iTunes library is in a locked folder, iTunes problem with Domain and roaming profiles

I have an interesting twist on an old problem. There are lots of posts which have examples of the error message stating the the iTunes folder is on a locked drive, but none that I apply to the situation I have run across. I have a client using Windows 7 on a Domain with roaming profiles and they have constant problems with the iTunes folder. In this particular case iTunes states that the iTunes library is on a locked disk. The thing is that there are many possible locations for the iTunes folder and I've checked them all, the permissions are fine so I can't see why the error is occurring. Here is what I want to try next and I'd love any advice on how to do this.

It would be nice to change the iTunes library location before the program opens to a location that is local and that I am 100% sure I have full permissions to.

If anyone has any advice on how to do that or to further troubleshoot the problem it is much appreciated.

One other thing I'd like to try is moving the default location of 'Music' in the user library, but I'm not sure how to do that either. Help appreciated.

Open iTunes
From the EDIT menue, choose PREFERENCES.
Click on ADVANCED and you will see the location fo the iTunes library.  Click on CHANGE to change the location to a local folder.

you can definately do this, I did a similar thing with a client getting a new PC.

make sure you have all the music and library *.itl in a central place, (usually my music) etc. copy the whole folder where you want it to go.

then.. browse to itunes in your programs and then hold shift as you click itunes.. it'll then ask you WHICH library you want to open. you navigate to your new library and hey presto.

(if you can gain access to your itunes first, make sure you do the itunes consolodate files etc. it makes it neater)

Please note that holding shift when you start iTunes may not work from a shortcut - you may have to browse out to C:\Program Files\iTunes and hold shift while clicking on itunes.exe and keep holding shift until the program starts up and presents you with the option to choose the library.
