I've only had Lightroom 6 for a couple of weeks, but I've had to reinstall 3 times so far. When I click to start it it opens up initially, but all the middle is missing and the mouse cursor is that spinning wait thing. I've left it 20 minutes so far and no change and when I go to close it Windows asks if I want to look for a solution. (Which Windows never finds anyway...)
Is this a common problem with an easy fix does anyone know?
Would suggest you to update Lightroom to 6.4 : Keeping Lightroom Up-to-Date
If that does not help, please share the crash logs so that we can get to know the cause of the crash/freeze : Photoshop Elements Editor Help | How to Find Crash Logs on Windows
Didn't know about that crash logs page, thanks, good one.
I clicked on update within Lightroom, it was the first thing I did after I bought it. There was no update and I did not know about that page you shared. So, thanks that page is very useful, I'll use that from now on.
