The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.
Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.
Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.
I just got a new computer and am trying to add my newly migrated iTunes library to the Soundtouch app (version 18.1.4). I removed the old iTunes library from my old computer and uninstalled the app there. Then installed the application on the new computer and am trying to add the library. However, when I go to add the library the option for iTunes is grayed out. I have triple checked that iTunes streaming and xml sharing is allowed. I have also made sure that media streaming is enabled on the new computer.
Thanks for posting in the community! Sorry to hear you're running into issues, but would be happy to help!
When installing the new SoundTouch app on the computer, was this done through the Microsoft app store or through the Bose.com website? If it was installed through the app store, could you uninstall the app and reinstall from this link HERE?
Let us know how it goes!

Thanks for taking some time to try to help. I really appreciate it. I did indeed install from the BOSE website originally (the link you've provided). I've actually tried uninstalling and re-installing a few times but always with the same results.
Originally, I thought it may have been because I still had the soundtouch app still installed on my old computer so I started that back up, removed the library, uninstalled and then deleted/reinstalled on the new computer. Unfortunately though, iTunes is stilled grayed out as an option.
Thanks for testing that out. Do you happen to have any third party firewalls on the computer? If so, can we try and temporarily disable them to see if that's what's causing the Library option to be grayed out.

We are having the exact same problem, no option to add an itunes library as greyed out. Deleted app, made sure settings were as per Bose recommendations, speakers and computer all on same network etc etc and no joy, Would love an answer to this question as so frustrated.
Thanks for reaching out to us!
Was iTunes installed in the Program Files x86 folder with the SoundTouch app?
Can we try and reboot the router and the speakers by removing power for 30 seconds?
Let us know how it goes!
It is very frustrating especially considering that I've had it set up like this for a year or two on my old computer with no issues. It just won't allow me to add itunes as a source on the new one for no obvious reason.
As a temp workaround I'm just exporting the playlists that I'm interested in from iTunes and putting them in a folder and linked the storage as a NAS source. It's pretty stupid that I have to do that...but at least it'll work for now.
Hi again Tony,
I do not. I've also disabled the standard Windows firewall completly but it did not change anything. As someone else suggested below I have also rebooted both of my soundtouch systems by unplugging them and it has not changed anything either.
Thanks for the update!
This is certainly strange since it was working with previous machines. I'm going to reach out to you via PM to gather a bit more information and have this escalated to our development team.
Thanks for reaching out again. I've recieved your PM and will try to gather the logs you've requested in the next day or two as I have time.
