After upgrading my iPhoto, I got a message saying that there was a problem opening iPhoto. When I click on the icon for iphoto on my dock, it will not open.
In App Store, it says that I have already installed the latest version (iPhoto 11´). I have tried to restart my computer, I have tried to do more upgrades on my computer and all of that, but it does not work. Can anybody please help me?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Details please


    What version of iPhoto do you have installed? What is the error message you get when you launch iPhoto? What happens when you try?

    you can select an application in the application folder and get info to see the version that is installed


    I tried to install Iphoto 11´ because iPhoto did not want to open before I did.

    for the future it is not a good idea to upgrade problem programs unless the upgrade specifically addresses the problems your are having - it usually is better to resolve the problems and then upgrade


    Try deleting the iPhoto application and insalling form the Apop store again

    no - the iPhoto library is not affected by reinstalling or upgrading the application


    and any time you reinstall ro upgrade you must make a backup of the iPhoto library in case of unexpected issues
