Right click on Adobe folder and select "GetInfo" option.
Expand the Sharing & Permissions section.
Click the lock icon in the lower-right corner. Enter your administrator user name and password when prompted, and then click OK.
Please click on '+' symbol , it will open list of user accounts. Add Currently logged in user name and Administrator option,
Then provide "Read & Write" permission to Currently logged in user name and Administrator option,.
Click the Gear icon, and select Apply to Enclosed Item. Close the Get Info dialog box.
Then launch Lightroom app and check.
Thanks, these instructions corrected my problem and Lightroom is fully operational.
Glad to hear that.
You are welcome
I get the same error since i updated to LR 6.3 !
Already changed permission as written above, but still the same error.
Removed preference file -> didn't help !
Tried new user -> still not working !
Same here as well, except I didn't try new user. Nothing worked, still getting the error message.
Did you tried Root account?
Sorry, not sure what you mean....
Enable Root account and check once :
Root User account is Super user account with superior privileges. You can try launching CC app once.
You cannot create Root account , It is an built in user account , you can enable it and disable it as per your choice.
Step for enabling Root user account :
(Applies for Yosemite as well)
How to log in as root
- If you are logged in, choose Log Out from the Apple menu.
- If you are logging in from a list of usernames with pictures, click Other.
- In the Name field, type: root
- In the Password field, type the password you defined when setting up the root user account.
Once you logged in to Root Account try to launch Lightroom app.
Wow, I had no idea that existed....thanks. As it turns out, I just uninstalled and reinstalled Lightroom and now it works. Thanks for the tip, though, that might come in handy in the future....
After deinstalling, installing 6.0 and then manual (not via application Manager) update to 6.3 its working again
