    Okay, here's the deal. I currently have the iTunes 8.2 installed on my Leopard MBP and I need to delete the entire program so I can install the BETA 8.2 version of iTunes instead.

    I know I should be able to just delete the iTunes folder itself but I'm not sure if that will delete the entire iTunes program.

    so I'm asking the pros in this section of the forum. how would you guys and gals delete iTunes so it can be reinstalled with a different version?

    Downgrading software can be a very complicated, if impossible, process. iTunes is more than just its binary, it includes lots of Mobile Device Support files in other locations plus more.

    If you must have a lesser version of iTunes than you currently do, reinstall the OS and upgrade to the version needed.

    If you have TM, you can go to a later version of iTunes from a TM backup, I think. It worked with Safari.
