    When I quit iTunes the window closes and the glowing dot fades out. Then it comes straight back.

    Also I thought iTunes was now 64-bit? But Activity Monitor says its 32-bit.

    Why would you download and install a pre-release OS on your only computer as your only OS anyway? I believe it is even illegal if you are not a developer. (I assume you are not because otherwise you would not be asking this question here because of your NDA.) Anyway, you are stuck with it until the actual discs are released because it updates your EFI so Leopard can't boot.

    You probably don't have the golden master Snow Leopard. BTW I downloaded and im using the GM as my main OS because it will be ages until Ireland sells it then i'll purchase it;)

    You may need to Verify and Repair Disk permissions.

    I am using 10a432 (The same thing that will be in stores). I am buying SL on the first day anyway so there's no harm in it.

    Sigh. It says right on Apple's page about Snow Leopard that the iTunes it ships with (and DVD Player, Grapher... look for footnote #1) aren't 64-bit. Stay tuned for iTunes 9, which is probably 64-bit ...

    I thought that it wasn't, but I saw somebody earlier saying that iTunes loaded up much faster when running it as 64-bit, so I was confused.

    So wait, is the iTunes (and most of the other apps, for that matter) on Leopard 64-bit? And in Snow Leopard, some applications have been downgraded to 32-bit?

    From Apple's website:

    "All system applications except DVD Player, Front Row, Grapher, and iTunes have been rewritten in 64-bit."

    I have been running Snow leopard since WWDC 09 as main OS and never looked back.

    I doubt you'll see a 64 bit iTunes anytime soon. They may not carry the OS forward on PPC, but they won't cut off there App's this soon. That would just be cruel!

    There's no reason they couldn't do both. Or maybe iTunes 8 will be there just for 32 bit and PPC.

    That would require an ADC account.

    Legit makes no odds

    I upgraded to Snow Leopard today and found the same problem with iTunes as original post. If I have iTunes set to Open at Login, then once logged in, I try to quit iTunes, it keeps opening again. Doesn't seem to re-open if not set to Open at Login.
