    Lightroom 6 (non CC) will not open


      After working for several weeks Lightroom 6 (non cloud version) will not open. All I repeatedly get is "Lightroom unexpectedly quit" box with pages of technical stuff that I would paste here but the box will not let me copy and paste it (thats extremely well designed). I have reset all preferences, been to the wholly useless "Adobe Customer Care", used Disk utilities and Disc Warrior to do all file repairs etc all to no avail. I am on a recent Macbook Pro Retina using system 10.10.5.

      All help will be appreciated.

          2. Adobe folder under System Library:


          • Go to your Finder> Click on Go> Click on Go to folder> type /library.

            Thanks,Before I got your email I went to Adobe and re downloaded Lightroom and reinstalled it. It now seems to be working fairly well. Eric Weinerericweinerphotography.com
