HT3805: Aperture 3: Troubleshooting Basics

Learn about Aperture 3: Troubleshooting Basics

HT3805 I need to reinstall Aperture 3 but the DVD says "Upgrade from Aperture 1.0 or later."  If I trash my current copy as instructed, will the DVD Upgrade work (since it has nothing to upgrade?)  Will my Aperture Library be affected?

Aperture apparently got corrupted when I uploaded a video to Facebook.  After that, everytime I try to make an adjustment to any image in the project, the app crashes or the image goes black.  I restored my Aperture Library from a Time Machine backup taken before the video was downloaded, but the problem still persists.  I want to reinstall Aperture but the DVD I have says it's an upgrade from Aperture 1 and if I drag Aperture to the trash (as per the instructions), there's nothing to upgrade, so will it still work as long as I have the serial number?  Also, will my Aperture Library be affected by the reinstall?


(I'm running Aperture 3.2.4 on a MacPro OSX 10.6.8)


Thanks for any advice.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
