I recently upgraded to iphoto11 and now cannot open my iphoto.  I get a messageto first prepare iphoto with library upgrader.  downloaded upgrader, but nothing changes.  I don't know what to do

I recently successfully upgraded my mid-2007 mac desktop to OS X 10.9        I tried to purchase a print from my iphoto and it told me that I could not do this unless I upgraded to Iphoto version 9.5 which I then did.  When I attempted to open my iphoto library following the upgrade, I got the message "To open library with this version of Iphoto, it firsts needs to prepare"   I was then prompted to use the Iphoto library upgrader.  I downloaded the upgrader as it suggested.  However, nothing different happens.  I still get the same prompt each time I attempt to open the iphoto (telling me the I need to prepare with the library upgrader.)  I have no idea what to do next.  I am not finding any help in my online searches.  Can  someone please offer suggestions?  Keep in mind that I am not a computer expert, so simple terms/instructions would be most helpful.  Thank you!

Yes, I purchased the upgrade through the apple website, downloaded successfully.  When I clicked on the iphoto icon, that's when I got the prompt that said I needed to prepare my library using the library upgrader.  I got this from apple website as well.  It downloaded, then appeared on my desktop screen as a 'library upgrader'    I don't know what to do next?  When I click it, it just keeps repeating the download process.

  • I have CS2. I shot RAW files with my Nikon D90 and now cannot open them in PS.  I heard there was a plug-in to download for this, but cannot find it. Help?

    I have CS2. I shot RAW files with my Nikon D90 and now cannot open them in PS.  I heard there was a plug-in to download for this, but cannot find it. Help?

    You would need at least CS3 with ACR 4.6 to natively edit NEFs from a D90 in PS:

    It might also work to use the DNG Converter 4.6 or newer to convert the NEF files to DNGs and then those might open in your older CS2 ACR, but I’m not sure, since it’s a 9 year old program I haven’t used in years.
    The DNG Converter can be found, here:

  • I recently updated to the OSX 10.8.3 Operating Sistem.  I am writing a book and now cannot open any word document I've created.  Could not find a newer version of the Microsoft Word Processing Program.  Is Pages the next thing? Can I recover my documents?

    I recently updated to the OSX 10.8.3 Operating Sistem.  I am writing a book and now cannot open any word document I've created with the old system.  Could not find a newer version of the Microsoft Word Processing Program.  Is Pages the next thing? Can I recover my documents?  How?

    I'm in the same boat: new to OS X and Mac, and in the middle of a book. I switched because I heard about the the ease of using Mac, but so far, for me, it's been a nightmare. I bought 2011 Office Mac and hate everything about it, the most recent being the inability to open or cut or paste any of my original word files. I understand that this could have easily been done with earlier versions, but not Mountain Lion (which I learned is what OSX is.) Since I work with language, I am amazed at the assumptions of the Apple community. It helps to use common language and explain even the basics.  
    So all the helpful hints to use the latest version of Office Mac are to no avail. Now what?

  • IPad 16GB iOS 8.1.1 upgrade and now cannot open Music and Videos apps

    My iPad 16GB installediOS 8.1.1 upgrade and now cannot open Music and Videos apps...HELP?

    Since yesterday morning about 11:00 I have been having TERRIBLE email problems on this iPad 3G. Email comes in (I hear the sound) but nothing displays -- no folders, no content, no nothing in e-mail. The blank email screen shows up and then disappears after about 10 seconds, taking me back to the Home Screen.
    Right now, the only way I can see email on this device is to log onto AOL via the AOL app.
    I have been doing a lot of online reading about the problem. It has to do with iOS 8.1.3 and it affects older iPads and iPhones. I'm having no problems on my iPod touch, which -- fortunately -- is so old it cannot update its iOS 6.
    I waited to update the iOS on this iPad until iOS 8 was "mature." That was about 2 weeks ago.
    Anybody know know if Apple is aware? working on a solution?

  • I downloaded Lion onto my Mac, and now cannot open or access any of my Microsoft word documents or Power Points. Is there a fix for this? I need my documents

    I downloaded Lion onto my Mac, and now cannot open or access any of my Microsoft word documents or Power Points. Is there a fix for this? I need my documents

    If it's because you were using Office 2004, the eight year old version of Office that was written when Intel processors were not used in Macs, then there will be no fix. Lion dropped support for PowerPC applications, as has been widely reported since Lion's release last August.
    You can upgrade Office 2004 to Office 2008 or Office 2011. You can use iWorks 2009 that can open Microsoft files. You can use a number of free applications that are also capable of working with Microsoft documents. You can go back to Snow Leopard, if you have a backup. Or, if you have an external drive or room to add a partition to your current drive, you can install Snow Leopard on it.
    Search these forums for more information. If this is your issue, it's been posted and answered several times a day since August 2011.

    Help, I installed parallel and windows, and opened videos (on an external hard disk) with windows, and now cannot open them with Mac, and use i movies.  How do I reverse this?

    Paragraphs help the reader, just saying.
    What are you actually trying to do? Why do you need "DVD size" folders if you're creatng an Archive on an external hard drive?
    Also, I understand burning folders instead of individual photos or albums gives you more space on a DVD.
    It makes no difference at all.
    How can I keep the captions on my photos (not events) when I print or transfer to a new folder?
    You can export while writing the metadata to the file in most cases.
    Tne only way I know is to copy photos from the Windows to folders on my HD, then copy and paste photos or albums or events to HD, then create a new folder and fill it to the appropriate DVD size. 
    HD? Another HD? You use HD there in a way that makes no sense. What's the point of 'DVD size'?
    I also thought I should download future photos to my Canon programming that comes with EOS cameras and edit and then decide which photos to save to iPhoto library and which to save only to my archival HD?
    Does this have any relation to the previous questions? You know you can delete from iPhoto, right?
    You're somewhat confused and you need to
    1. Decide what exactly you want to do
    2. Then go about it.
    If I understand you correctly - and there's no guarantee that I do -  the easiest thing is to bring all your Photos into iPhoto and do everything from there.
    You can have an archive on an external disk, you can sort and select and edit with or via iPhoto

  • I downloaded the update Adobe Reader IX and now cannot open PDF attachments on incoming emails. Why?

    I downloaded the update Adobe Reader IX and now cannot open incoming PDF attachments  It says "EULA display has stopped working"

    Go to: C/Program Files (or Program Files(x86))/Adobe/Reader 11.0/Reader
    Look for the file named "eula.exe" (or just "eula")
    Double click it and accept the end user license agreement (eula)
    You should not see this error anymore

  • When syncing with itunes, got error message saying had error and now ipad2 will not do anything other than showing the USB cable with arrow pointing to Itunes on screen.  have done the reset and restart, but still get same thing.

    when syncing with itunes, got error message saying had error and now ipad2 will not do anything other than showing the USB cable with arrow pointing to Itunes on screen.  have done the reset and restart, but still get same thing.  Ipad does not show up in itunes even though cable plugged in.  Have shut down and restarted Windows 7 computer.

    I had done all of that to no avail.  I did call Apple Tech Support and after he suggested I try a USB port in the rear of the Win 7 computer, things starting working again.  I had tried switching the USB port at the front of the machine but that had not helped.  Everything is good to go again.  thanks for  your reply

    lots of people seem to be havgin a problem sending email from iCloud webmail.
    does your email address have uppercase characters in it?
    if so, try creating an alias in lowercase (go to preferences in iCloud webmail and select 'accounts') and see if email sends okay from that

  • UPDATED iTunes and now cannot open it

    I recently updated my iPhone to ios6 and then upgraded my iTunes on my laptop.  Unfortunately, I now cannot open ITunes on my laptop.  What gives?

  • I have "hidden" my devices/USB access and now cannot figure out how to get them back on so I can re-access the USB files.  How do I do this?  (Is it just me, or should this be a reasonably simple task that shoul NOT require a post to the Apple community?)

    Under "Devices," I have "hidden" my USB access and now cannot figure out how to re-access or "show" USB access again.  Very frustrated right now--this is a high-use feature for me and it should NOT be so buried somewhere that I cannot find it.  So much for Mac's "intuitive" interface.

    Well, you have also "hidden" what version of OS X you are using from anyone who might want to help you.
    You are probably using a newer version than I am, but I don't know that these things have changed.
    In the Finder, from the Finder menu > Preferences …, there should be a Sidebar pane to choose what is visible.
    Also in the Finder, Go menu > Computer (or type Shift Command C) will open a Finder window with any attached volumes showing.

  • My itunes library is constantly resetting itself. I really don't know what is wrong with it I have ran virus checks and nothing is on my laptop. Anybody got any idea?

    Hi my itunes library is constantly disappearing, I really don't know what is wrong. It keep happening everytime I turn my laptop off, I thought I had solved the problem the other week however it has started back up again. I have a Sony Vaio laptop and have read on the discussions that this can occur but all the solutions I have read haven't seemed to solve it. Anybody else got an idea? I would be really grateful for the help!

    See this post. Seems that AVG is the most likely cause. They are promising a patch tomorrow.

  • Upgraded and now cannot open iPhotos

    I just updated to Maverick, but now iPhotos 9.2.3 won't open. Did I just loose all my photos? If I upgrade my iPhotos, will I be able to get them back?

    Hello K29292,
    Thank you for the question, and I definitely understand your concern.  The iPhoto application and your iPhoto Library are stored in two different locations, so even if you cannot open iPhoto, your photos are still in their original location. 
    The version of iPhoto you are currently running is not compatible with Mavericks, but you can upgrade iPhoto to the latest version to access your photos.  Follow the steps in the article below to upgrade the iPhoto application:
    iPhoto '11: Update your iPhoto software
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2509
    Once you update iPhoto, you should be able to access your iPhoto Library, but it is always a good idea to have a backup of your photos:
    iPhoto '11: Back up your iPhoto library
    http://support.apple.com/kb/PH2504
    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,
