I have a large collections of photos, and I want to open them with LrC, but no matter what I try, LrC doesn't start up anymore. What can be wrong?
Please provide the following basic information:
According to the Creative Cloud Desktop the Lightroom Classic is up-to-date. I can't make a screenshot because the application doesn't start
I have an up-to-date Windows 10 HP laptop:
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6560U CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.20 GHz
Geïnstalleerd RAM-geheugen 16,0 GB (15,9 GB beschikbaar)
Type systeem 64-bits besturingssysteem, x64-processor
Editie Windows 10 Home
Build van besturingssysteem 19042.928
Ervaring Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0
I have also tried to directly start de .lrcat file, as suggested by Michael Hoffman in another question, but doesn't work either
What is the exact error message you get?
I don't get an error message, that's the problem. LrC doesn't start at all
How far do you get into the process of opening Lightroom Classic? Do you see the splash screen? Do you see the Lightroom Classic window?
On my desktop and on my taskbar is an icon with LrC. When I click the icon, it seems to start, (I see a blue circle, something is waiting), but after a few seconds the circle disappears and nothing happens anymore.
So no spash screens, or a Lightroom window
I clicked on the link "lightroom-doesnt-start"
Step 1 and 2 completed
Once you've uninstalled these packages, download and reinstall the 2005, 2008, and 2010 versions of Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages.
Use the following Microsoft links for download and install instructions:
To links for de Redistributable Package (x86 and x64) doesn't work
With package do I have to download for the latest supported Visual C++ ?
Thank you all for the responses.
Someway there was a version of adobe lightroom in the taskbar manager, and it kept coming although I restarted my computer.
After I deleted this version, I restarted my laptop, and there it was: Lightroom did it
so case closed
