I first installed Aperture 2.1.1 (dvd) on a Macbook Pro running os x 10.5.8.
I then purchased the dvd to upgrade to Aperture 3 and I recently downloaded the update 3.1.2 (no more updates available for os x 10.5).
I just installed os x 10.6 (sorry for delay) and updated it to 10.6.8, and here is the problem: Aperture doesn't open anymore.
I tried to disinstall Aperture following these steps (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3805):
- Open the Applications folder.
- Drag the Aperture application to the Trash.
- Open the Utilities folder within the Applications folder.
- Open the Terminal application.
- On the command line, type the below command (which is case-sensitive) and then press Return: sudo pkgutil --forget com.apple.pkg.Aperture
- When prompted, enter your user password and press Return.
- Insert your Aperture disc and install Aperture.
- When finished, choose Software Update from the Apple () menu to update your software to the latest version.
For further information on settings or installation, please refer to the Aperture documentation available on your installation discs. "
but, after typing " sudo pkgutil --forget com.apple.pkg.Aperture ", and putting the password, I get the following error:
Unknown error Error Domain=NSCocoaErrorDomain Code=4 UserInfo=0x10025f3d0 "“com.apple.pkg.Aperture.bom” couldn’t be removed.".
Forgot package 'com.apple.pkg.Aperture' on '/'.
Does anyone know what I should do? Can I go on reinstalling Aperture 2 and then upgrade to 3 using the dvd I have or may I have some problems in the future?
Really appreciate any help.
