The App Store says I have an upgrade to iPhoto. When I attempt to upgrade via the App Store, I am told I must upgrade via "other accounts." When I attempt to apply upgrades via the iPhoto upgrade download page, I am told that I must upgrade via the App Store.

 

In light of the seemingly contradictory messages, how do I upgrade my iPhoto software?  What am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

    iPhoto is registered to another Apple ID. Login with this Apple ID and update the app

    Insert the iLife DVD and reinstall iPhoto. Then, open  > Software Update and install the latest iPhoto version: 9.4.1

    If you insatalled iPhoto 9 from the  iLife 11 disk then use the updaters from the Apple Downloads page to update to the version you need. You may get to a point where you will need to get the final version, 9.4.1, from the App Store.

    Contact the App Store for some direction.

    I am having the exact same problem.  I don't know what to do, I'm using 9.4.1 right now.  I have the 9.4.2 update but it won't run because it also directs me to the app store.  When the app store tries to update, it says I have to log in to other accounts.  There are no other accounts, this is a fresh install of ML.  There seems to be no way around this.

    I got the same message and thought that I had only one Apple App Store account.  I was wrong.  At one time I accessed the account from our laptop or my iPhone and had used a difference acct ID there. Luckily I had a list of account/password info in a encoded file that I keep up to date very carefully and found the other ID there.

     

    Good luck.

    Had you bothered to mentioned that this was a new system and  how you migrated to it the answer would have been very simple -

    Migration assistance does not handle the iPhoto library well sometimes - the best way is to drag the bad iphoto library from the pictures folder on the new system to the desktop, connect the two systems together (network, firewire target mode, etc) and drag the iPhoto library intact as a single entity from the old system to the pictures folder of the new system and launch iPhoto on the new system - it will open and convert the iPhoto library as necessary and you will be fine - once you test the iPhoto library you can delete the one on the desktop

     

    Remember we can not see your machine and only know what you tell us

    My problem is slightly different. I am getting the same messages (my Mac tells me that updates are available but under another account ...which I don't have). However, I "migrated" to another system when my hard drive failed. I recovered data from a backup onto the new hard drive. No migration assistance. I finally dragged my originals from the "old library" to iPhoto 11. While that worked, I am still stuck with a non-upgradeable iPhoto 11 version.

    Any suggestions?
