Opening iphoto I get an error message that says "you can't open your current photo library using this version of iphoto.  You have made changes to your photo library using a newer version of iphoto.  Please quit and use the latest version of iphoto.

Opening iphoto I get an error message that says "you can't open your current photo library using this version of iphoto.  You have made changes to your photo library using a newer version of iphoto.  Please quit and use the latest version of iphoto."  I wouldn't have a clue as to how to change to a new version of iphoto even if I wanted to. 

If you don't have a backup you can resort to give this a try:
Starting over from scratch with new library
Start over with a new library and import the Originals (iPhoto 09 and earlier) or the Masters (iPhoto 11) folder from your original library as follows:
1. Open the library package like this.
2. Launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and, when asked, select the option to create a new library.
3. Drag the subfolders of the Originals (iPhoto 09 and earlier) or the Masters (iPhoto 11) folder from the open iPhoto Library package into the open iPhoto window a few at a time.
This will create a new library with the same Events (but not necessarily the same Event names) as the original library but will not keep the metadata, albums, books slideshows and other projects.
Note:  your current library will be left untouched for further attempts at a fix if so desired.

  • When I try to open iPhoto, I get an error message that says it can't open the application because it may be damaged or incomplete.

    When I try to open iPhoto, I get an error message that says it can't open the application because it may be damaged or incomplete.

    Make a temporary, backup copy (if you don't already have a backup copy) of the library and apply the two fixes below in order as needed:
    Fix #1
    Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys held down and rebuild the library.
    Select the options identified in the screenshot. 
    Fix #2
    Using iPhoto Library Manager  to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
    Click on the Add Library button, navigate to your Home/Pictures folder and select your iPhoto Library folder.
    Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the File ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
    In the next  window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
    Click on the Create button.
    Note: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments but not books, calendars or slideshows. The original library will be left untouched for further attempts at fixing the problem or in case the rebuilt library is not satisfactory.
    Happy New Year

    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update

    Bonjour

    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or by right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.

  • When I open iphoto I get an error message that says Your photo library is either in use by another application or has become unreadable,

    when I open iphoto I get an error message that says Your photo library is either in use by another application or has become unreadable, I have tried restarting computer and opening iphoto whilst holding down option and command key, but then I get the following message-Your photo library is damaged or unreadable and cannot be opened. Please restore from a backup.  Please can anyone help?

    Make a back up now. If you have any vaule in Your photos always have a back up.
    Most Simple Back Up
    Drag the iPhoto Library from your Pictures Folder to another Disk. This will make a copy on that disk.
    Slightly more complex:
    Use an app that will do incremental back ups. This is a very good way to work. The first time you run the back up the app will make a complete copy of the Library. Thereafter it will update the back up with the changes you have made. That makes subsequent back ups much faster. Many of these apps also have scheduling capabilities: So set it up and it will do the back up automatically. Examples of such apps: Chronosync or DejaVu . But are many others. Search on MacUpdate
    In Library Manager the Rebuild command is under the File menu. There's also an excellent Help available.

  • When I open lightroom I get an error message that says it needs to quit...???

    When I open Lighroom I immediately get an error message that pops up that says 'Lightroom encountered an error when reading from its preview cache and needs to quit. Lightroom will attempt to fix this problem the next time it launches.' When you click ok the box goes away and windows attempts to fix the problem. Then I get a second error box that days the programme has stopped working and windows will notify me if a solution is available. I have tried restarting and updating the computer. I have checked that I have the most up-to-date Lightroom (version 5.7.1). I don't want to uninstall to redownload the software as I have 'work in progress' that I haven't exported yet.
    Help please!

    Delete the Preview Cache folder. It is in the same folder the catalog is in. Usually in your UserName folder.

  • When I tried to download the new version of firefox I get an error message that says "you computer must be restarted to complete an earlier upgrade" when I restart it says the same thing. I cannot use firefox at all at the moment.

I cannot use firefox at all at the moment. When I try to uninstall in the control panel, the same message pops up.

    If you have problems with updating or with the permissions then easiest is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.
    Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop
    * Firefox 5.0.x: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html
    * Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
    * Install the new version that you have downloaded
    Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the [http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Firefox Profile Folder], so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.

  • When i install or reinstall the new itunes i get an error message that says:

    when i install or reinstall the new itunes i get an error message that says:
    apple application support was no found.
    apple application support is required to run ituneshelper. please uninstall itunes, then install itunes again.
    error 2
    thats all it says ive tried to reinstall uninstall ive done all that and it wont work. i use windows 7
    please help me!!

    Yeah, this is absolutely ********. I have t5he same message, only i just started getting it when my Iphone4 went in to recovery mode.
    I uninstalled itunes, downloaded the lates itunes just now, reinstalled it and got the same message.
    So, i did some more google research, and saw a recommendation that rather than installing itunes, one should unpack it with win zip, or win rar.
    I did this, and even though I just downloaded the apple software today, when i try installing application support, i gwt a message saying A LATER VERSION OF APPLE APPLICATION SUPPORT IS ALREADY INSTALLED.. go figure! Du-uh!
    So, i uninstalled the new itunes, went - control panel-programs- and dis a search for apple application support, found it and deleted it too.
    Resinstalled itunes and again the same message.
    unistalled everything again, tried installing application support first, then itunes, and now I get a message saying ITUNES WAS NOT ISNATLLED CORRECTLY!
    I am so annoyed right now, that if my puter was a person, I would be in Jail!

    For the first time, I'm trying to use adobe premiere elements 10 that came with my pc Windows 8. I created a single project, saved it but cannot open it. My pc shows the file I created but I get an error message that says this type file is not supported or the codex is not installed. As a test, I created another very small project and get the same error message, when I try to open it. Pls give me a simple answer, a refund or a phone

    What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 10 running on? And, what video card/graphics card does that computer use?
    Is this the first time you are using Premiere Elements 10 or have you worked with it before successfully? There is no easy solution until we
    know the details and troubleshoot to determined what caused the problem.
    1. Can you open a new project?
    2. After you saved/closed the problem project, did you move, delete, or rename any of the files/folder that were related to the source media
    for that project?
    3. Please review the Adobe document on troubleshooting damaged projects.
    Troubleshoot damaged projects | Adobe Premiere Elements
    4. What are the steps that you are using to reopen this saved closed project.
    a. File Menu/Open Project/Name of Project
    b. Other
    Please review and consider and then we can decide what next based on your further details and results..
    Thank you.
