I have an aperture library done with version 3.1.1. I have upgraded aperture to version 3.3.2 and now I can't open the library done in version 3.1.1. Any clue?

    What happens when you open the 3.1.1 library in 3.3.2? Aperture should give you the option of upgrading the library.


    How are you trying to open the library? What messages or errors are you getting?

    Is it in Time Machine (a backup) or are you using the Time Capsule as a normal disk?


    If it is in Time Machine you need to restore it before opening it, you can't access while it is in Time Machine.


    If you are using the Time Capsule as a normal network disk try opening Aperture while holding down the option and command keys. This will open Aperture's library first aid window. From there try running Repair Permissions.


    However keep in mind a few things; one the Time Capsule is seen as a network drive and Aperture really needs to have the library on a local directly connected drive so this may not work at all or may be very slow. It would be best if you copied the library from the Time Capsule to a local drive on the Mini.

    OK you never answered any of the questions I asked in my last reply.  I can't continue with this until you do.
