Hi there,

 

I had been working with the version of iPhoto that was originally installed on my late 2008 MacBook for quite some time before I decided to upgrade this week. I've installed the newest version from the app store, but now when I click on iPhoto it tells me it can't run "due to an incompatible version of ProKit".

 

I've looked at some other threads, which contained advice to update ProKit and/or the OS. Apart from iPhoto, I have religiously updated every piece of software on my machine since I first bought it. The OS is the latest version and I can't upgrade ProKit because apparently the one I have is the newer version of that too.

 

I'm really annoyed that I paid 10 pounds to try to improve my photo browser and ended up destroying it.

 

Does anybody know what's wrong and how I can fix it?

 

Thanks in advance.

MacBook (13-inch Aluminum Late 2008), OS X Mountain Lion

    That does not necessarily mean that you have the correct ProKit framework version installed. This kind of error can be caused by installing other applications that replace frameworks in your system library by outdated versions. Did you install something else after upgrading to Mt. Lion?

     

    The ProKit framwork is installed in the System Library, at

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ProKit.framework/

     

    If I look there at the date in the subfolder

    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/ProKit.framework/Versions/Current

    I see the date of the current version as Oct 3, 2012

     

    So, if you have a different version, you should consider to reinstall your MacOS version, to restore the ProKit framework to the correct version.

     

    OS X Mountain Lion Update v10.8.2 (Combo)

     

    Regards
