I only wish I had the same witch doctors at home. So, when iTunes, the treasure-bearer of my 4,000+ song catalog failed to launch, I felt the swamp waters of my psyche rise to a flood.
At first I tried to ignore the problem and continued with other computer-based missions, making sure to reboot the machine each night, hoping the iTunes fault was a mere fluke. Weeks of error messages belied that it was no fluke. If I wanted my music, I was going to have to seek out a spellbook of solutions.
Thankfully, after just a few rounds of search results, I came upon an article that accurately described my dilemma, and, miraculously, offered a step-by-step solution in layman's terms.
So, thank you, Tim Fisher, for your easy-to-follow juju, which has restored my mysti cmsvcr80.dll. Praise be to Ogun!
