    Need help to solve the "UNEXPECTED ERROR OPENING CATALOG"

    fabriceb76105359

      Hello,

       

      LR6 is installed on my computer under Windows 10 Pro and it worked for several months without any issue.

      However, since few days I'm experiencing the "Unexpected error opening catalog".

       

      I tried to solve it by following these recommandations :

      Error: "Unexpected error opening catalog" occurs in Lightroom after Windows 10 upgrade

       

      The solutions 2 and 3 don't work for me and, as there is no MSVCR120.dll error in my event viewer, I haven't tried the solution 1.

       

      I have also tried to rename the "Lightroom Catalog Previews.lrdata" folder (without effect).

      Changing the location of the Lightroom folder does not work (it seems that I can't select another catalog than that located at C:\Users\XXX\Pictures\Lightroom).

       

      Thanks in advance for your help.
