      Lightroom will not start.  Receive msg. that other program is using catalog, select other catalog.  No other program is open.  Receive same msg. in Safe mode and clean boot.  Tried creating another catalog and selecting it but continue to receive same error msg.

          Go to the folder that contains your catalog file, look for a file whose name ends with .LOCK or .lock, delete only that .lock file, do not delete anything else.

            THANK YOU, THANK YOU!   I have to do some more checking on catalog location.  I saw the catalog filed somewhere else but it did not have the ".lock" file in it.  Appears I have the catalog stored in two different places.  Thanks for the ultra rapid response!
