    LR6 will not auto start when memory card is inserted

    stuart253

      Hello,

       

      Recently upgraded to LR6 from LR 5.7.1. When LR 5.7.1 was installed, it would auto start when memory card was inserted. With only LR6 installed it does not open when memory card has been inserted.

      I do have "Show import dialog when a memory card is detected".

       

      I have LR 6.0.1 installed.

       

      When memory card is inserted , the following error is displayed:

       

       

      If I right click on memory drive and select Open Auto play, a list of programs are displayed including LR. The program that is highlighted is

       

      If I click on LR from the above list, I encounter "Application not found" error.

       

      When I manually start LR6, it works and I can manually import from the memory card.

       

      What can I do to resolve this issue?

       

      Thanks

          Yes, Autoplay is still trying to run LR5.

          There is a previous thread with notes on how to edit the Windows Registry to fix this, if you are comfortable doing so.

            ManiacJoe,

             

            Thanks for your response, I did see the answer you were referring to but it at first appeared to not resolve my issue. but........

             

            After re-reading it and following exactly what it said, it resolved my issue.

             

            The answer was :

             

            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:

            HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Adobe.AdobeLightroom64\shell\open\command

             

            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"

             

             

            Thanks again.
