I have had multiple attempts failed, which are followed by a warning message to repair the library.

After clicking to repair library it does so successfully and then tries to reopen Apreture, which proceeds

to fail and the cycle starts over again.  What may be causing this/ How do i go about fixing it?

    I had a similar thing happen, not exactly the same, after updating to 10.8.2 Ap would open but would go black if I tried to take a photo to "full screen".  I closed and reopened a couple of times, repaired permistions, etc.  I then got a pop-up that there was an Aperture update.  Applied it and all is good.  Try check for software updates.

    I'm also having the exact same problem. I'm on 10.8.2, have the latest patch of Aperture 3.4 installed and it just keeps saying my library needs repairing, completes the repair then crashes.


    I've checked the Aperture crash report and it says:


    *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSInvalidArgumentException', reason: '*** -[NSURL initWithScheme:host:path:]: path 819119309 is not absolute.'

    Here's your solution. I had the same problem and the Genius at the Apple store was actually friends with the guy who wrote 3.4.
