Hi guys,

I've just upgraded to Lion and installed iPhoto (iLife '11) from my installation disk.

After installing, I ran software update, and it installed an update for iLife '11.

However, now when I open iPhoto, I get a dialog telling me to update to latest version if I wan't to open iPhoto. I click on Software update in that dialog, but software update tells me that "Software is up to date".

What can I do now?? Seems like I'm stuck here.. :confused:

Do you get the same behavior with iMovie and Garage Band?

I didn't purchase it in the app store. It came on DVD with my iMac, so I installed it from that.

No, iMovie and Garage Band opens just fine.

I get this when opening iPhoto (in Danish, unfortunately :)):

"In order to open iPhoto, you need to update to the latest version.
Please run Softwareupdate to install it now.
[Softwareupdate] [OK]"

When clicking on Softwareupdate, I get this (after it has searched for updates):

"Software is up to date"

----------

Just found out that my iPhoto is version 9... Odd, since latest is 9.2.1...

So now I've tried downloading 9.1 from Apple's website and then updating to 9.2.1 from the dmg from apple's website. Apparently, software update doesn't find anything.
