The latest version of Pages is v 4.3 why are you using v4.1?

I deleted HardDrive/Users/yourAccount/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iwork.pages.plist, still can't get old Pages to open.
I'm still using 4.1 since I moved to Mavericks from Snow Leopard and realized that I haven't update the old Pages. I will try to update Pages 4.1 to 4.3 (through this http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5534) and Mavericks ASAP. Will keep you posted.

I updated Mavericks and Pages, and I still can't open Pages 4.3. It no longer had plugin error, only normal crash message (Pages quit unexpectedly). I tried opening some documents only to found the same crash message.
Posting the error report and console log from when I first opened Pages:
Error report : http://pastebin.com/V4MPM1LG
Console log from opening Pages to sending error report : http://pastebin.com/25AFGDvG
Do I need to reinstall Pages/iWork to fix this?

You may have to:

Looks like I've got no choice other than complete reinstall of iWork, right?
If only I can "read" those error report and pinpoint the main culprit.
Thanks for your help, PeterBreis0807.

I have recently reinstalled iWork '09 along with 9.3 update (won't open in Mavericks without it) and got Pages working somehow. This can only work when Welcome to Pages window is open. It isn't the perfect fix, since closing said window will make Pages 4.3 quit unexpectedly.
Here is the error report if anyone is interested: http://pastebin.com/T2kwpYWQ
I'm quite satisfied with this fix as I can get back to work in old Pages (though I haven't found the real problem yet). Credits to PeterBreis0807 for the reinstall suggestion.
Yes, it is the latest version.
I still work with the old Pages because of its comprehensive inspector tab (I like to have the menu in one window with icons) and its layout. The new iWork is too clean and simple almost Ms.Office-like for me, just not my cup of tea.

Using Mac OS X 10.9.1(Maverocls) I have both Pages '09 (4.3) and Pages 5 on the Dock and I can use either one. I use the older one, 4.3 because of its formating bar, which is abscent in Pages 5. I think that the programmes who did that hack job on Pages 5 never used Pages as a writing tool; the probable use Office for Mac.
