    As that article was published before Windows 7 was released it was probably an XP or Vista hack. Plus MediaMonkey will have changed in that time, meaning the workaround no longer works.

    According to this page - - there is a new method you may want to try. I cannot vouch for whether it will work but I have my fingers crossed for you as I hate iTunes.
