How did you install iPhoto originally? Did it come preinstalled on your Mac, or did you buy an installation DVD/CD?
And how did you reinstall your iLife and iWorks applications? From the original installation media? Then you will have installed older versions than the last ones you used with your iPhoto library. Try to update iPhoto again to the last version you used with your iPhoto library.

Original install was from CD I purchased (iLife). I believe this upgraded iPhoto which came on the computer four years ago.
In the meantime iPhoto or iLife was upgraded and I purchased that online without CD.
When I re-installed I only had the original version of iLife, something like 9.0.3.
I am certain iLife was updated at some point in 2011 and I bought that but I can't use it because I purchased online and not a hard copy. It is not on my purchases showing in iTunes.
"Try to update iPhoto again to the last version you used" is the problem. I can't. I only get the error message.

If you purchased online from the App Store, you should be able to reinstall from the App Store, not from the iTunes store. The iTunes Store is for Music and IOS apps, not Macintosh applications.
Launch the AppStore and sign in with the Apple ID that you used to buy your iPhoto. Then you should see iPhoto in the "Purchased" tab of the AppStore.

First, many thanks for attempting to help. I did find out this evening that I am able to view all photos in finder. There must be some type of problem between the iPhoto icon and the library.
I'm pleased to know the photos are still on my HD. I hate to sound so ignorant but I cannot find where I upgraded iPhoto (via iLife?) on the Apple App store. I just do not recall where I got the product.
