    Hi all, hoping i could get some help with my issue as soon as possible as im trying to get an important project finished.

    I went to open Pages this morning and it wouldn't open, it came up with an error that i (hope to) have attached to this thread. I dont know if this is a result of the 10.8.3 update or just a coincidence, but pages was definitely working last night. The problem also occurs with Keynote and numbers.

    I have tried deleting it using appzapper and reinstalling it. and have also tried manually reinstalling the 10.8.3 update with no luck.

    Thanks for any of your time and help.
    Jack

    Download the Combo 10.8.3 manually from Apple's site in the download section and reapply it, this may solve the problem.

    You can see the problem if you read the last 3 sentences in the screenshot you provided here: dyld Error message-image not found, this means the shared library can't be found so the App crashes.

    Check if the frameworks are there like in the below screenshot.

    Edit: Update Pages (Actually All iWork Apps), yours is not the latest, I have 4.0.1, yours is 4.0(In the screenshot you provided)
    Download directly from Apple.

    That's the problem then, reinstall or download the latest iWork Updates, I don't think you'll get updated through Software Update, it did not on mine.

    As above, this error is probably because your copy of iWork is several versions out of date. If updating doesn't work, then you may need to do a full reinstall of iWork and then update. This is the update you want: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1563

    Exactly, the 10.8.3 update broke iWork and therefore he needs to update or reinstall and update.

    Thanks for your replies guys, it has managed to help me open pages and bring me to my icloud documents page.

    But now, whenever i try to open a document from icloud it comes up with the following error message;

    (also when i try to open a document that is stored on my hardrive i double click on it, the pages icon bounces but nothing opens.

    sorry to keep troubling you guys.

    I have also noticed i still don't have an application support folder after the update.

    Delete all of iWork and reinstall, as we've said in the other posts.

    Also, when i try and open one particular document it just have opens and then stays like it, if i then click on the pages icon, it just opens up the window with all my documents. I have attached an image to show this.

    Also, i STILL dont have a iwork folder in application support.

    Just trying to give all the information i can.
