I see Apple released iTunes 105.2 today. Anyone have any luck with the Match issues after updating? I'm downloading it now and will post my results.

EDIT
Nope, same thing. It just crashes my iTunes when I try to "add this computer" to iTunes Match. I wish I hadn't paid the $25 before I knew it didn't work for my rig. :cry:

Same here. I didn't have high expectations from the update, but disappointing anyway to know that we're eating into our $25/yr period until someone smarter than me figures out how to work around this problem.

Match issues aside, is it safe to do the iTunes update to 10.5.2? It seems I have to do it in order to be able to read the library that I dragged over from the macbook. I just didn't think when installing it on that one...

So I backed up the system drive and installed the iTunes update. So far it seems to work fine for me. I didn't check out the match feature or the genius or ping things yet. Match would be cool, though.

So, I contacted their support saying essentially "I can't get Match working on my Mac and I'd like a refund"

iTunes Support said:
Moving on, please note that your request for a refund for "iTunes Match" was carefully considered; however, according to the iTunes Store Terms of Sale, all purchases made on the iTunes Store are final. This policy matches Apple's refund policies and provides protection for copyrighted materials.

Guess we're out of luck :thumbdown:

Yep, I haven't had any trouble with iTunes as a whole, it just seems to be the Match and Genius features that have been crashing it recently. Ping should work, FWIW...
