        I'm needing to Click so many times I loss count.

          I have LR6 upgrade licence. I am not using LR CC.

           

          I am having the same issue. Although I am not getting the message every time I start up LR. And today I noticed I have had to click more than once when it did appear.

           

          I inserted the upgrade licence # on the install.

           

          I have also signed out of Adobe (Under the HELP tab) while LR is open, closed the program and then re-opened it and signed back in with the licence #'s (This was suggested someplace in the Adobe HELP website.)

           

          I have the sync images with LR Mobile turned off.

           

          I seem to be on 30 day trial despite all the above.

           

          Hopefully someone will answer the question for us.

            Just found another thread on what seems to be the same topic.

             

            There is a solution offered, but it does not seem to work all the time.

             

            I have not tried it yet.

              This is an answer found else where in this form, it worded for me. I wish anyone else with the same problem luck with it.

              He mentions the routine at the end of this message. The only thing I have left to do is dig in and better understand why this fixes the problem. And I don't want to keep those two directories on my desktop even though it looks like they may have been regenerated when I started Dreamweaver. As a side note ... in step 3 when I ran DW as administrator it asked me to sign in to my creative cloud account which I had already done ... and then it notified me that the DW installation would be tied to my Creative Cloud ID ... which, I would have thought was the case already. It actually looked like it was "applying permissions" to the application that should have been done when I first installed DW. Regardless, there is nothing like stable software to help you be more productive and now I can use DW without having to go through 5 minutes of gyrations to get it started.

              Try the following and see if it solves your problem:

              1. In C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe, find the SL Cache folder and move it to your Desktop.
              2. In C:\ProgramData\Adobe, find the SL Store folder and move it to your Desktop.
              3. R Click on your Lightroom icon and “Run as Administrator”.
              4. If it opens correctly, that shows it is working now.
              5. Close Lightroom and reopen the application normally.

                  Glad it worked for you Marvin.

                   

                  As mentioned in my reply from June 24th, I still haven't tried it yet as there were too many people for whom it did not work.

                   

                  But when/if my issue becomes more serious, I may have to bite the bullet and try it.
