Ater registering and trying to open the program

Jul 30, 2013 4:44 PM

I have had this problem on Lightroom, 3, 4, and 5 on this one computer . . .

 

When I try to open Lightroom, I get an error message "assertion failed!"and then "Lightoom - Opening Catalog: Judy_1 copy.jpg.lrcat"

THe program locks up at that point and I can't use it.

    hold the alt-key and click on your desktop icon.  you should be offered options to open an existing lr catalog.

    Try to clear preferences and launch Lightroom. Please find the mentioned kb showing location of Lightroom preferences: http://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/preference-file-locations-lightroo m-4.html

    Try holding down the Ctrl key while you start the program.  That is the combination that should give you a list of your catalogs.  Choose the original catalog, and you should be able to get it going.
