    For the time being, I'd suggest to keep all Startup item disabled, that are not in your test user account.

     

    The nik-plug-ins seem also to be active for the test-account, so leave them for a moment.

     

    And what is with the presets?

     

    In my Application Support > Aperture folder in my User LIbrary I see:

    If you only see plug-ins, you may be looking at the System Library and not the User Library.

     

    Remember, your User Library is hidden.

    • Quit Aperture, if it is running:
    • Open the user library by using the Finder's "Go " menu and hold down the options-key, until "Library" appears in the drop down menu. Select it.
    • In the widow that will open, scroll down to "Application Support" and open the Aperture folder.

    I have tried to start Aperture and I received this message

    Massimiliano,

    what did you do to open your regular Aperture library from your Test user account? Probably this is now interfering with the permissions and you need to do the reverse, to open it again in your regular account.

     

    Good night!

    Hi, Massimiliano,

    if you look at the other thread, check-out my post there - Re: I can't open my Nik plugins after 3.4 upgrade?

    Re: I can't open my Nik plugins after 3.4 upgrade?lokk at Nikon's website, if you have the newest versions of the plug-ins and if they are sand-boxed. Otherwise they can cause all kinds of problems with Aperture 3.4.

    Regards

    Massimiliano,

     

    Is Aperture still crashing, or what is happening now after you tried all the fixes? Did you install the last update to aperture 3.4.1 in the meantime? That is supposed to fix the bugs caused by the last update.

     

     

    Is possible to go back to previous library version? I

    That is only possible, if you have a back up of the Aperture library from before the upgrade.

     

    You would have to revert to an earlier Aperture version using the trial version, then upgrade to Aperture 3.3. from the support page.

    I am really sorry, that none of the fixes that I know has helped so far.

    Have you considered to get help at the nearest AppleStore?

     

    Is Aperture hanging while finishing the repair? Or did the repair succeed, and Aperture is hanging after opening the library again?

     

    is Aperture the only application, that makes the Mac run hot and very slow?

    The only other thing I can say is that Dashboard now doesn't retain any change and when I restart go always to standard and this is also for Apple account that always asked if has to save password and evey time I connect again ask for password anyway.

    There may be a problem with your system drive; I'd verify the drive, and, if necessary, repair the system drive. See the instructions here in Pondini's Time Machine manual:

     

    Time Machine - Troubleshooting A5. How to Repair or Verify Disk

     

    Also I'd run a general hardware check over night:

     

    Intel-based Macs: Using Apple Hardware Test

     

    If there are problems with the system drive, that needed repairing, and the problems persist, I'd recommend to reinstall the system.

     

    When you are sure, your hardware is o.k., rebuild the Aperture library.

    You are welcome, Massimo. I hope the Mac Store will be able to help you.

    Good Luck.
