I have been using Adobe Lightroom 6 under Windows 10 without problems for a couple of years.
Now, for some reason it has stopped loading properly.  When I run the Lightroom.exe, it appears to load ok and displays the Lighroom window with list of Catalog, Folders & Collections on the left and the Develop functions, etc on the right.  However, before I can take any further action, the window disappears and the program appears to kill instelf.

I have tried the following so far :-
1) Deleting the Catalog and creating a new, empty catalogue.
2) Deleting the app and installing a new, clean version in the same location
3) Deleting the app and installing a new, clean version in a different location.

None of the above seem to make any difference. Every time I try it, the program appears to load ok and then kills itself.  Can anyone suggest what may be wrong and a possible remedy ?

Thanks,
Keith Smith

Lots of people have been reporting that older versions of LR 6 no longer run.  Try installing LR 6.14 (the last version of LR) following the instructions here:

Several have reported that fixes their issue.
