Check the autoplay settings for your operating system.
The autoplay was set to Lightroom 5 and I changed it to Lightroom 6, the only other Lightroom option. This did not make a difference. I clicked save and restarted the machine. It still defaults to Lightroom 5.7 when a card is inserted.
In my programs and files, I show Lightroom 5.7, Lightroom, but no Lightroom CC. I do show Photshop CC, which I also have.
There is no Lightroom CC folder. The new version of Lightroom is in a folder simply named Adobe Lightroom. It is in the Adobe folder in Program Files.
Any other suggestions on how to stop the default to Lightroom 5.7 when I insert a card? Also, there must be a way to upgrade to Lightroom 6.0 what is it. My autoplay shows Lightroom 6.0 as a selection, which I did, but it still went to Lightroom 5.7. I thought maybe Lightroom 6 referred to Lightroom CC.
Thank you for your patience!
I also simply get taken to the CC screen, rather than being able to download an update.
I had this problem and I was able to fix it by editing the Windows registry (it was only a minor edit).
I changed the value of the following registry key:
The value was:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.7\Lightroom.exe "%L"
I changed it to:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom\lightroom.exe "%L"
I did something similar, but the old fashion way, I called Adobe. One of the reps took control of my PC and did a registry change, which corrected the problem. It was something similar to yours. Now when I insert a card it goes to LIghtroom CC.
Thank you for your suggestion.
This fixed it! But I also changed the name Adobe.AdobeLightroom64 to remove the 64, as I had removed it at the other location. Here is the revised key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.AdobeLightroom\shell\open\command (For Data, I entered what you advised)
and here is the "other location" I changed:
I changed InvokeProgID to Adobe.AdobeLightroom (I removed the 64)
I imagine it will work so long as both locations have the same string.
DanaJ, over at Lightroom CC import? - Lightroom Forums had this explanation:
Adobe.AdobeLightroom has the shell\open\command (line): (at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\)
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom\Lightroom.exe "%L"
Adobe.AdobeLightroom64 has the shell\open\command (line):
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.7.1\Lightroom.exe "%L"
But I only had the "64" version at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\, so I renamed it to get rid of the 64.
