Currently I have been using Aperture 3 with my MBP. My library is on an external drive. When I bought my iMac, I hooked up my drive to that machine and then opened Aperture and I got a message that popped up saying something like my library was 32bit and the iMac is 64bit and I would have to convert my entire library over to be able to use AP3 on my iMac. Does this sound right. I remember it was something along those lines and I ended up not converting all my files and still use my MBP instead.

    How is your workflow set up? How are you moving the Aperture Library around? What OS X and what Aperture versions?


    After backup to an independent drive (stuff happens...) make sure all apps and the OS are current. Also read this regarding

    How did you install Aperture on the iMac? Post a screen shot of the alert window you are getting when you try to access the library.

    Perhaps my issue lies between the OSX maybe. I am using Leopard on my MBP and my iMac has Snowleopard. Lion was just coming out when I got my machine but wasn't installed on it and frankly I forgot to even install it after the fact. I will try to re-create the error screen and provide a screen shot as well. As for everything else, it's all up to date and I am using the latest version of Aperture 3 as well.
