To re-install iPhoto
1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
2a: On 10.5: Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows: In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
2c: on 10.7 they're at
A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
If you purchased it on the App Store or have a Recent Mac you can find it in your Purchases List.

I'm having the same problem. I had iPhoto '09, but I haven't been able to get it to sync with my iPhone, so I can't download my photos. I figured upgrading to iPhoto '11 would fix that, so I bought it through the app store and installed it and got this error. I have tried everything (including your exact steps) 10 times, and no matter how many times I delete all of the files and reinstall it I get the same error. I am running OS 10.7.3 on a Macbook Pro and all of my software is up to date. I have also restarted multiple times, but nothing has helped. Any other solutions?

Tried that and it's giving me the same problem under the other username. It seems to install fine from the app store, it just won't open and gives me the same error screen everytime.

iPhoto cannot be opened because of a problem.
Check with the developer to make sure iPhoto works with this version of Mac OS X. You may need to reinstall the application. Be sure to install any available updates for the application and Mac OS X.
