I have recently upgraded my pc-laptop to win10. Formatted my SSD hard drive and reinstalled Lightroom from my CD. I have also installed CC (premiere pro).
Now the problem.
My Old catalogue wich i like to open or import does not open. A new catalog triggers LR to open the old catalog. I can see a text quickly and LR appears in the task manager but its not working.
I have installed a version of Lightroom CC. Same result

Locate the catalog on the system and double-click it to force Lightroom to open it, rather than a default empty catalog. Does that work?

No, it keeps open my main "LRmastercatalog" even if i start a temp called "catalog".
I cant even check witch version of LR6 im running!
Is it my windovs upgrade or my install of Creativ cloud?

Now i have reinstaled LR and got it to work.

I tried to merge the old catalog into the new, but it fails.........
The icon is missing on the catalogue file!!!

They are in swedish but you are all klever people.

I also tried to open my old catalog with no success. Now im back to square one, possibel reinstall tomorrow.........
