    Windows 10 upgrade then "unexpected error opening catalog"

    DarrylB Level 1

      I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, which went fine. I then saw there was an update available for Lightroom and Photoshop CC in my Creative Cloud. I installed those upgrades, which also went fine.


      Photoshop launches fine but Lightroom doesn't and I get a message box up saying "unexpected error opening catalog" with 3 options; try again, choose another catalog, or exit. It has selected the right catalog and there is no other catalog for me to select.


      Interestingly, if I right click on the Lightroom shortcut or .exe file and "run as administrator" the program launches fine and my photos are all there.


      My user account settings are unchanged from Windows 8.1. Rebooting doesn't help.


      Any thoughts?
