No response, nothing happens to the selected photo. . Other menu items work but not this one. I ant get to the export dialog box to select the type of file.
It is as if the menu item is grayed out.

Go to Applications and find the iPhoto app there. Right Click on it and select the 'Show Package Contents' option. Inside the Contents folder you'll find a Plug-ins folder. Don't delete anything, instead, make a list and post them here and I'll compare them with mine.

That's the list. Thanks for anything you can suggest.

Oddly, you seem to be missing one: I also have one called
Is that really missing? Or just left off the list. Assuming it is missing... I'd reinstall the app:
To re-install iPhoto
1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)
2. Download it from the App Store to reinstall It's on your Purchases List* there.
For older versions that have been installed from Disk you'll need these additional steps:
2a: On 10.5: Go to HD/Library/Receipts and remove any pkg file there with iPhoto in the name.
2b: On 10.6: Those receipts may be found as follows: In the Finder use the Go menu and select Go To Folder. In the resulting window type
2c: on 10.7 or later they're at
A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.
If you purchased an iLife Disk, then iPhoto is on it.
If iPhoto was installed on your Mac when you go it then it’s on the System Restore disks that came with your Mac. Insert the first one and opt to ‘Install Bundled Applications Only.
*Sometimes iPhoto is not visible on the Purchases List. it may be hidden. See this article for details on how to unhide it.
One question often asked: Will I lose my Photos if I reinstall?
iPhoto the application and the iPhoto Library are two different parts of the iPhoto programme. So, reinstalling the app should not affect the Library. BUT you should always have a back up before doing this kind of work. Always.

I reinstalled Iphoto
The package contents now has Fileexporter2.iphotoexplorer . But the export feature still does not work. It is not greyed out but does absolutely nothing when selected.
Any other ideas?

I just repaired permissions. Did not work.
It is not a big deal, since i can drag to the desktop. But there should be a way to fix this.
Thanks for any other suggestions.

Boot into Safe Mode, Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode, and try exporting from there. If you can then there's something enabled in the system during regular launch that is the culprit.
