How to update from pre App Store versions of iPhoto to iPhoto 9.6.1

After updating to Yosemite 10.3.3 from Mavericks my old iPhoto '08 v7.1.5(378) copy of iPhoto is grayed out with the circle/bar through it. I can use Old Toads package contents workaround to run it; but would like to not have to use that workaround each time by updating it to 9.6.1
All the posts I've found about updating to 9.6.1 use the App Store purchases list; but since that/my version of iPhoto was not purchased using the App Store, and iPhoto is not listed or hidden in my App Store Purchases list, those methods won't work for me.
Is there anyway to upgrade from my iPhoto '08 v7.1.5(378) to iPhoto 9.6.1?  Or from iPhoto9.4 which is still available from Support/Downloads?

Thanks léonie and Old Toad; although not the answer I was hoping for, it does save me from looking further. Disappointed that upgrading to Yosemite has (except for the inconvenient workaround) essentially killed iPhoto for me, especially since Photos does not yet have the sorting functions I need to move to it.

  • How do I remove unwanted updates from the App Store?

    How do I remove unwanted updates from the App Store? So you understand better what I'm referring to:
    I have the App Store icon in the Dock. When there's an update a red number appears on said icon. Well, I went to check on the updates and it's for 4 different applications I either no longer have or use. One of them is an update for Lion OS users. I'm still on Snow Leopard, so it doesn't even apply to me.
    So there they sit... I'm not going to download the updates... so how do I get rid of them?

    Hi Andy ..
    no longer have or use
    If there are updates available for apps you have deleted, try this.
    Go to ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.appstore
    Move the Cache.db and Updates files from the com.apple.appstore folder to the Trash.
    Empty the Trash, restart your Mac.
    For any apps you still have installed but do not use, the updates will still be available from the Updates top of the App Store window and show on the red badge on the App Store icon in the Dock.

  • HT1365 How can I get my iPhone 4 to update my updates from my app store of it keeps telling me error 3150 or it tell me to refresh the page after updates and the updates are still there asking me to update them again

    How can I get my iPhone 4 to update my updates from my app store of it keeps telling me error 3150 or it tell me to refresh the page after updates and the updates are still there asking me to update them again?

    Make sure iTunes on the computer is logged into the account on the phone.
    Plug the iPhone in.
    In the popup window warning about wiping your phone, hit cancel.
    In the left pane of iTunes, the phone icon should be there.
    Right click on it, select transfer purchases.
    Note: this will only transfer music bought from iTunes. Not mp3's from amazon or ripped from CD's.

  • How do you clear completed updates from the app store after downloading is complete?

    How do you clear completed updates from the app store after downloading is complete on iOS 7.0.2?

    You don't. It's how things are done now, likely to accommodate those that have auto update turned on.  IT's been said that the updates will just drop off after a period of time but  time will tell on that.

  • How can I hide or delete updates from the App Store I am not interested in using?

    How can I hide or delete updates from the App Store I am not interested in using?

    This works for apps you've acquired, but does not work for built-in features.  I am regularly nagged to update Digital Camera RAW Compatibility (currently I'm being nagged about Update 6.03).  I've tried the method described above - the steps are available, but they appear to have no effect.  I think this is perhaps because RAW compatibility is an element of OSX rather than a separate app.  I don't use RAW format with cameras, and have no need for this feature.  Even if I did, I have none of the 13 camera models listed in this update. 
    It is just a nuisance, but if anyone knows how to suppress this I would appreciate instructions. 
    I would also be curious if anyone can explain why on earth Apple would incorporate RAW camera format compatibility into the core of its operating system.  It shakes my confidence in their operating system design.

  • IPhoto 9.2.1 update from Mac App Store will not update from 9.1.5

    I downloaded the iPhoto 9.2.1 update from Mac App Store.
    When I try to update from 9.1.5 to 9.2.1, I get the message: "The version of iPhoto installed on this Mac must be updated through the Mac App Store."
    Since the Mac App Store is where I downloaded the update from, I don't know how exactly to proceed.
    Any suggestions?

    Terence and Peter,
    I have iPhoto 9.1.5 which was installed on my iMac that I received November, 2011.
    My wife has the 9.2.1 version of iPhoto on her MacBook Pro which she bought months before I bought my iMac.
    My iPhoto library opens fine in 9.1.5 on my iMac but will not open the copy of her iPhoto library that I copied to my iMac. We have two libraries and I want the same one she has instead of two separate libraries.
    I went to the Mac App Store and downloaded iPhoto9.2.1 Update.dmg to my desktop.
    I then opened the .dmg and clicked on the iPhoto9.2.1Update.pkg.
    The install iPhoto Update window started to open briefly before the Alert message "The version of iPhoto installed on this Mac must be updated through the Mac App Store. Check the Mac App Store to see if an update is available" appeared.
    I checked the MAS and found this link and this is what I downloaded: http://support.apple.com/downloads#iPhoto%209.2.1

  • Download updates from the app store

    I've bought my brother's old (2009) imac and am trying to update from the app store. Although I'm logged in via my account in the app store sign-in dialogue box has his account name greyed out. The only option I have is to enter his password or cancel. How do I remove his name and replace it with mine? Thanks.

    The first thing you should do with a second-hand computer is to erase the internal drive and install a clean copy of OS X. How you do that depends on the model. Look it up on this page to see what version was originally installed.
    If the machine shipped with OS X 10.4 or 10.5, you need a boxed and shrink-wrapped retail Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) installation disc, which you can get from the Apple Store or a reputable reseller — not from eBay or anything of the kind. If the machine has less than 1 GB of memory, you'll need to add more in order to install 10.6. I suggest you install as much memory as it can take, according to the technical specifications.
    If the machine shipped with OS X 10.6, you need the installation media that came with it: gray installation discs, or a USB flash drive for some MacBook Air models. If you don't have the media, order replacements from Apple. A retail disc, or the gray discs from another model, will not work.
    To boot from an optical disc or a flash drive, insert it, then reboot and hold down the C key at the startup chime. Release the key when you see the gray Apple logo on the screen.
    If the machine shipped with OS X 10.7 or later, you don't need media. It should boot into Internet Recovery mode when you hold down the key combination option-command-R at the startup chime. Release the keys when you see a spinning globe.
    Once booted from the disc or in Internet Recovery, launch Disk Utility and select the icon of the internal drive — not any of the volume icons nested beneath it. In the Partition tab, select the default options: a GUID partition table with one data volume in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format. This operation will permanently remove all existing data on the drive, which is what you should do.
    After partitioning, quit Disk Utility and run the OS X Installer. When the installation is done, the system will automatically reboot into the Setup Assistant, which will prompt you to transfer the data from another Mac, its backups, or from a Windows computer. If you have any data to transfer, this is usually the best time to do it.
    You should then run Software Update and install all available system updates from Apple. If you want to upgrade to a major version of OS X newer than 10.6, buy it from the Mac App Store. Note that you can't keep an upgraded version that was installed by the previous owner. He or she can't legally transfer it to you, and without the Apple ID you won't be able to update it in Software Update or reinstall, if that becomes necessary. The same goes for any App Store products that the previous owner installed — you have to repurchase them.
    If the previous owner "accepted" the bundled iLife applications (iPhoto, iMovie, and Garage Band) in the App Store so that he or she could update them, then they're linked to that Apple ID and you won't be able to download them without buying them. Reportedly, Apple customer service has sometimes issued redemption codes for these apps to second owners who asked.
    If the previous owner didn't deauthorize the computer in the iTunes Store under his Apple ID, you wont be able toauthorize it under your ID. In that case, contact iTunes Support.

  • When I try to update from the app store I get error C08229p

    Triple-click the word "telnet" in the line below on this page to select the whole line:
    telnet swscan.apple.com 443
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    Launch the built-in Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Paste into the Terminal window by pressing command-V. I've tested these instructions only with the Safari web browser. If you use another browser, you may have to press the return key after pasting.
    You should almost instantly get three lines of output below what you entered, the last of which is this:
    Escape character is '^]'.
    If there's no output within ten seconds, consider that a failure. Otherwise, please post the output in a reply. You can then quit Terminal.

  • Why do I have two icons for iMovie '11 after downloading the update from the App Store?  Previously I had iMovie '09.

    Why do I have two icons for iMovie '11 after downloading the update from the App Store?  Previously I had iMovie '09.

    Do you see two versions of iMovie in your Application folder?
    You can drag the icons out of the dock and then drag what you want back to the dock from the Application folder.

  • I keep gettin updates from my app store but yet when I go in and update all it starts the update and then pops up and tells me that the application cannot be downloaded at this time. I have had to delete a few apps bc this isn't working.

    I keep getting updates from my app store but yet when I go in and update it starts the process but then a message pops up that says the download cannot be done at this time. I have had to delete a few apps because of this. I have also signed out and signed back into my account and turned my phone on and off and still does the same thing. Help!

    Hi tmcrae
    First check that your device is not full, maybe you may have to delete some photos or apps to make space to do updates. if its not full then you will have to try pluging it into your pc/mac running itunes then doing a backup and restore. Then you should be able to do your updates.
    Sorry but i cant think of any other way if its showing as installed already but is not there.
    Hope that helps

    I am not sure what you mean by "Flash Player for steam"; the only Flash Player installers I know is the ActiveX (for Internet Explorer) and the plugin (for other browsers); you can find both at http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player- windows.html#main-pars_header

  • I have recently update my Final Cut Pro X to Final Cut Pro X 10.1. I downloaded the update from the app store. Now every time I open Final Cut it crashes almost instantly. What can I do

    I have recently update my Final Cut Pro X to Final Cut Pro X 10.1. I downloaded the update from the app store. Now every time I open Final Cut it crashes almost instantly. What can I do?- I really need help!

    It sounds as though you have a corrupt project - or possibly a file within an event that is causing the application to crash.
    Quit FCP X, then move your projects and events (if you have any) to new folders so that FCP X doesn't find them, then relaunch the application. If it launches OK, there's a very good chance one of your projects or events is causing the problem.
    Quit the app again, then move one event or project at a time back to the original folder and launch FCP X again - keep going until you find the cause.

  • Getting error NSURLErrorDomain error -1100 when trying to get updates from the App Store.  Are updates still available for OS below Maverick?

    Started getting this error today (01/14/2014) when trying to download updates from the App Store for my MBAir 11" mid 2013.  Error:  NSURLErrorDomain error -1100
    Are updates still available for OS below Maverick?

    That error may result from connecting to a cellular network via a phone or mobile broadband device. If that's what you're doing, try another network.
