Rant in 3....2....1.....
Ok, I give up. I just spent two hours on Apple's newest batshit crazy bullshit trying to rectify a totally incredibly STUPID design choice on their part which they coated in sugarcoat lies to fuck us over again.
their newest iTunes version for the pc removes App store functionality......AND app management alltogether....
what this means? No download of apps trough iTunes, no manual app management etc.
This is a sneaky sneaky move to further screw us 32-bit App/ Game Nerds over.
I am at fault for not realizing this before updating to the newest version of iTunes.
Now I spent 2 hours for backing up my old mediathek and reinstalling an older iTunes version 10.2.6.2 (newest iTunes 10.2.7) and it now complains it cannot open my iTunes libary.itl because it was made by a newer iTunes version.
After deleting the specific file I could run iTunes but it STILL doesn't show my apps or any appstore
And also i still don't know if restoring iTunes would help.....what if they simply turn off the app store for iTunes alltogether (even for older iTunes versions) simply by updating the store to the newest iOS11 cough functionality by proclaiming the usual bullshit to present a more "sleek and fun use" of the iTunes "experience" as a pure "entertainment suite" or whatever....
Don't update your iTunes to 10.2.7 yet
If you did, my comiserations
If you didn't because you were less an idiot than me, good for you still backup your app libary right the hell now.
For any useful help I would be grateful. In the meantime sorry for the childish rant and for....
