After removing the .lock file, light room still gaves the error " can not open catalog.
anyone Bas a solution to solvent thuis ?
Was LrC closed when you deleted the Lock file?
Did you restart your computer afterwards?
What is the complete unedited word-for-word error message?
Unexpected error opening catalog
You need to unzip a recent backup of your catalog file, place it in a different folder than the original catalog file, and then double-click on it to open it. If that doesn't work, you need to unzip a recent backup of your catalog file (again), place it on a different disk than the original catalog file, and then double-click on it to open it.
I tried both solutions, but the error stays.
So you unzipped a backup, (not the same backup that didn't work on the first try, but a new unzipped backup) put this backup on a different disk than the original, double-clicked on it and it still didn't open and gave you same error message? Please confirm that this is exactly what you did.
Do you have slightly older backups you can use?
That's were the steps I did.
I tried it With an older backup but without results.
It is best to re install LRC ?
