Have you tried posting in the Lightroom forum?
i thought that this was the forum..lol
now everytime i import raw files to my lightroom is havin a
! next to the image saying need to update to 2010 but i had 2
010 set up why is making me do it again?
I can't answer specifically for Lightroom, as I don't have it, but I can answer in general terms that make sense in the context that Camera Raw and Lightroom's converter have a lot in common...
Are you opening images that you once opened before using older software, or the 2003 process in the modern software? How you opened them is stored and the software will make an attempt to open your image the same way it did before. In order to revert all images to the new 2010 process by default you'll have to either set them to do so during the conversion process this time, or delete the stored raw conversion data, either by removing the sidecar .xmp files or deleting the central database, depending on how you have things configured.
