Looks like there's an issue with attempting to install the latest RAW update on the recently-announced Macs.
You'll need to edit your /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist file to be able to install it, then change it back after the install is done. If you're comfortable with the Terminal you can use pico/vi/emacs to change the ProductBuildVersion from 12C2034 to 12C1999, do the install, then change it back.
If you're not comfortable with the Terminal, then navigate through your "System" folder on your hard drive to find the "SystemVersion.plist" file, copy it to your desktop, then make another copy of it (for backup purposes). Open it in TextEdit to change the ProductBuildVersion from 12C2034 to 12C1999. Copy the edited version back to the CoreServices folder, and you should be able to install the RAW updater.
After the install is finished, change the version number back by renaming the backup copy you made back to its original name and copy that back into the CoreServices folder.
Sometimes reregistering the "Core types bundle" with the OS has helped. You need the Terminal to do this:
- Quit Aperture, if it is running.
- Launch a Terminal (from the Launchpad, or from the Applications > Utilities folder, or typing "Terminal" into the Spotlight search field)
- Then enter:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchSe rvices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -R /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Library
All in one line and without spaces - the only spaces go directly before and after "-R" (the server inserts random blanks into long lines when downloading a post - remove them). Hit return.
Then reboot and try again, if Aperture recognizes the raw format now.
You are kind to try to help. I did what you suggested and it is still not working. Would there be anything with this 13" Pro Retina from a hardware perspecive that could be an issue. Anything to do with the graphics? I am at a loss to know what to do at this point. I suppose I will call Apple tomorrow and see if there is anyone there who can help.
Micheal, I have no idea. If Apple can find a solution, please post it here.
On your rMBP, what is your MacOS X version? Have you upgraded to Max OS X 10.8.2 or is the system there still Max OS X 10.8.1? Afaik, the update for the late 2012 rMBPs has not yet been released. Maybe you need to wait a little, until you can update the MacOS X version.
