    Unable to open a Lightroom catalog

    thierryo62191675

      Hello,

       

      I moved catalogs from a computer running Windows 8 to a computer running windows 10 and I can’t open my catalogs.

      Here is the error message that Lightroom displays:

       

      “ Ligthroom can’t use the catalog named “Lightroom photos xxxx” because it is not recordable and can’t be opened. Access rights are probably insufficient or other application Lightroom uses the catalog. Try to solve the problem or select another catalog.”

       

      I tried to select another catalog and that does not work either. I specify that I am administrator of my computer.

       

      If I drop the catalog on the desktop I can open it normally. Then I save the catalog on another disk but when I want to open the catalog again from this location it does not work and Lightroom displays the same error message.

       

      Thank you for your help.

      Thierry
