      Hi, a few days ago I bought Creative Cloud Photography, I downloaded and installed Lightroom and It doesn'w work. Jus appear the little circle, like when other programs run, but nothing happend. Just don't run the program. I saw in the Task Manager and the process runs but inmediatly dissapear. I reboot the computer, reinstaled the program, renames the Folders like your faqs and don't work. I cant' work in Lightroom. By now the Creative Cloud console say that Photoshop and Lightroom are in trial mode, but after reinstaling programs just say Open. Thanks

          Try launching directly from the executable. Go to:

          C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom


          Highlight lightroom (the application) see image below and right-click on it and choose "Run As Administrator"

            Thanks, but ... still doesn't work. I executed as administrator the exe file directly from Explorer.


            I don't understand what happend.


            In the Creative Cloud, Lightroom and Photoshop still appear as Start Trial and my account is log in.

              Same here. I did all things but Lightroom didn't start, untill..:

              It works on my Lightroom CC / WIN 10:

                01- Remove softwares:

              . AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool.exe / clear all

                02- Delete folders "Adobe":

              . C:\Program Files\Adobe

              . C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe

              . C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe (need to rename and restart PC)

              . C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe

              . C:\ProgramData\Adobe (hidden folder)

              . C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Adobe

              . C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Adobe

                03- (If you didn't restart PC until here, do it now). Install Creative Cloud.

                04- Install old version LIGHTROOM through Creative Cloud..

                05- Restart PC.

                06- Try to open LIGHTROOM from the icon itself.

              . Here, probably, LIGHTROOM will not open and will ask for "MSVCP110.dll".

              It is the Microsoft Visual C + + 2012 that, I'm sure, It's already installed on your PC, but, some how without this dll. Microsoft website download / Microsoft Visual C + + 2012:


                07- Try to open LIGHTROOM from the icon itself again after reinstall Microsoft Visual C + + 2012:

              . Here, it will ask for Adobe ID.

                08- After Adobe ID, the LIGHTROOM will open(I hope) only the previous version.

              Close it and try to open through Creative Cloud. The program The program should open smoothly.

                09- Now you can update your LIGHTROOM through Creative Cloud.

                Some things seem different. But it works and after 6 days unable to work, It is all that matters.

                I hope it helps.

                Did you try to reset the preferences?


                They are not reset when you remove and reinstall.
