My lightroom classic will not open anymore. It was fine 2 days ago and my photoshop works but lightroom won't. I have restarted my computer, updated the app (said my lightroom was open but I had no way to access it at all), and tried opening it through other ways but it still won't open. When I click on it, my mouse has the loading symbol for a second then it goes away and nothing happens, how do I fix this without redownloading it?
Which version of Lightroom? Which operating system?
Lightroom Classic v 11.2 on a windows system (I believe windows 10?) on a laptop.
If Lightrooms' crashed and appears closed, either task manager to force it to quit or a restart are required. If this isn't working, try resetting the preferences.
Ive openend it in task manager and I only get the option to end task, so I ended all the tasks involving lightroom and tried to open it back up to no avail. It says its running in the background everytime I try to open it though, is that possibly the issue?
"said my lightroom was open..."
If I interpret this another way, it possibly means that a .LOCK file is preventing you from opening the catalog.
Followed this, deleted my lock files and still have no lightroom. Im not even getting an error file of any kind it just doesn't open.
