There is a problem with the Aperture installer. In some cases the installation is not complete, if you update on top of a recent version.
For most posters here (there must be 20 and more discussions by now) it helped to reinstall Aperture after removing the Application from the Applications Folder and the reinstalling again.
- If you installed Apperture initially from the boxed retail version, reinstall from the CD/DVD.
- If you installed from the AppStore, download again from the AppStore.
- If you unlocked the Trial or bought online previous to the AppStore, use the saved installer or download the Trial again.
Upgrade immediately after installing the previous version; you cannot open your current library with the previous version.
To remove the preferences:
The Preferences are in your User Library, Preferences folder:
The User Library is hidden by default. You can reveal it from the Finder's "GO" menu:
Finder > Go, then hold down the options ⌥ key, until the Library appears in the drop-down menu, select it and open the Library folder. Then go to the "Preferences" sub folder and remove the file
your Home Folder/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Aperture.plist.
But I'd try to reinstall first - removing the preferences will only be a temporary fix, and the crashing may occur again, if you do not fix the broken Aperture installation.
Hi I used Time machine to restore apperture app and library the day before September 22.
I was able to recover my picture (apperture need to refresh miniature, a long process...)
Then I will wait few days and upgrade again to 3.4, when the update pkg will be corrected by Apple development
(I hope soon)
Thanks to all folks for advices. BR Richard
