Ligtroom needs to be closed when the update is installed.
And your work is saved automatically to the catalog without any action on your part, so just close Lightroom.
Thanks for your quick reply. If Lightroom is closed, how do I install the update? should I go to the Lightroom website, find the update and download it?
Again, thanks for your help!
Lightroom has to be closed when an update is installed - you can't update a program when it is running.
The update will be downloaded and installed after you have closed Lightroom. (it may take a few minutes)
If it doesn't work, you download the 6.9 update from here: Download Photoshop Lightroom
Many thanks, Per, problem solved!
