Currently Being ModeratedAug 3, 2008 8:26 PM (in response to judydoll)How big is your library?
It took about 3 minutes for me, with my 150 GB library. But I have an 8 core machine with very fast disks and 8 GB of RAM.
If it's still running (and saying VACUUM DATABASE or something), let it go.8-Core Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.3)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 4, 2008 4:08 AM (in response to William Lloyd)William and sizzling badger,
Thank you both for your help. I followed William's suggestion and let the consistency check run. It actually never stopped running. This morning it was still running (with the vacuum database message). When I read sizzling badger's suggestion to delete the library, I forced quit the consistency check to try that. On a whim, I chose to try to open the Aperture library first before I deleted it and it opened. I shut it down and opened Aperture from my applications and it opened without a problem. I can only assume that the consistency check had taken care of the permissions problem during the the 14 hours it was running.
Again, thank you both for your suggestions, they resulted in a 'solved problem'.
