So, I just purchased Aperture from the App Store, and it won't launch.

 

I tried the advice here:

 

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4412

 

To no avail. Since the app hasn't launched, there is no preference file to delete.

 

The only other variables, of course, would be my hardware and OS, but all of that is up to date.

 

I kind of need the app running... Any idea what's happening?

 

Cheers,

T

Do you have Final Cut installed? The crash dump has all the signs of the classic Final Cut /Aperture conflict.

 

If so the easiest way to fix the situation is to just install the operating system Mountain Lion again. Re-installing the OS will not damage your data files however is it always a good idea to have a full backup in cases lie this.

    Yes, Final Cut Express. What is the conflict? I didn't see any mention of such a conflict in searches, and I never had the issue before. I don't really fancy reinstalling the OS again, as I have been trying to keep it clean as possible, and it was only installed a week ago.

    OK.

     

    I restored the /Frameworks/PluginManager.framework folder from Time Machine, and now it works. There is no need to reinstall Mountain Lion at all.

     

    Apple, this is inexcusable and shameful!

    Glad you got it fixed. Reinstalling the OS is really not that big a deal and for most users it is the easiest way to go. But getting the framework off a backup works also.

    Many thanks for the tip. I also restored the PluginManager.framework and Aperture 3.4.3 began running again. I'm glad because I'm running Lion and didn't have to upgrade.
