That can happen if Lightroom Classic was not properly shut down. Search your drive for a ".lock" file. If you find it in the folder with your Lightroom Classic catalog, delete it. Be EXTREMELY careful not to delete anything else.

Which OS are you using?

How do you attempt to start the program and what evidence is there that the program is not starting?

Has 10.1.1 ever been successfully opened before?

Have you added image files to a catalog yet?

If you have a [your-catalog-name].lock file next to you catalog while LrC is not running, delete it as already stated by KRseals.

Removing and reinstalling will not clean up the lock file.

Always make sure to properly shut down LrC before shuting down the computer.

tried to open LR older catalog 2-2   instead of catalog 2-2-v10 and it wants to know if I want to upgrade older version. Would this work?
