I installed Lightroom Classic by mistake av removed it, then I installed Lightroom 5 that I have the lisens for. When I try to start Lightroom I get this messagwe: "The lightroom catalog named "Lightroom Catalog" cannot be opened because it is too new to be used by this version of Lightroom. Would you like to select a different catalog?" What shall I do to avoid this message and be able to start Lightroom 5?

you can Remove all of them. Once you create a New Catalog in LR5 most if not all of them will be recreated so that they work properly with LR5.

As above.

The upgrade of the catalog was done to a Copy of your original LR5 catalog. So that original LR 5 catalog is still on your system.

Search you hard drive for .lrcat to see how many actual catalogs you have. One of them, if more than 2 and Not In a folder called Backups, is your original catalog. Just double click on it. Then Delete the other or others, that are Not in a folder called Backups.

Oh then you will either need to get your original catalog from your old computer, if possible, or just start a New catalog with LR5. Then import whatever images you want to the new LR5 catalog file.
