of Tiger for PPC Macs), and the Media 100 won't work on Quicktime 7.5.5.

I know that I am a chump for using the Media 100. That is a bigger problem, which I am solving over a period of months. In the meantime, I need specifically to find and reinstall the last incarnation of iTunes 7 to hear my music again.

Where can I find it?

You may be OK I think it only needs the new quicktime to play any NEW video purchases from the iTunes store.

Yeah, I don't care about playing videos in iTunes, so one would expect it not to be a problem... BUT the WHOLE PROGRAM will not open without the latest Quicktime installed, which I cannot do for the reason I stated earlier.

That is why I am simply asking for a link to install the latest previous version of iTunes. I have backed up a version of iTunes 7 from back in January, but it is too old to read the Library file and won't open either. So a link to download the version that was current as of June or July will probably be sufficient, I would guess.

The biggest problem is not getting the old application. The BIG problem is that it has already updated your iTunes library file to a iTunes 8 file.

Okay, I got minimally intelligent and trashed the old Library file. Now I need only reimport the nearly 100GB of music back into iTunes 7.whatever.whatever that I got. It's gonna be Oooookaaaay.

FWIW, though there are those sad lonely people out there who for whatever cannot run QT 7.5.5 who will have big twoubles, it seems, w/ iTunes 8.0.
