I'd redo the install to check.
Did 3.6 even support camera or lens profiles? I can't remember as it is so long ago.
It does. I checked..
Thank you both for taking the time to reply.
I had done a reinstall twice but no profiles.
I gave it another shot ... it worked doesn't make any sense to me
but I have profiles ... so I'm happy
I did remove Adobe Air and reinstall maybe that helped.
I had a copy of LR3.6 ( no profiles either )
on another HD (belt and suspenders) but it was functional.
I reinstalled it ... sadly it just hung I had to force quit it
I'm happy it running but frustrated I don't understand why it does or doesn't
