Re: update on Aperture reinstall

Ok, I seem to be one of those folks that, according to one of the geniuses, has a partially compromised Library that the old Aperture would tolerate but the new one would not.

After Aperture 4's attempt to "update" my library, it instead totally corrupted my library. The only alternative was to:

1. delete Aperture (again)
2. install my Ap 3.0 from CD
3. find Ap 3.3 update on web and install that

4. reinstall an old Library from Time Machine (5 hrs) and see if it works, If not, go back in time over and over until I find a version of my Library that will work with Ap 3.3

5. break my library into smaller libraries so that if there is a section of my photos that will not work with Ap 3.4, at least it will be isolated
6. Run repair and rebuild on all the individual libraries
7. Back up
8. try to reinstall Ap 3.4 and see if my libraries will be accepted.

If not, I guess I am stuck back with Ap 3.3 or wait until there is a good fix from Apple.

I have now done steps 1 to 7 and will take a "time out" of a few days until I try Ap 3.4 again.

Thank God I have the library working again, whew, even though with the old version of Aperture.

The problem is NOT fixed. After using my new REINSTALLED Aperture 3.4 and external library successfully for 3 times, now today, I have the same problem AGAIN -- Aperture will not load my Library. If I get a personal fix for my situation, I will repost -- this is really aggravating -- the old mantra that the reason to get a Mac was that it "just worked" -- is not the case if one has to keep checking online for work-arounds. aaaagh!
