Sudden issues with Aperture 2.

Opens application fine, but while loading "thumbnails", it suddenly quits.
Any ideas?

    Not one you're likely to want to hear, upgrade to Aperture 3.


    Aperture 2 has been a problem since Lion and with each new OS release it has gotten worst. It is old and not really suitable for use on the new OS's. 


    In any case make sure you have good working backups of your libraries.

    There are some guidelines fore upgrading from an earlier Aperture version in the Aperture 3.5.1 release notes: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2518

    You may want to have a look at those, when you upgrade:


    Scroll down, far to the bottom of the page to the paragraph
