Windows 7: Problems with permissions...

Problems with permissions...

Hi everyone,

Recently I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit Build 7600 on a dual boot with my Vista 32bit. I tried to install iTunes on Windows 7 and than use the iTunes .xml & .itl to utilize the library on my Vista partition however I cannot get all of the songs to run on Windows 7 as some don't have the permissions.

At this point there is nothing but chaos when it comes to the sharing with my music folder on Vista. I have gone through all the folders within the iTunes folder on Vista and made the permissions set to everyone full control but it I still have some songs (about 25%) not getting the permissions.

I can even see on Windows 7 in the Vista music folder that some of the songs don't pull in all the information (ie. album, artist,track #, etc). But I can't figure out why only some are not getting the permissions...

anyways is there anyway to start over with this sharing nonsense or is there some way to get the entire music folder and all files within legit shared! This has been nothing but a headache but I really like '7'
