    Sethertonb - it's located in your users folder. Easiest way is from the finder, go to the go menu, hold down option. Library should appear. Select libray, preferences, com.apple.Aperture.plist

    I had enabled Facebook and Flickr in Aperture previously, so based on the above posts, I deleted the new Facebook and Flickr accounts that I'd set up in "Mail, Contacts & Calendars" pref pane, and Aperture is still crashing.

    AHA! Thanks Daniel Scott1

     

    It's a pain to lose all my preferences, but at least I can get Aperture open now.

    After applying update to 3.4, Aperture crashed upon opening. I'd already updated to Mountain Lion 10.8.2. There was no update via Software Update, so I went to Apple's website to download the update. After a few attempts at trying to open Aperture 3.4, I threw away its preferences, which allowed me to reopen Aperture successfully. I was able to see my photo library, and went to set up Preferences. But it crashed on me when I was in Aperture Preferences trying to setup my Facebook and Flickr connections. (Both were not appearing in my list on the left of main Aperture window after this update.) While in Preferences trying to set up Facebook and Flickr connections Aperture 3.4 has consistently crashed on me.

     

    Aperture 3.3.x was working for me beautifully with no problems at all with Facebook or Flickr connections.

    Try deleting the com.apple.Aperture.plist in your Library folder. It worked for me.

     

    Thanks, now it works

    It does look like getting rid of your preferences is only a fix if you plan on not using facebook or flickr again. What finally fixed it for me was re-installing the app.

     

    I would re-install.

    If you look at the crashlog on the previous page, than you can see that the AccountConfigurationPlugin is crashing, when it is creating the URL to access Facebook. Until this gets fixed, I'd suggest to export your Facebook sets to the desktop and then upload from there to Facebook.

    There is also better way to fix this bug. Instead of deleting whole file (You will loose all settings), You can edit with favourite text editor file com.apple.Aperture.plist and replace settings regarding to facebook with photostream.

     

    Find that section: 

         <key>AccountConfigurations</key>

     

    Than this:

         <key>IPHAccountTypeKey</key>

    Below this there will be  <string>IPHPublishServiceFacebook</string>. Replace this facebook line with:

         <string>IPHPublishServiceSharedPhotoStream</string>

     

    Now, everything except facebook will work without problems. And don't reenable facebook in Aperture - it will crash again!

    Anyway, thanks Daniel for pointing me to find source of problem

     

    Apple - it's a shame on this bug

    I think the update has been pulled from the App store, can anyone confirm this?

     

    EDIT: Well it appears to be back again!!
