I upgraded from Lion to Maverick. Now iPhoto does not work.

This answer was rated:

I upgraded from Lion to Maverick. Now iPhoto does not work. When I go to the App store to upgrade iPhoto, and I'm presented with the prompt to sign in to download, the Apple ID field defaults to an old Apple ID I have not use in some time. The ID is greyed out thereby prohibiting me from changing it. I tried rebooting the machine, and my current, active Apple ID comes up, but the login refuses to accept my current password. I am at a loss. I need my photos.

Please advise.

I want to know how to upgrade iPhoto to work with Maverick! Apple botched this one IMHO

Thank you for the update Charlie.

May I remote in and fix this for you?

BTW, I agree that Apple totally botched this one.

OK, give me a second

Thank you.

Please, use Safari for the link below.

Please, click the following link and allow the remote app to run:

Are you having any problems with running that remote application after it is downloaded?

You may have to do the following first.

Please, do the following:
- Click the Apple icon on the top left
- Click System Preferences
- Click Security
- Choose the option on the bottom that says it can install from anywhere and save that.

Once that is complete, please, try again.

Once I remote in, we can change that back.

I did all that crap in system preferences, security, etc, and it still won't hook up to a joint session. HELP!

Thank you.

Let's try this option.

- Please, click the following link, download that file, and run the file:
- Then download and allow that remote app to run.
