Lightroom Version
Operating System:
Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):
I'm trying to execute the latest upgrade and I have the usual problem: The dialog tells me to save my work, close LR, and click continue. But when I close LR, the dialog disappears.
How do I get past this?
Don't update through Lightroom, update (when Lightroom is not running) through the CC app in your menu bar.
Thanks, John!
The CC app wasn't in my menu bar, I had to find it in the Apps folder...
