    iTunes music stopped when user switching


    Hi,

    If iTunes is launched with User A account, when I switch to user B account on the same machine, iTunes music is stopped and I would like music continue...like in Windows 7....

    How can I solved this ? Is it possible to indicate to iTunes to not be suspended when user switch and continue to play music in background ?

    Thanks a lot for your help

    I have found the best solution: rollback to Windows 7.

    Hi Guilz and welcome to Eight Forums!

    Cause it's now seperate boxes. Logged in User's A account doesn't affect User's B account. Unless it's locked and youre just waking computer. Other way it's freezeing procccessess

    You can't really. You have to open iTunes again. It's safety feature. Sandbox like in Chrome. It's harder to hack now

    I'm using foobar2000, much better than Itunes I think (lightweight with no bloat, a LOT of plugins, very customizable). With WASAPI output (bit perfect output for purists), music keeps playing even when switching users.
