That's ok. An update can only be installed if the corresponding program is also closed.

Or I have misunderstand your question.If yes, please describe your issue mor detailed.

What your are doing exactly.

Whats's the exact error message?

Which version of Lightroom and MacOS do you use?

Yeah, error message says I have to close LRC as it's in conflict with trying to update it, which is an infinite loop of sh*t.

 

Lightroom Classic version: 11.3.1

MacOS Monterey 12.5

 

How do I update LRC if it's closed??

By @MrGiff

 

Normally the updates were install within the Adobe Creative Desktop Client. In the client the available updates were shown for the appropriate apps. To install the update(s) you click on "Update".

On your computer it seems Lr hasn't closed properly. So just restart your Mac and immediately update LrC from Adobe's Creative Cloud app.

Cool, shall try that. Thanks very much.

 

Though weird how neither Mac nor LRC notify me that this will happen.

It's updating now. Thanks for your help!

 

Adobe: as a newbie to Mac, I'd've appreciated LRC disaplaying a notification to say that the update would be triggered by a restart.

Update done!

 

I open LRC, click Help to check the version, but now the Help drop down menu bar is impossible to close.

 

Does no one test software any more?

 

macOS is full of oddities too.

Ah, no, another UX fail: I couldn't close the Help menu (which was floating above the 'whats new in LRC' message) til I'd clicked to close the 'whats new..,' message.
