Installed LR on new computer. It's not reading my saved catalog file which is indexing over 50k photos. Any thoughts?

LR v7 does not have a local catalog!- It is in the Cloud ecosystem, so you cannot "Save" a LR7 Catalog file.

If, in the past, you did use a 'perpetual' version of "Lightroom" that did have a local catalog and local files, then it is Lightroom-Classic v13 that you want, not Lightroom v7.

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

Rob,

Thanks so much. In the past, I was using both the cloud based v7.0 and the classic, but I guess I didn't u derstand this key difference. When I setup my new computer, I didn't install Classic yet. I'll do that, and should be able to get re-connected with my catalog.
