"The Lightroom catalog named X cannot be opened because it is too new to be used by this version of Lightroom. Would you like to select a different catalog?"

 

I am trying to open a catalog created by a different user. When I try to open it I get the above message. However, my Lightroom CC and Lighroom Classic CC is totally up-to-date. Any idea on how to fix?

1. Bring up LrC, click on Help, then System Info. What version is reported?

2. Is that version correct? Or is it older than expected?

 

Wondering if you had upgraded LrC. If you had gone from say v10 to v11, upgraded the catalog(s), but either you have two copy's of LrC installed or you rolled back the version to a pre upgrade.
