  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

I have updated Classic to version 8.3 via the desktop app. The update made a new folder in the root of my C drive with the name "reset folder" instead of installing in the folder C: Application files Adobe where the previous version was installed. Is there anyone in this forum who can explain this?

Windows 10 is updated and the version is English

That didn't happen on my iMac, but the the Dock shortcut was broken and I had to re-create it.

I don't see that on Windows 10, either. LR 8.3 got installed in the normal place with no "reset folder."

I have come home where my desktop is and updated without problems.
It is perhaps a problem on my laptop that is only 6 months old.
Windows 10 64bit Intel i7 2.2 Ghz 32 Gb Ram and 500Gb SSD disk.

A brief update on this installation problem.

I have investigated the reason why Lightroom Classic was not installed correctly.

I found the reason in the Creative Cloud app.

In the Preferences menu under the Apps tab there is a point where you define Install Location it pointed to the "Reset Folder" I changed it to the right location, the folder "program files"

I installed Lightroom again and now everything is as it should be.
