Hi with the recent Lightroom Classic update I am continually being asked to upgrade the catalog.

 

Many attempts at doing this including using other catalog files and new creating a new catalog files it is still not working properly!!!!

 

Everytime I open Lightroom the upgrade dialogue box comes up but it is not pointing to the correct catalog file, I search for the correct file it then upgrades and works, when I exit it askes to be backed which I do but then have to go throught the same process everytime.

In Lightroom Classic, change the setting about which catalog to use by default. Edit->Preferences->General

What do you mean "It doesn't Work". Try Hard Coding, Setting the Path, to the new V10 catalog that was created.

 

2020-11-21 09_11_25-LrC V10 Catalog - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic - Library.png

 

If that does't work then you may have a corrupted LrC Preferences file and you need to Reset it.

Did you set the option to select the new Lightroom Classic V10 catalog that you want to open?

 

If that doesn't work, you can create a shortcut to the proper V10 catalog file, place that on your desktop, and then double-click on the shortcut instead of double-clicking on the LrC icon.

I think the answer from @Just Shoot Me is probably a better answer than mine; although either might work.

You can try resetting your preferences: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-do-i-reset-lightrooms-preferences/

 

Another possible workaround is to find the converted (Lightroom Classic v10.0) catalog file, make a shortcut of that on your desktop, and then double-click on the shortcut instead of double-clicking on the Lightroom Classic icon.

Instead of  starting lightroom by double click  on the shortcut icon, use your OS File Manager, navigate to your new catalog (will include -v10 in the file name) double click on the catalog. Does that behave?
