Opening questions about Mac Catalog: "error unexpected opening catalog."

I use OS x Yosemite 10.10.5 with Lightroom 6. Everything worked fine, but now it displays "error unexpected opening catalog." I tried to create a catalog, it always shows error. Now all files in light gray that seems like I can't open at all.

I installed another copy on Windows 7 today, why has this problem of catalog? I was told that I can use on both machines at least.

Help, please. This is the type of emergency.



Hi Geoff, I restore my mac time machine. Now my LR works very well. Because of the urgent things, I can't wait any longer. Please close this ticket. If this happen again. I'll ask again for your help. Thanks anyway.

So, followed by all as should be. The prompt update from apple was quick time, iTunes and airport, I checked all and then updated. Then I loaded office 2010 and obtained throughout the process from the Microsoft site. On the last part of the installation, the installation failed due to a mistake of hanging iTunes.

  • Very simple question about Mac and find out which version of the player

    Hi, really quick here for Mac or Mac users familiar question: How can I find which version of Reader is installed on a Mac? It should be of Mac OSX. I'm just so incompatible Mac (and the guy using it is not fine with it) and I don't know where to look?

    Thanks a bundle

    Mac does not come with Adobe Reader, they come with a program called Preview. The best way to know which version is on a given computer is to ask the owner! If the owner does not know that they can select the file and then on the file menu or by typing the command - I they can activate the command read information that will produce a window with the version information and much more.

  • Question about mac OS Sierra

    I have a MacBook Pro for mid-2012.  I bought it in 2015 because, in my case, I wanted the terabyte of hard disk, and it worked perfectly for what I wanted to.  I tried to decide if it would be useful to upgrade to Sierra.  From what I see, the main features are Siri, updated Messenger to level, being able to connect using the Apple Watch and the ability to access your desktop from your phone because everything is stored in iCloud.  To really get the feature for Sierra, I should have the same amount of space iCloud I pay for every month?  I think this through properly?

    What do you mean by: "I should have the same amount of space iCloud I pay for every month? '?

    In addition, your Mac does not support Apple Watch unlock since yo need a Mac 2013 or later version

  • General questions about errors in eventvwr


    I have a general question about some failed modules are stored in the Windows Event Viewer.

    An error leading to the crashes some applications that I've seen several times now when supporting computer problems is something like this:
    (Windows error reporting) Fault bucket, Type 0, name of the event: PCA2, (...) P1: application.exe, (...)

    I wonder what this 'PCA2. Which is a kind of module Windows handles tasks such as allocating memory or smth. Like this? What could be the cause of these errors (physical memory problems / corrupt swap file / insufficient rights?)

    Same Question for the application falls down because of "kernelbase.dll" as in:
    (Application error) Failing application: application.exe, Version:, (...) Failed module: KERNELBASE.dll, Version: 6.1.7601.18015, (...) Path of the failing module: C:\Windows\syswow64\KERNELBASE.dll (...)

    What is the .dll file and what could possibly cause kernelbase.dll Fault?

    The application can be a bit buggy, but I wonder what could possibly cause these accidents and if there is a way to fix these problems - or what dev did wrong.

    The two errors occur mainly on x 64 systems - especially Windows 7/vista

    Kind regards

    With application errors, the application is called everything first and the module he collaborated with is named second. Normally you should try to reinstall the application if you see not to repeat the mistakes. If this does not work, you go to the forum on the application to see if other users see the same error. There may be a bug in the application.

    The observer of the Application event log contains Information reports (event ID: 1001) for errors where the details were sent to Microsoft for review. You will find that there are corresponding to the event ID: 1000 reports errors, either in the system or Application logs. These reports are also included in the center of the Action. Center type action in the area of research above the Start button and press ENTER. Click on the arrow pointing downwards to the right of Maintenance, and then click view reliability history. The errors reported are the Red orbs with a white cross. You can search for solutions to problems, but occasionally you get a significant response from Microsoft.

    I can't tell you what it means PCA2. Google did not find a significant result. The reports themselves are not unintelligible, although I have never tried to understand the meaning of a particular report. I have extracted what, in my view, is a starting point of two reports:
    Event name: PCA2 = P1: motherboard_utility_onoffchargesetup.exe P2:

    Event name: PCA2 = P1: setup.exe P2:

    You have the app in the boredom and the version of the file. These details have been extracted a file of information system to a computer with a card mother Gigabyte. So, you see I have a starting point, if I wanted to determine the cause of a failure.

    I will say before you go dive deep into each event ID: 1001 report that many are not easy to even begin to understand. However, they can provide useful clues.

    KERNELBASE.dll is likely to be the module with which the application works. You need to focus on the application.  KERNELBASE is probably preceded by P3 or P4 in the report?

  • A few questions about installing Windows on a Mac

    Hello world.

    I'm considering installing Windows on my 2006 iMac. I have a few questions I was hoping you might be able to help me with that. I know that this machine will run Windows 7 or 8, in terms of system resources, but probably doesn't have the RAM for 10.

    The girl has reached Apple Obsolescence and no longer can be upgraded to newer versions of Mac OS. Unfortunately, this also means that she can not get the latest version of iTunes and don't talk to my phone. But she still my entire library of music.

    I know that used at least iTunes is available on Windows, but I seem to remember that they took it. Y at - it an option to put my iTunes music on an iPhone 6 in a Windows environment? I don't mind if I need to convert files or otherwise work for her. I have just a few old out-of-print stuff that I really miss being able to listen to anywhere other than my office.

    I'm pretty much stuck with versions before 10, due to the RAM thing. Honestly, I haven't used Windows since around 1998, with the exception of a terminal XP at work, so I don't know much about it. Any recommendation on which version is the best? And I can buy a copy online directly from Microsoft?

    If I would be better off buying a new laptop for very cheap, it is also a possibility. But my Mac still works well, despite not being not supported for updates, and I hate wasting perfectly good material. I just don't have the money for another Mac right now.

  • about syntax error unexpected token ' (')

    I wrote a script that having several select statement table of multiples. When I run this script on solaris server it gives error note "about syntax error unexpected token ' ('". ")" can I get an example, how do I write this script. I want xml output which should be send to my email_id

    You try to run the script in your shell?
    If so, you must connect to sqlplus or your client before running select it, as in:

    Create a file containing the queue and select

    spool /tmp/script_output.xml
    spool off

    now the shell script should be something like:

    #! /usr/bin/ksh
    # Auth MY_Name
    # Script for SCRIPT_NAME
    sqlplus user/[email protected] @mysql.sql
    #echo "script_name" | mail -s "script_name" [email protected]
    mail -s "script_name" [email protected]< script_output.xml
    exit 0;

    Oh - and check your selection works in sqlplus first...

  • Where and how do I ask questions about Email?

    The Commission opening thingy is complicated, I have trouble finding my way around it.  I don't know where or how questions about email.  Is there an easier way than trawling through all these icons?  Like a list or something - as you get on all other forums on the internet?

    It would be a good starting point: Mac mini

    Or the appropriate under MAC Os and system software section.

  • Question about support for LabVIEW DLLS and Unicode


    I have a question about LabVIEW and DLL functions calls.

    I use a DLL (sorry, I can't share it) that was written in C. It was written to support Unicode and non-Unicode function calls.

    The Unicode function is valid, then FunctionNameW is called if FunctionNameA is called.

    I am building a few VI to access the library. I have the regular functions of FunctionNameA work.

    My question is, does LabVIEW support versions of function FunctionNameW Unicode, and if so is it necessary Although LabVIEW is already working with the standard function call?

    Am I being redundant or what should I build in Unicode support?

    The first time I tried to test the Unicode functions, I had an error, and I guess this is a system setting.

    Thank you for your time in advance.

    DB_IQ wrote:

    I don't think I have TO implement the Unicode, but I want if I can.

    For what I do, I think almost it is not serious. But I wanted to know if it could be used.

    The short answer is "Yes, you can do it."  However, it may open a new Pandora's box.  If you're not careful, problems and complications that can still spread to other projects that are not using Unicode!  It is better not to summon this monster unless there is absolutely no other way to do the job.

  • HTML (Web), I have a question about the models.

    Hello CC animate developers.

    New features are really good.

    HTML (Web), I have a question about the models.

    <! DOCTYPE html >

    < html >

    < head >

    < meta charset = "UTF-8" >

    < title > $TITLE < /title >

    < meta name = "ad.size" content ="width = $WT, height = $HT" > "



    var canvas, stage, exportRoot;

    function init() {}





    < script type = "text/javascript" >

    "clickTAG" var = "";

    < /script >

    < / head >

    < onload = "init (); the body"style =" background-color: #D4D4D4; " margin: 0px; ">

    < a href = " (window.clickTag)" >

    < div style = "position: absolute;" cursor: pointer; box-sizing: border-box; border: 1px solid #000000; overflow: hidden; height: $HTpx; Width: $WTpx; Background: rgb (255, 255, 255.0); "> < / div >

    < canvas id = "$CANVAS_ID" width = "$WT" height = "$HT" style = "background-color: $BG" > < / canvas >

    < /a >

    < / body >

    < / html >

    In the example above, the model;

    < Meta name = "ad.siz of" content = "width = $ WTI height = $ HT" > "


    < Div style = "position: absolute;" cursor: pointer; box-sizing: border-box; border: 1px solid # 000000; overflow: hidden; height: $HTpx; Width: $WTpx; Background: rgb (255, 255, 255.0); "> < / div >"

    I use labels. But these tags in the template and import, it gives an error does not occur.

    I think it was a mistake. I want to help in this regard.

    $ HT or Properties $WT , I get an error when I use elsewhere.

    I think I should be able to use anywhere I want.

    The same problem here - I worked around by some DRM models with different values of ad.size, but it's a solution quite short-seight

    Also - you are not able to create the model with transparent background by removing style = "" background-color: $BG ' as it also throws errors - is the only solution that I managed to get updates style = "background-color: $BG; background: none; ", but it's a really bad way of coding things.

    It would be really great to have freedom in changing patterns.
