    lightroom 6 doesn't want to launch?

    lucl14418720

      lightroom 6 doesn't want to launch, adobe website says it is because of my graphic card amd radeon hd6670 , i install the beta driver you wrote still it doesn't work, i try changing the preference thing you wrote, it is not there, I just wasted $200 something dollars for something that doesn't work , and your website says I have to spend another $200 for another card, and by the way adobe website is the worst website I ever saw, can not find anything there except the word cloud.

      I just uninstall lightroom and wasted an activation, re-install, still doesn't work.

          What operating system do you use? Error messages?

            a click on the icon ,lightroom doesn't open and after a few sec. a square appears

            with a message

             

            adobe photoshop lightroom has stopped working (in big letters in a blue square)

            underneath in small letters    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. please close the program.

             

            underneath in big letters a green arrow with Close the program

             

            windows 7  64 bit

            even if a change graphic card, I do not have a guarantee that it would work after.

            more money spend for nothing

              done the first part yesterday, the beta version of amd , no good

              downloaded yesterday lightroom , so it is the latest version   no good

              did the trouble shooting

              try everything before I ask questions ! not after !

               

              on the internet i saw it could be anti virus blocking , try it   no good

              try the thing about %appdata% and changing something funny do not find %appdata%

              found something but wasn't the same line as lightroom help said.

               

              I should have stop thinking about it, 1 month ago try the trial versions, and had the same message(not working)

              I needed it lightroom 6 because the raw picture of my new camera olympus om-d e-m5 mark 2 ,

              And lightroom 5 doesn't have it.

              I wonder if lightroom 5 could be install ! instead of the 6 and but the data of the camera ?

                The %appdata% is normally hidden. In the options from the Windows Explorer you set that appdata is shown.

                  yesterday i found the appdata but there is no % in front and the back of it

                  and once I open the preference thing, it is not the same word that is written.

                  tired of this stupid junk lightroom 6, .

                  I downloaded the dng converter from adobe, converted my raw files to dng

                  remove ligthroom 6, install lightroom 5,7,1 trial versions, and that works,

                  but I think I am losing some picture quality, the picture seems a little out of focus, maybe it just my imagination.

                  send an email to the company who sold me lightroom 6 and ask them to try to negociate

                  with adobe to change it to lightroom 5.

                  unless adobe can come out with a solution(and buying a new graphic card is not a solution)

                   

                  to whom it may concern , I will say to all my friend in my photo club, that lightroom 6 is a piece of junk.
