    When I open iPhoto on my new iMac it tells me that there is an update available and that I should goto Software Update to get it. I go there and it says that my software is up to date. I go back to iPhoto and it still tells me there is an update for 8.1.1 but it also gave me a manual install link. I manually downloaded it and it won't install because it needs iPhoto 8.1 from iLife 09'. I even tried rebooting and repairing hard drive permissions. I am using iPhoto from iLife 09 that came on my brand new Mac.

    What gives?

    I figured out the solution. For anyone that has the problem:

    In the past I had created an iLife folder in my Applications folder and moved the iLife apps into it. Apparently doing that causes a problem with the update. As soon as I moved iPhoto (I also moved the other iLife applications back) into the Applications root folder, the update worked. :rolleyes:
