Lightroom Version
Lightroom CC 4.1 AND Lightroom 6
Operating System
  1. macOS 11.0 Big Sur
So, I had Lightroom 6 - [icon is a Square box with black in-fill with light grey border and 'Lr' in light grey.
Must have had about 1,500 pictures all saved in their various folders, which was nice

Then moved to Lightroom CC - [icon has squared off corners, black in-fill, no border, with 'Lr in blue letters.

I have both running - OR HAD

The CC runs okay, and I have all my newer folders
When I select Lr 6 - the icon comes on for about 0.5 second and then flashes off. This happens which ever way I access it.
This now means that ALL my Lr pictures are no longer available
So HELP, How can I get to the pictures I had before???

Lightroom 6 is ancient software. It isn't supported any more, and obviously it was never tested on MacOS Big Sur.
What you can do is take a subscription to Lighroom Classic (that would be the 'Photography plan', not the 'Lightroom plan'). Open your old Lightroom 6 catalog in Lightroom Classic, let it upgrade the catalog and you're good to go again.
