I have been on vacation away from internet for a while. When I returned to civilization, my computer wanted to update all of my apps that I hadn't updated in two-ish weeks.  I then decided since everything was updated, I'd upgrade the OS to Lion.

 

Now my iPhoto won't open. I restarted the computer and had it check for software updates but it says everything is updated to the current version.

 

I have  iPhoto v9.1.5 and when I click on the dock icon, this is what the error message says:

Do I have to upgrade to iPhoto 11 to make it compatible with Lion? I don't really want to - I like the iPhoto I have now and am not exactly in a place where I can afford it - but if it has to be done to view photos on my computer I guess I will.

 

Thank you,

Katie

    You have iPhoto 11. Confusing as it may be, but iPhoto v9 is iPhoto 11 (v8 is iPhoto 09, v7 is iPhoto 08 etc)

     

    Your iPhoto is crashing because it's missing a piece of a background framework. SO you need to reinstall:

     

    To re-install iPhoto

     

    1. Put the iPhoto.app in the trash (Drag it from your Applications Folder to the trash)

     

    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

     

    /var/db/receipts/

     

    2c: on 10.7 they're at

     

    /private/var/db/receipts

     

    A Finder Window will open at that location and you can remove the iPhoto pkg files.

     

    3. Re-install.

     

    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.

     

    If you purchased it on the App Store you can find it in your Purchases List.

     

    If that fails then you'll need to reinstall the OS.

     

    Regards

    Aha!

     

    Thanks.  I had the same problem.

     

    Note:  My GarageBand was also not loading because of missing support libraries as well.

     

    Interestingly, when I inserted the iLife DVD and went to "custom" install, it suggested only installing the support libs, iPhoto and Garageband.  Very clever.

    Hello matthek,

     

    I was wondering if you could help me.. can't open iphoto with x lion! I've tried step by step what you've suggested but coudn't find any iphoto pkg files. I'm a rookie and that is the biggest problem I think!! I've got a macbook with the 10.7 version and that is the error that comes up when I open Iphoto:

    Your getting the same "missing library" error I got.

     

    If you can't find the PKG files, then skip ahead to re-installing iPhoto.  After you re-install iPhoto check for software updates before you try and run it.

    I'm so unsure, it isnt responding after I updated to Lion, it's the only app to do this. It wont respond and has been like this for a while. I'm not sure how to reintall, and i dont know if it's needed because it hasnt mentioned that coded message it only has done a coded message for "InvisibleFile" it showed a similar message and now wont open and iphoto wont respond. I need help. and i dont particularly want to reinstall, and i dont know what to delete. So i'm hoping this is a temporary thing that they'll fix with an update.

    In the APP store view your previous purchases (Command-4) and you can re-download them.

     

    If you meant the Apple online Store, log in to your account online and look up previous purchases.

    The new 2011 MacBook Air's do not come with any install USB drive or DVD. I think I can reinstall software from the new internet restore (cmd+R on boot), but I did not see it as an option.  I'll look further and report back.  For some reason iPhoto is getting an error, even though it was a good time machine backup I migrated from.

    Go back to the seller and ask them is the best I can suggest. If you bought directly from Apple you have 90 days free telephone support. Lets us know what they tell you.

    Thanks Terence,

     

    what i've done is to delete Iphoto from the macbook, then re-installed it through the app store and now it works just fine!

     

    Thanks to everyone for the support.
