Hello.

 

I bought Lightroom 5 years ago. My version is Lightroom 5.7.1

I changed my computer a few months ago. It is now a MacbookAir version 11.6.1

Lightroom used to work normally on this computer but for a few days, i encounter strange things :

1 - I can't import images any more. When I try to import photos, I can't see the previews and when I try to import, the task starts but never ends.

2 - When I try to Import, some new folders have appeared, that I didn't see before ( 4 different "Makintosh HD", VM, Preboot, Update, xART, iSCPreboot, Hardware)

3 - When i try to quit Lightroom, it blocks and i have to force to quit.

 

Any idea what i can do?

Must I reinstall Lightroom 5? How?

Most of the Creative Suite won't run on any MacOS from Catalina onward. Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications. I think I remember seeing that LR for Mac was 64-bits, and there are some workaround to get it running, but I don't use Mac so I don't recall them.

 

I'm going to move this to the Download & Install forum, where there are ACPs who do know the workarounds and can better advise you.

You can try posting to the Lightroom forum, maybe? No guarantees that someone who has an answer or suggestion will see it, though.
