    Lightroom opening problem


      I have had LR5 which I installed as an update from LR4, through adobe, some 6 months ago and, until now, have had no problems. Yesterday I tried to open Lightroom and could not, it just briefly cycled then nothing. I have trie several times but cannot open LR5 on my PC. I have changed nothing, no settings, programs...........nothing.   How do I open LR5 ?

          Hi Andrew,


          Please try below steps


          • Restart your Computer


          • Open Lightroom as an Administrator.Right Click on Lightroom and select "Run as Administrator"


          • Reset Lightroom Preferences

              Backup your catalog first.Go to Pictures/Lightroom  and copy catalog to Desktop

            Navigate to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences

            (**Appdata is an hidden Folder(Refer Show hidden files - Windows Help) to show the hidden folder)

            and rename Lightroom 5 Preferences.agprefs  to Lightroom 5 Preferences.agprefs.OLD

          Let us know if that helps
