Hi there - on the creative cloud it shows that my pc is not compatible to upgrade to version 10. Now I can't use lightroom to edit any of my photos. It importants photos into the library but I can't use the development section. Please help!!
I think you got two things mixed up. If you can't upgrade to Lightroom Classic 10, then you should not get the option to try. Simply keep using Lightroom Classic 9. If the Develop module (and Map module) isn't working, then Lightroom is running in 'expired' mode. That means that you have cancelled your subscription or logged out and let it expire.
"says it is not compatible"
What are the exact words? What is your operating system version NUMBER?
You should be able to go back to Lightroom Classic 9.4, but first lets make sure you can't use 10.0. https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/using/install-previous-version.html
If you can't update Windows to 1903 or later, then you'd have to re-install 9.4, following the instructions I gave above.
Hello, I am a little bit confused about what you write above.
Do I understand it wright, that you want to say.
If you have Windows 1903 or higher then Lightrom 10 is not working and I have to go back to Lightroom 9.4
is this what you mean???
I experience the same, download went well but does not start.
I experience the same, download went well but does not start
I noticed that after trying to start the application it seems like nothing is happening, however I saw in the windows task manager there is indeed a process running (maybe this is the conversion from the catalog that is running) and that the application beware the screen will appear after this conversion is completed.
this is just a thought of my own.
It says that I need to upgrade to Windows 10 V1903 - if I knew this I would'nt have press update on LC
Is there a reason that prevents updating your computer to Win 10 V 1903.
Lightroom, or Lightroom Classic?
When you reinstalled and it didn't work ... please explain exactly what you did and what happened that indicated it didn't work. Please quote all error messages word-for-word, unedited, complete.
Uninstalling and reinstalling LrC does NOT remove the old Preferences file. Did you try resetting the LrC Preferences file as outlined at the link I provided?
It worked, but problaly due to starting and killing de LRC process several times my catalog file was corrupted fortaly I made a backup 3 days before the troubles started, that one installed and all my photo's back.
One more reason to make backup on regular times and special before you big changes.
