    It's on Software Update and the words iPhoto 9.1 on Old Toad's post above are a link too.

    Later-I found the update thanks. As it says it is an update to iPhoto 11 I wondered why I hadn't already had this software update automatically?
    However, I downloaded but it would not load into one of the 3 options that appeared as options-as it says I need to have iPhoto 11 before an upgrade can be installed!! Seems to be an impasse? Help!
  • Terence Devlin Level 10 (137,883 points)
    iPhoto 11 is a marketing Name and the actual version of Photo is v9.

    Have you moved iPhoto from the default install location? Into a sub-folder for instance?

    Pooched mine as well after the iLife 11 upgrade, did the software update will null results, still can't open it or even find the .app

    Called Apple Support - closed.

    What the heck has happened to Apple's QA?! Used to be the best in the business now I don't think there has been a product or app released without issues....

    Hi Terence Devlin
    Not knowingly moved to a sub folder. If version 11 is a marketing name I must have had 9.1 via my automatic upgrade. I'm not allowed to install it as pop as it says I must have version 9 (market name 11) installed, which I have. The green tick saying 11 successfully installed has told me that. Only the iPhoto section is a problem.

    I am having a complete nightmare with iphoto '11. Every time I try to launch it just says"the library is not compatible with iPhoto" and the only option that I have is to quit the program.
    I have installed the update and the same problem still exists. I have rebooted, and still no joy!!
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Further to my earlier posts I one again installed ILife 11. After the usual 30 mins the message came that install successful. Again the suggestion I load 9.1. I looked at Software update and lo and behold there was 9.1 available this time. Downloaded that and hey presto all working. Everything crossed now,

    Thanks to all for help and I hope everyone's problem solved.

    Ok, so I downgraded to the iPhoto '11 (v9.0.1) install would not open and said you needed to upgrade. SO I downloaded iPhoto Update v9.1 and bounces and will not open. Now I still have NO access to my photos.

    HELP.

    WHY APPLE DOESN'T SOLVE THIS ISSUE BECAUSE MANY HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE NEW VERSION AND MEE TOO. THE SCREEN IS FREEZING MAY TIMES AND I CAN'T DO ANYTHING THEN WAIT. 3 MIN. 5 MIN. ......

    Why do you feel the need to use all caps here? That's tantamount to shouting and we're not deaf. We're only users like yourself. If you want to rant at Apple use this page: http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphoto.html.

    BINGO - Found it: "It's easier than you'd think . Open Finder go to your HD then Library then Quicktime then delete the DiVX files ." that did it for me. I had two: DivX 5.component & DivX 6 Decoder.component. Didn't even have to repair permissions, but I will.
  • mrdykes Level 1 (0 points)
    Crazy man. So after trying all the suggested fixes across the net, i.e. command line, permissions, and completely uninstalling a reinstalling iphoto... this worked. I trashed DivX 5.component, DivX 6 Decoder.component, DivX Decoder.component, DivX Pro 5.component and sure enough it opens right up no problem.
    Two questions though. Why? and how will this effect quicktime?
    Thanks for the fix.
  • mediastarproductions Level 1 (0 points)
    NO clue, how Divx effect QuickTime.
