    I've got a serious problem. I've installed iLife'11 correctly but when I'm trying to open iPhoto I get a message to update it until the final version. But there's no new versions in the Software Update.
    Anyone knows what is going on?

    Are you sure iPhoto is not just asking if it is okay to update your iPhoto library to the latest version? Often when iPhoto is updated it will need to update the library database and it will prompt asking permission to do that.

    Hi,

    I also ran into this problem.

    What you have to do is update it manually.

    First download iPhoto 9.1 from here http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1322, install that.

    Then download iPhoto 9.3 from here http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1545, install that.

    You should be ok after that.

    p.s. you can't just download 9.3 and install that, it won't work, you have to do 9.1 then 9.3

    Hi,

    Yes, sorry I wasn't clear on that.

    Install iLife from CD.

    iPhoto might say, it needs an update, if it picks it up from software update, all well and good, otherwise install 9.1 first and then 9.3 after.

    When I did a clean install of Lion, I also installed Aperture and iLife. I used Aperture and it asked me to update.

    Then I decided to use iPhoto for something, but it wouldn't work and I couldn't see an update in Software Update for iPhoto, so I had to manually install the updates.

    If Apple release any more updates for iPhoto, software update should pick it up, if it doesn't you can always install it manually.

    Hope this helps

    HW
