I purchased my lightroom as a stand alone software package and loaded. Have been using it from some time now, went to open today and sent me back to the panel asking if I want to purchase or not. What has happen to all the processed pictures I have been working for months and what has happened to the software I purchased?
Could you please share the screenshot of the message that you are getting while loading Lightroom?
It seems to be an activation issue, your catalog would still be there as is with all your edits in it.
