Can't open LR.PNGw

Hi! Please can anybody explain what happened? I have only one catalog, I closed and reopened LR, closed any app or software.

I have to continue my work... 

Thanks

The problem is that a previous instance of LR did not exit cleanly leaving around some temporary files. Easy fix.

 

Using Windows File Explorer or Mac Finder, navigate to the folder containing your catalog (*.LrCat) file.

In that folder there is probably a *.lock file with the same name as the catalog, just .Lock instead of .LrCat.

Delete the .lock file. Do NOT delete any other file.
