    Cannot open catalog in Lightroom

    Kazzlbe

      I just subscribed to Creative Cloud and downloaded Lightroom (as a replacement for Aperture). I started with the video tutorial "How to manage your digital photos". However, I cannot get Lightroom to work at all. It downloaded OK but when I opened it for the first time, I didn't get any popup asking me what country I was in. Instead, I received an error message:

       

      An error occurred when attempting to change modules.

       

      I can see that it has created a Lightroom folder in Pictures with two files - Lightroom 5 Previews and Lightroom 5.lrcat. I thought these may be corrupt for some reason so I created a new catalog Lightroom 5. Again same error message but I can see a folder 'Lightroom 5' containing two files Lightroom 5 Previews and Lightroom 5.lrcat.

       

      I tried opening Preferences to see if there was anything in there that may help fix the issue but Preferences won't open.

       

      I'm running a Mac with OSX Yosemite and 8GBs of memory ...
