MacBook Air OS Monterey 

lightroom classic 11.5

 

always worked prior to upgrades 

did upgrades only to see if it would fix the issues but it hasn't. 

I have tried the accessibility check marks as previously mentioned in other threads. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Rebooting. 

Any suggestions so I can continue editing my sessions?

If there's a lock file present, Lightroom will not launch at all, and you'll get the message about the catalog being open in another application. So there's something else going on here.
