After upgrading my Mac OSX to 10.10.4 and iTunes to 12.2, the iTunes music library XML file is not created under /users/music/iTunes folder. I tried creating the xml file manually, but it gets deleted after 5-10 seconds automatically. Any workaround to resolve this problem?
iTunes 12.2 definitely still generates an
iTunes Music Library.xml file. From my machine, running 10.10.4 and iTunes 12.2:
~/Music/iTunes$ ls -l "iTunes Music Library.xml" -rw-r--r--@ 1 mj staff 109833070 Jul 2 14:20 iTunes Music Library.xml
That date and time stamp are the date and time I last exited iTunes.
That said, you can recreate the XML file. Apple has document HT201561 that describes the process as well as the purpose of the XML file and when it gets recreated, but note all of the warnings in that document.
Update: The generation of the XML is now optional in iTunes 12.2 - check Preferences > Advanced and set the option Share iTunes Library XML with other applications
