During Aperture 3.3 upgrade process, system hangs up at Step 6 and shuts Aperture down.  Any suggestions as to how to proceed?

Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Is there a crash log? Or anything posted in the Console?

    I'm using a 2008 late macbook (Lion) experiencing the same issue. The upgrade for iPhoto was succesful, but Aperture keeps crashing when it comes to step 6.

    The crash seems to occur, when Aperture is doing raw processing. Do you shoot raw?

     

    It may be that your library is corrupted, has a permission problem, or contains a corrupted image. I'd try the Aperture 3 Library First aid tools. Hold down the command and options-key combination (⌘⌥) while you launch Aperture, and try if the "Repair Permissions" and "Repair Database" tools work on your Library.

    ted_s Does doing a Repair on the library first, before proceeding to the upgrade, make any difference on your success?

    "Repair Permissions" didn't help, but "Repair Database" worked like a charm!!

    Thank you so much leonieDF. You saved all my RAWs!
