Lightroom Classic won't open a catalogue


By @Botzkah

 

Why not? What happens? If there is an error message, please tell us the exact unedited word-for-word error message.

Also please state the version NUMBER of your LrC and the version NUMBER of your operating system. We need version NUMBERs and not words like "up-to-date" or "latest".

Please take a look into the folder where the catalog file is located if there's a .lock file. If yes, delete it and check again if LR opens the catalog now.

 

In a next step try is to reset the preferences to the default settings by doing the following steps:

  • Close Lightroom.
  • Windows: Hold down [Alt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
    Mac: Hold down [Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
  • Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
  • Close Lightroom.
  • Restart Lightroom.

 

It's recommended to backup your preferences before you reset the preferences to the default settings:

If this all doesn't help please give us mor information as @dj_paige wrote.
