Impossible to update App Photo on Macbook Air


I tried to update the app to the photo on my mb Air.  But the dialog box indicates it cannot update the app because it has been downloaded by another user.

The story on the subject is:

  • I bought the Air MB second hand, and she was wiped out when I bought it. I bought in 2015
  • It was a factory refurbished, model 2013 and has been sold in 2014 for the first owner (of which I am the 2nd after refurbishment)
  • I have updated Photos from iPhoto and migrated all my pictures from picture.
  • I have never been able to update the Photo since the evolution of iPhoto.
  • I'm relatively new to apple products and not counted the post in discussions to fall my way through. So forgive my Nativity if you ask all the complex questions or propose a solution I should know.

Appreciate all the help I want to solve this problem.

I'd be even open to deleting the application and using another if anyone has any suggestions.

Photos for doing Mac applications part of Mac OS X and update only when you install an update to the system.

If you install the latest update of Mac OS X Mac OS X 10.11.2, your Photos for Mac will be updated to version 1.3 of Photos.

You see the error message must be trying to update iPhoto and no pictures.  IPhoto will only show on the AppStore update notifications.

Have you tried updated iPhoto to version 9.6.1 iPhoto?  Update will not work, because Apple has stopped selling iPhoto on the AppStore.  You can reinstall, if you have a version of the AppStore in iPhoto, but if you have only a CD of iLife version you'll be out of luck, see Barney user Tip: cannot be updated iPhoto because it is not available in the App Store

If you work now with the Photos for Mac News, and all your iPhoto library that libraries were migrated to pictures is not necessary to update to the latest iPhoto, however it would be nice to be able to run iPhoto on El Capitan, so try, if it works as described by Barney. But it is only possible if you have a version of the AppStore.

  • Update of the airport & MacBook Air

    I've recently completed the update of the firmware for the Airport (version 7.6.7) express and now when I open my MacBook Air (13-inch, mid 2013 w/1.3 GHz Intel Core i5;) El Capitan 10.11.5; all updates are completed) to use the internet, there is no longer my home wifi automatically.  This is not started past immediately after the update.  Now all of a sudden whenever I wake up my laptop, I had to choose for my wifi instead of having the automatic connection.  I change all parameters of airport utility or with my network preferences.  No other device (including the iPhone and AppleTV) on the network had this problem.  I did take my laptop anywhere else, so I don't know if is not to remember all the networks (even if preferences have known networks listed automatically to connect with) or if it is just with my home network.

    Hello community

    I can´t updated app, store, I have try all the solutions in this net.

    and still the same error 80246007 x 0 and 0x8001074a error

    I need help please, because windows 8.1 is coming and I want to update

    also I try to communicate directly with Microsoft, and when asked for the PID (ID), I insert and always gives me a server error or other problems

    I need help please. Thanks in advance

    I ran into the problem last night where I could not install, reinstall, or update all apps in the Windows store.  I'm still under Windows 8 and 8.1 not for reasons known but that is for another place.
    This problem took me a day to find and troubleshoot, ALLL and I mean about 8 solid hours.  The error codes I received kept windows pointing store of problems with Windows Update or other corruptions of system, but after all of these solutions and executed the partner checks several times nothing was wrong with my Windows Update.  I would have guessed considering how I could still download updates from MS very well.
    What solved MY problem (and I bet that most of your establishments), was actually a file permissions issue.  There are TWO, count them 2 folders that you should be sure your username has full permissions.  I saw there of the patches that speak on one or the other, but you need BOTH.  Here is the path to these files file: (remember 'C' is my root drive, is the name of each user on the system, and if you have customized your installation of windows, or the location of the user folder, you must change this path to match)
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps
    \AppData\Local\Packages C:\Users\
    Before you follow this procedure, access the Windows store and cancel all pending installations (or omitted).
    To set the permissions: (if at any time, the system asks the permission of the administrator, you must grant it)
    1. make sure that you logged in with an administrator account.
    2. open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\Program FIles.
    3. Locate the file WindowsApps (all the way down)
    NOTE: this is a hidden folder, so do not forget, you go to the top of the window and click on the 'View' tab, then check the box next to "Hidden items" in the Show/Hide section.
    4. right click on the WindowsApps file and choose "Properties".
    5. click on the security"" tab.
    6. click on the button "Advanced".
    7.1 if your username is listed in the list under entity double-click on it (otherwise go to 7.2)
    7.1 a - ensure the Type: is 'Allow' and the applies to: is "this folder, subfolders and files.
    7.1 b - click the full control checkbox
    7.1.c - click OK
    7.2 If your username is not listed, click on the button "Add" below the list (you may need to click on 'Edit' to the 'Add' button to appear)
    7.2 a - click on "Select a main" link at the top.
    7.2 b-"Advanced", click on "find now".
    7.2 c - book here your user name in the list and double-click on it
    7.2d - click OK
    7.2E - ensure the Type: is 'Allow' and the applies to: is "this folder, subfolders and files.
    7.2f - click the full control checkbox
    7.2.g - click OK
    8. you should now see your username in the list of the "Advanced Security Settings for WindowsApps" with "Full control" in the access column (if you do not, go back to 7.1 or 7.2 and carefully follow the steps once again).  Click OK
    9 go to C:\Users\\AppData\Local
    NOTE: AppData is a hidden folder, so be sure you have the "Hidden items" box checked
    10. right click on the WindowsApps file and choose "Properties".
    11. click on the security"" tab.
    12. click on the button "Advanced".
    13 follow the same procedure in steps 7.1 or 7.2 to add your username to the list to this folder with full control permissions.
    . Restart your computer.
    That's it, once your computer restarts, you should be able to use the store Windows to install applications and updates.
    Once you confirm that it works for you, I recommend you to create an image of the master volume of your Windows System.  All this happened to me while I was trying to get everything set up initially, but once you do, using the image as a good quick a good known Configuration reboot is a MUCH faster way to solve many problems with Windows... SAME A WAY TO GO BACK to Windows 8 Windows 8.1 IF YOU FIND THE NEED. I KNOW I DID!
    Hope that helps everyone!

  • the Photos App in Mac Book Air how hide

    My friends:

    I want to hide the photos app on my MacBook Air (biblioteca fotos) see attached.

    OK, these pictures are in my iCloud with a security copy, allows you to delete these photos from the photos (photographs) (MacBook Air) app disappear icloud?

    Another question about it; How can put key for photo (biblioteca foto) app in my MacBook Air to access than me?

    Thank you my friends.

    You can't hide it, but you can change its location.

    If you want to keep it private use a different account for your photos and store them in the folder "Pictures" of this account so they will be inaccessible to anyone not connected to this account (unless they have administrator rights and change this folder policy)

    resource for iCloud


    third question is similar to lock the application only you can access. Short to install on a suppression device, you take with you, or install it on a folder in your account that nobody else can use you will probably need a 3rd party app like Mac App blocker, which is supported by the developer, not by Apple.

  • Two Macbook Air sharing a photo library on time Capsule

    I'm trying to set up my 2 TB time capsule to store my photo library and library iTunes music.  My wife and I have a 120 GB 13 "Macbook Air running OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.12 and backup via Wifi to the time capsule.  I want to be able to view, download, download and manage the library both of our computers and so that to use on our iTunes music library.  We have separated Apple ID as well, but we are bound by family.  We take most of our photos with our iPhones (5 and 6 respectively).  Our library is ~ 100 GB and our library of music is about the same size.  It is currently stored on a 500 GB external hard drive that is connected to a Windows PC that we no longer use.  I have several questions on how to achieve this:

    1. Is this possible?
    2. Two MacBooks see the images and the music library at the same time?
    3. Music albums and photos are available when not on our network?
    4. If I open the Capsule in the Finder and open the data file, can I create a file of data next to our backup files server and put all the data?
    5. What is the best way to get the data from the external hard drive (formatted for Windows) on the time Capsule.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is this possible?

    Laughing out loud. at least not without great risk to your photo library. What kind of photo software is... that you are hosting it now on windows?

    iTunes isn't so bad but photos is designed by apple to be shared via the cloud. Not on the local network.

    Two MacBooks see the images and the music library at the same time?

    The two computer cannot load the library at the same time. Yet once, I guess that your photo app is the local of photos of El Capitan.

    Music albums and photos are available when not on our network?

    With the help of the CCMM it's possible... but again, it is certainly the wrong way to do things. If you try any kind of remotely change, I'd put the chances of corruption from 50% to 90% about.

    If I open the Capsule in the Finder and open the data file, can I create a file of data next to our backup files server and put all the data?

    Yes. But I think that you will have problems with permissions.

    What is the best way to get the data from the external hard drive (formatted for Windows) on the time Capsule.

    Copy directly on TC drive from your windows computer. But the fact that since the Mac, otherwise you will have permissions issues directly before you create.

    I highly recommend get advice on the specific app you use to library... Ask in the photos area. Apple did not build a server of photos or iphoto version... they have build a cloud version. That is how they intend to use it.

    They warn the risk of corruption is very high. If you try this make double sure you have good backups updated library. He's easy to corrupt if you use wireless LAN because applications are not designed for local service.

    TM cannot back up the readers of network so you can buy Carbon Copy Cloner for example or something of the sort.

    Please be double careful and triple aware of what you want.
