Aperture 3.1.1 update solution

The following actually works in terms of allowing an install of the 3.1.1 update for Aperture, where the update is downloaded from Aperture support.

  1. Open the Applications folder.
  2. Drag the Aperture application to the Trash.
  3. Open the Utilities folder within the Applications folder.
  4. Open the Terminal application.
  5. On the command line, type the below command (which is case-sensitive) and then press Return:  (or copy and paste)
    sudo pkgutil --forget com.apple.pkg.Aperture
  6. When prompted, enter your user password and press Return.
  7. Insert your Aperture disc and install Aperture.

Then run the update installer package,

Have yet to find a solution for Aperture crashing on opening…..have done everything possible.

  1. this worked for me:

    open up terminal and type:
    /Applications/Aperture.app/Contents/MacOS/Aperture; exit

    For some reason this works. Opening it through Aperture icon or by clicking on library crashes it..

    I have seen some page where they were getting back some framework errors. This isn’t happening for me.. Good luck!
