The only thing I can suggest is to reinstall LR from here.
Reinstall the Base program and the .8 update then try to open it. You will have to Sign in and enter the serial number, or numbers if LR 6 is the upgrade version, again.
So here's an update on my laptop under the help file menu I am not signed in and I only sign in when I want to check for updates.
but on my desktop I am signed in but if I sign out of LR and quit and then open LR again I have to sign in. I don't have to do that with my laptop?
Or here's what it says on the desktop
if you sign out you deactivate your license
On the lap top it's in sign in stand by mode. weather online or not
There is no reason to sign out on either except to Deactivate so you can move the program to another computer.. I have no idea what Sign in stand by mode is. Never heard of it.
But that might have something to do with LR Mobile which LR 6 can't use anyway.
I have the subscription base version so I never sign out

The simple solution is to just stay signed in.
but it’s weird how how one the laptop I can work signed off but on my desktop I have to work signed in.
I'm not your mom. I can't tell you why you have to work signed in. I'm using Lightroom CC, and I stay signed in constantly. No need to sign out.
It was supposed to say thanks Jim
