Hi, so I read the blog post and realized that the issue was likely due to
the fact that my iTunes folders was not properly set up. So i"ve now gone
through and fixed the folders, however that seems to have totally thrown
off beaTunes. I have tried to delete all of the files associated with
beaTunes and re-download but I still keep getting error messages even
through I've installed a "clean copy." These are the error messages that I
get, in the order that they come up:
Then when I click yes on the first window in the message above (would I
like to re-build beaTunes' internal database from your audio files), I get
I click ok, and then it says beaTunes shutting down, and then...nothing
happens. If I try to start it up again, we through the same steps above.

There isn't a beaTunes file in the applications support folder? What on earth happened?
macOS has multiple Application Support folders. One on the system level and one on the user level. You need the one on the user level, i.e. the one that is in ~/Library/Application Support. The ~ stands for "user home" directory, not for "disk root". The reason it is difficult to find, is that Apple decided a couple of years ago that the Library folder in the user's home needs to be hidden from the user (god knows why). You can "unhide" it or simply use the Command-Shift-G shortcut in Finder to navigate to ~/Library/Application Support directly.
No need to respond anymore. I just used an uninstall program, reinstalled, and now it is fine.
