    in order to open iPhoto, you need to update to the latest version
    Please run software update to install it now

    but when i run software update..it says
    my software is up to date
    anyone experiencing this?

    Wow that sucks. How many others have this issue? I'm holding off for now, wish I could help. Maybe downgrade to 10.6.4

    I had same problem after upgrading to iLife '11. iPhoto did not open stating, "..in order to open iPhoto, you need to update to the latest version". Of course, I thought I did that with the installation disk. But, you have to run "software update" and allow it to update iPhoto...again. It worked.

    My problem was solved

    Yeah, I had the same problem. My iPhoto kept showing me the same "can't open iphoto, make an upgrade" message. My version was iPhoto 9.0 and the Software Upgrade wouldn't find any available upgrade. Of course, it happened right on the day I wanted to show my pics to my family. The only way it worked for me was:

    1. I re-installed iPhoto from original Mac Applications Install Disk. Couldn't skip this step because my installed iPhoto wouldn't even be recognized by the upgrade made on step 2;
    2. Downloaded and run latest available iPhoto version from Apple website, which was version 9.1;
    3. iPhoto launched perfectly and immediately pointed to another available upgrade: version 9.1.1;
    4. Made the new upgrade. iPhoto now works perfectly. Good news: my Library was intact.
