Hi all

I have 3.4.1, purchased through the App Store. The update process tells me that 3.4.3 is available, but the button on the right already shows it as "Installed". Chcking in the software, it still tells me its v3.4.1. Am I missing something obvious?. Downloading 3.4.3 from the Apple site does not allow the update.pkg to be installed, it just refers me to the App Store again....Help!

    Have you done a Get Info on the app in the Applications folder?


    You may be better served to delete Aperture from your computer, and simply download afresh.

    Which "Update Process" are you talking about? If you purchased Aperture via the Mac App Store, you have to open the Mac App Store and select "Updates" to get the update for Aperture. Software Update (from the Apple Manu) will not do it for you.

    Delete Aperture from your Applications folder and re-download from the MAS.  This won't affect your pictures or library in any way.

    Just in case, you may just want to put the Aperture application in the trash and not delete it. I'm not sure whether pre-loads nowadays are Mac App Store versions or traditional install-from-disc versions, but if you don't know for sure either, I'd keep the app around in the trash so you aren't stuck if you delete it.


    The Mac will treat files in the trash as if they've been deleted, so it shouldn't give you any hassles about reinstalling as it would if you had the app in any other folder on your hard drive.

    Julie, did you ever talk to one of the techs at the store? Did they try any troubleshooting, or did they just have you restore from backup?
