I have Lightroom Classic 10.3 on a Mac OS 11.5.1 M1 Mac and have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application, but it still won't launch. The launch window appears, but it fails and closes almost immediately.

Hi,

 

We're sorry about the trouble while launching Lightroom Classic on your M1 Mac? Would you mind telling us if the application stopped working after the recent macOS update?

 

Please ensure that Lightroom Classic has the necessary permissions on your Mac by following the steps mentioned below:

1. Go to the System Preferences for your Mac, then Security and Privacy, then select the Privacy tab.

2. Then select Accessibility from the list to the left & check if Lightroom Classic is added to the list with a check mark in front of it.

3. If Lightroom Classic is not a part of the list, please add it by unlocking the window first using the lock at the bottom left, then clicking the + icon & navigating to the Applications folder.

4. Also, grant permissions to Lightroom Classic under Full disk access located in the same list as Accessibility.

5. Once done, restart the Mac & check if it helps.

 

If the issue persists, you can try to reset the preferences of Lightroom Classic manually using the steps mentioned here: https://adobe.ly/2JSym5e

Please backup your presets prior to resetting the preferences.

 

Let us know how it goes!

Regards,

Nikunj

Thanks for this. I've tried all this and it still won't get past the startup screen. I'm running OS Monterey 12.0.1 on an M1 Mac. It was working fine until yesterday.  Any suggestions?

Nothing I can share with any confidence. I made sure I had the latest update -- I was indeed one behind -- and restarted. That didn't immediately fix the problem, but it did resolve the next time I restarted and launched. Hope that helps ...

Okay everyone here's how I fixed it. I created a new system/user account in Mac OS and then deleted the old one. Didn't require a reinstall, but you do have to log back into everything.

Turn off the wi-fi and run the Lightroom or Photoshop. Problem solved.
Hope it will help!
