You need to check the minimum system requirements for Lightroom CC 2015 and check if it's compatible with your machine or not?
Also, you can refer the below tutorial to import your Photoshop element's catalog to Lightroom.
Let us know if that helps.
Mohit -- Thanks for taking the time to answer, but your suggestions are the
most basic things to check, and the first things I checked, when I
originally had the problem over a month ago. The fact that the Elements
import process dies without any messages or error handling means there is a
high probability that there is a problem with your software.
I ended up loading the catalog manually by first using the "save metadata
to file" option in Elements for all 37,000+ pictures, then importing them
into Lightroom. I had to recreate all the tags for my video files in
So I don't need any more help at this point since I already completed the
time consuming, manual process to load my catalog. I suspect you still
have a problem with your software. If you decide to investigate this
further, a clue I can give you is that I had several file formats that were
supported by Elements that would not import into Lightroom. Possibly the
Lightroom process just died when it encountered these files. There were
approximately 100 files out of the 37,000+ that worked perfectly in
Elements that I was not able to load into Lightroom.
