i got a new system (Win 10, formerly win7) and installed the Lightroom Classic rom the Cloud App.
Now i want to open or import the lightroom catalogue. but i get the attached error alert - it says there is now "writing perimssion" (the file + folder don´t have any restrictions) or another adobe app using this file (but there is no other adobe app opened)
ps: the workaround with deleting the .lock file does not work..
1. any ideas to open this acatalogue?
2. where are the settings and final versions of my edited photos saved? in this catalogue file?
thank you soo much for your ideas!
best wishes from Hamburg/Germany, Alex

thanks dj_paige, here it is:
OS upgrades can easily mess with user permissions.
Using Windows File Explorer, check your account permissions on the drive, on the root picture folder, on the catalog folder, and on the LrCat file.
thanks ManiacJoe. i already did all of that - but it doesn´t work
this is the error message.
If the permissions for your user account seem correct, try setting the permissions for the "everyone" group and see what happens.
hey ManiacJoe, it seemed this whas the needed answer.
I didn´t need todo it for Everyone, just for the user
