Even after re-installing I still get the same error.
Anyone had this problem? Any fixes?
OK, your Library showed corruption and you ran The Check Library.
Did you run BOTH sections? The first checks the database for (data) structural
errors (It could be garbage, but it is Valid
). The second part matches the data to the Library files.
Did you check your system First? (Checkdisk, Malware scans...)
That generic message implies (to me), that there is some serious (and non-specific) folder corruption.
You might try running in Debug mode to try the rebuild, to get an idea where the choke point is.
But first. Validate your HD and computer
