First of all thank you for absence of option to write to support for technical question. It is always pleasure for me to pay a subscription fee and realize there is no option to contact support. You made my move to C1 easier.

Back to the problem.

LR 2015.12. Right after update.

When I open LR after restart it tries to open new instances of the same catalog again. Again and again. And just can't stop.

It continues after reinstall.

In addition to that it says that my trial has expired and proposes to buy the software again. Last time activated - 19 juillet 2017

This did not work for me. The lrct file was damaged and could not be restored.
However, I found another way to solve this issue. First I uninstalled Lightroom and after that I lauched Ligtroom Classic again. All of a sudden I could open a backupfile. Lost some weeks of work, but I had it working again.
