A catalogue that I am trying to open is giving me this error:
"The Lightroom catalog name '...' cannot be opened because it is too new to be used by this version of Lightroom. Would you like to select a different catalog?"
I have lightroom CC and the app is completely up to date. Why wont it open?
I am trying to open the catalog on a PC running Windows 7. The catalog was previously opened and saved using a Mac. Are there different editions of Lightroom based on operating systems?
Thanks for any help!
Lightroom catalogs are cross platform, but not backwards compatible.
So if you try to open a catalog that originates from the CC version in Lightroom 5 or older, you'll get that message.
Please verify the version you are using by going to Help > About Lightroom.
Go to the /help/system-info dialog and make sure you are running version 6.x/2015.x
If you upgraded from version 5.x, 5.x may still be on your computer and might be the one you are running by mistake.
