I updated Aperture to 3.4. I opened the Application.  It said it needed to upgrade my libarry, then immediately quit and returned an "Aperture quit unexpectedly" error.  I reopened Aperture. It said "finding Aperture Library" then immediately quit, returning another "Aperture quit unexpectedly" error.  I get the same result over and over, even with the "shift" key held down when attempting to open the application. 


I also get the same result when holding the "option" key down (it does show me a list of available libraries and lets me select one, but then returns the error). The first time I tried this, I selected the most recent library dated prior to the upgrade.  When I got no joy, I tried again and that library now no longer appears in the list. And I cannot open any of the libraries that do.


If I can't even launch the application, I can't rebuild the library. I've searched the discussions and googled this problem to no avail.  Any ideas, anyone?

    Do the comments in the other current threads help you with what you are seeing? Is it the same? Can you post the first 50 or so lines of your crash log?

    In the recent MacOS versions LIon/Mt. Lion the user Library is hidden.

    You can reveal it from the Finder's "Go" menu in the main menu bar:


    Finder > Go


    Then hold down to options-key ⌥, until Library appears in the drop-down menu. Select it and open the Library.

    In the window that opens select the "Preferences" folder - you will find the Aperture.plist there. Move it to the Desktop, then try again to launch Aperture.


    Removing the preference file will result in reverting all preferences you set using the "Preference" panel to default, also the layout of the GUI and the "recent" file list, but all your "Presets" will not be changed.

    Are you looking in the correct Library? Its in your 'user' Library. That's hidden by default. Find it in Finder by holding the 'alt' key and looking in the 'Go' menu. 'Alt' will show/hide the Library.
