I'm not a "Cloud" member. I just upgraded to Lightroom 6 from Lightroom 5. All was working well yesterday. Today Lightroom will not open (Windows 7). I see the logo photo over my Lightroom platform but nothing loads and I see "Lightroom not responding." I checked the catalogs and see that lrcat-Journal and lrcat-Lock have been created every time I try to open. I have a backup from the first day I upgraded, but Lightroom doesn't want to access it. Should I reinstall?

Well, is the catalogue (and the folder it is in) writable? Have you actually checked the permissions? Lightroom won't be spitting out the error just to tick you off, and - computer wizard or not - this sounds very much like something you'll have to fix at the OS level: it's probably nothing to do with Lightroom or those funny lads at Adobe.

It would help to know your OS.

  • TS4268 HI I started using imessage today to send SMSs from my computer, after downloading a the Lion OSX operating system. All was working well, but it seems now I can't SMS EVERYONE, just ppl who are registered with iMessage - is that right?

    Would be great to be able to message ANYONE through this app.  Also is it possible to receive messages sent to my phone number on the macbook?  That would be handy if I left my phone somewhere accidentally (which happens semi-regularly LOL) thanks

    Thanke Mende 1. 
    I'm not sure that Whatsapp is any good to me in that case unfortunately.  My goal is:
    to be able to send and receive SMSs (to everyone - not just those who also have imessage) on my macbook PRO (with OSX 10.8.2). 
    Basically I would love to use my macbook as an alternative to my iphone on occasion.  I would like to be able to leave my phone at work (and job home) and then when I get home log onto my macbook and find out if anyone has SMS-ed me=.  Maybe not possible but I thought with iClould and all this other device-compatablity there might/must be a way??
    Happy NEw Year and thanks for your help so far, and in advance for any further advice.

  • My phone was working fine. Today it became de-activated. I am getting the message that it needs to be activated and when I try to it says the server is busy, try again. I still have my wallpaper and it accepts my password and is on our wifi. What do I do.

    My iphone is no longer activated, It worked for three weeks. I can't get the server to work. On hold with Verizon for almost an hour and half and got disconnected.

    You have a bit of a mess on your hands, but you can try doing this:
    Download the iOS 6 update (ipsw) file to your computer from here: http://osxdaily.com/2012/09/19/ios-6-ipsw-direct-download-links/, being careful to download the version for your model.
    Put your phone in DFU mode, as explained here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2648467?threadID=2648467&tstart=0
    Restore you phone in iTunes using the ipsw file you downloaded in step 1, as described here: http://osxdaily.com/2010/11/23/how-to-use-ipsw-files/.
    If you get a 1014, 1013, 1638 or 3194 error, you access to Apple's servers is being blocked by your Hosts file.  You'll have to edit your Hosts file to remove this block, then try restoring again.  You can use Google to find out how to do this.

  • After installing 10.9.5 I keep getting "Application Not Responding" for iMovie, Preview, Elements 10, Quicktime. Also my external drive showing up as camera on in iMovie. I do not have time machine. All was working well before! Processor  2.5GHz i5

    iMac 2.5 GHz
    Intel Core i5
    4GB Memory

    I have a similar problem.
    Moreover, as my external drive is split in 2 for (a) regular storage // (b) time machine usage, I can see in the Finder that I can connect to the (a) regular storage part and use it normally (image 1).
    And I cannot connect to the backup part in Finder , nor see it in Disk Utility, nor use it in Time Machine (although it's listed in the Time Machine preferences, image 2), as it does not connect (image 3).
    Can somebody help?

    I have I-phone 4S - Since updating to IOS 6, when at home with Wi-Fi network with my I Phone connection is not responding sometimes – for example if I want to check my G-mail it shows loading but nothing happens and after few minutes it displays “Cannot Get Mail” – The mail server “imap.gmail.com is not responding, Verify that you have entered the correct account info in mail settings
    Other times the Wi-Fi connection works fine and it check e-mail or other within few seconds. The connection problems seems to be intermitted
    This issue never happened before with IOS 5 since I bought the new phone in Oct 2011.

    We suffered the imap.gmail.com server problem After an IoS 6 upgrade. The simple solution is to delete the problem account, shut down the iPad, start up again and reenter the account. Everything comes back normally. Good Luck everyone!

  • Updated to ios 6 and now when i go to the app store and try to check out my purchased it try to load the information but after about 20-25 seconds nothing loads and the app crashes. Im not sure if its because i have at least 600 apps in the cloud.

    Have you tried connecting it to your computer and restoring the iPod via iTunes?
    If iTunes does not see the iPod try placing the iPod in recovery mode and then restoring the iPod.  For recovery mode see:

    This screenshot shows which previous versions of iPhoto are compatible with Mavericks.  It also indicates which versions qualify for a free upgradeto iPhoto 9.5.1 and which require a purchase:
    Note 1:  every day more users are reporting problems with iPhoto 8.1.2 so I've included it in the non compatible category.
    Note 2:  If your previous version of iPhoto was iPhoto 7 (08) or earlier you'll need to download and run the iPhoto Library Upgrader 1.1 application on the library before opening it with iPhoto 9.5.1

    A possible cause is security software (firewall,anti-virus) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

    Saw this solution on another post about an iPad in a school environment. Might work on your iPad so you won't lose everything.

    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just cancelling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.

  • Remote location, 7kbs d'load speed, 10 days to d'load Lion, only software updates are through the App Store. Why can't we d'load and install outside the Cloud anymore? Some of us can't use the cloud.

    Remote location, 7kbs d'load speed, 10 days to d'load Lion, only software updates are through the App Store. Why can't we d'load and install outside the Cloud anymore? Some of us can't use the cloud and never will be able to.

    That is true - I apologize for not being specific - what I was mainly referring to is iLife applications. I have a notice on the App Store that says 3 apps need updates, I look at the apps and they are huge so since my connection is so slow I use my work connection and d'load the files from support to my Windows machine and carry them home, once d'loaded my MacAir states it cannot install, the update must come from the App Store.
    I do the same thing for large Leopard and Lion files and I can install them without error, it is just the App Store files that the system stops.

    I should add that this has never been Jailbroken. I keep reading that a lot of times this is the case for a jail broken phone.
    I have also gone through the not very helpfull steps on apples site to fix this.. It is not a security issue since i dont have an antivirus or any 3rd party software for my computer.

    I just received a iPod Touch 5th generation for xmas and it acts like it is locked, when you slide the slider it says unlock button and nothing happens.  Can't slide the power off either.  It tells you the time, unlock button, power off button but nothing happens.  Voice just tells you the unlock button, time, poweroff button.
    Please help also itunes says I need to enter on iPod the passcode to reset to factory.  I can't get it open to enter passcode, slider doesn't work.  It is one day old and this happen xmas afternoon.  PLEASE Help someone

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.
