Effectively, LR5 & LR6 married & gave one, false, reply.
I cancelled all LR5 files on the 3 HD ( C:,K:,J: ), all LR6 back ups prior to the new installation, & bingo as they say, LR6 found the correct catalogue on all 3 HD.
I thus have my safety valves handy.
Thanks for your perseverance.
In lr6, the file folder shows the 3 catalogues I initially opened successfully.
The C: adobe/ new lightroom lr6 catal.lrcat
The J: ext hd , lr6. lrcat.
The K: ext hd, lr6 .lrcat
These same files failed to reopen, as explained.
I have, as a safety measure, a complete LR5 dossier on...
Morning, & thank you for the reply.
I have repeated my (failed) tries to open the LTcat from...the J: ext HD & from the C: new catalog 2021 dossier
both gave the same odd message ( att files )
The catalogue only opens, correctly, by clicking on the bottom tool bar LR icon, which is linked...
My original post : LR6 installer missing, apparently gave the impression that the problem was abandoned ( "W7 come back !)
Not so and I remain in the dark as to the meaning & solving of the error messages.
Having updated the computer to be compatible with W10 & 11, I...
Having taken your advice, I have updated my computer to be compatible with W11 and installed W10.
The installers you sent me worked fine for LR5&6 and PSE19.
then the pbs started to flood in, as the afs show.
I opened LR6 directly from C:/ ...and clipped it on the 'barre...
I will wait for w11 and meanwhile will use the different softwares with which I am familiar.
If I succede in loading lr6 & pse 19, it will be largely sufficient for my now limited use...
All the best.
I was effectively waiting for a reliable W11 release as I hated W8 & am not wideley enthusiastic with W10 on a laptop.
My desktop cpu is 2n gen I3 & obviously needs replacement. As the computor is dedicated to photo, the main parts are, I believe/hope, still viable.
I will appreciate your advice...
Agin, thank you for the help.
Despite having all the serial numbers, the Adobe serial killer just returns those error n°s !
Initially, to instal LR6 ( 2017) I had to update to W7 ( €98 +145 )...
Last year, I bought PSE19, which then asked for W10...and a new CPU...( €100+300)
Bonjour from Up Top,
Thank you for your help.
Unfortunately, the L6/cc link repeats the previous message:
& leaves me no other entry mode.
My browser ( Chrome) is up to date & no sign of error P206 or TLS1.2 pb.
Oddly, I successfully reinstalled LR4.4 from a CD using the serial n°s of LR4 &...
Unable to communicate with the Adobe Robots, I look for help here, amongs Humans !
In 2017, installed LR6 ( CD from Adobe ) on W7 as Visa was not LR6 friendly.
2 days ago multiple problems left me with no apparent choice but to totally uninstall LR6.
I first tried several proposed...
I came down this morning to discover that I had lost the night!
Having created a new catalogue in LR4 and imported some 30000 files correctly, LR proceeded with the 'rendering' operation over night.
At 12.05am, it asked the usual question ; "damaged files, what do I do? "...
I have transfered/ converted a LR2.7 catalogue to LR4 in a new computor.
I have copied the old & new catalogue to an external drive.
When checking dossier sizes, I cannot understand the differing outlays; expl:
For the same b_up date, I have different file size/n°s on C: & L: (...
I have a similar question, just to be clear:
having upgraded my camera, I needed to upgrade PSE, LR and finally windows.
I bought updates and installed PSE10, LR4, W7 correctly.
Unfortunately, I then needed to seriously upgrade my computor...I am assembling a new one.
Having 'upgraded' my Canon EOS 450D to v 600D, I needed to update camera raw ( free ) which then required ( costly )upgrading of: PSE7 to v10, LR2.7 to v4 then windows XP to W7 and finally, my old computor which can no longer cope has to be changed... usual complaint.
But, my question...
I believe that I used the procedure you put forth. ( my notion of manual). However, I must have missed a key as the collections did not feature in my new catalogue.
As I must change computor - this one being too old to cope with LR4 & W7 - I will load LR4 as you described.
A simple question for which I am not certain I have understood the differing procedures...
I switched from XP to W7 then tried to transfer my LR2.7 catalogue to LR4.2 manually.
Fine, except that the collections naturally did not follow.
My set up in the library is as above.
I have just changed my camera from the Canon EOS 450D to the EOS 600D
I use W.XP, LR2.7 & PSE.7 with CRaw 4.5
According to the Adobe file, I need CR 6.4.1 with an update to PSE9 :
However, Adobe adds LR3.4.1 to the compatibility requirements!
As I am with the XP...
