Hi!

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?

    Actually, I cant open any of the programs on my computer that are connected to App Store. I get the same error message while opening Spotify, iMovie and such.

     

    The message says:

     

    "iPhoto cannot be opened because of a problem. Contact the surver to make sure that this program is possible to use with this version of Mac OS X. It is possible that you have to install the program again. Make sure that you have installed all the avalible upgrades for the program and for Mac OS X."

     

    I had to translate it into english, so the spellings and the language is probably not right, but I hope you understand.

     

    My computer is a 10.7.5 version, and I tried to install Iphoto 11´ because iPhoto did not want to open before I did. That is when the problems started...

    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

    Okey, thank you!

    But if I re-install iPhoto, what about my pictures? Will they be deleted during the process?

     

    I will keep that in mind next time!

    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
