In order to open iPhoto, you need to update to latest version

“In order to open iPhoto, you need to update to latest version”

 

 

Despite running software updates, iPhoto ’11 just refuses to open.

Solution:

Manually download the 9.1 update from apple’s website (not the 9.1.1) update. While less than intuitive, the 9.x updates are for iLife 2011.

http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1322/en_US/iPhoto9.1Update.dmg

From there you can update the most current updates (update 9.3) and iphoto will work correctly.

 

Did this work for you? or is iphoto still not working? leave a comment.

    😦 Did not work for me. Well, it updated to 9.1, but when I opened iPhoto, it now says I can’t use this version of the application iPhoto with this version of OS X. I am running Mavericks and cannot upgrade to Yosemite without breaking my computer from the domain. My workplace has even blocked us from upgrading while in the network so we won’t mess our computers up. My problem started with iMovie not updating so reinstalled iLife 11 and iMovie now works, but that broke iPhoto! Will keep looking for a solution.
