  • Lightroom: LR4 will not open - error unexpected opening catalog

    I can't open LR4. I get an "unexpected error opening catalog. The catalog cannot be opened due to an unexpected error. "This has happened after the failure of an update to WIN7.  He restored the system to a previous version.  In doing so, he also returned LR4.2 to LR4.1.  I've seen other threads can open a different catalog, or create a new one.  The problem is that, once I go to "Choose a different catalog", I get the windows to the screen where I can choose my backup.  I select the backup catalog and click on 'open '.  The window disappears, but the window "Select a catalog" underlying LR shows still 1 catalog to open... my original catalogue.  The backup does not appear in the list.  (The backup is not a network drive, and it is not marked as read).

    I then try 'create a new catalog', get the Windows screen, enter a new name and click "Save".  The same thing happens.  The Windows screen goes away and the window "Select a catalog" LR still shows the catalog of moose in the list.  So, I can not create or choose a different catalog.  I'm doing something wrong?

    Thank you.

  • version 24.6.0 installed last night - now I can't sign. no explanation.

    This morning when I grew up Thunderbird, it wouldn't connect to the internet. I was able to get to my email via the web interface and my browsers are all working well. I discovered that night last version of Thunderbird installed 24.6.0 after I signed, so apparently it has something to do with the reason why I can't connect now. My husband is a computer geek and looked at everything and does not know why it does not work.

    Please confirm that your antivirus software does not block Thunderbird. It must be on "allow".
    I know that there were occasions when Thunderbird updates and anti-virus software think that it is a completely new program.

  • No history except the 2 update, I installed last night. What is a registry error?.

    When I go to windows update it tells me that no update was already installed. The update history page is white, except for the 2 updates, I installed last night. Update said earlier I have all the updates that are installed and there is no new update. I went to the windows update log in windows system 32 file and it lists all of my updates to the current, but will not display the update on the page history. I have hundreds of updates in the win sys. 32 journal update.

    Hi MrPeanut,

    Welcome to the Microsoft answers site.

    This problem can occur because the device sends data of strength of signal for Windows. These data can be interpreted as input device real, such as the movement of the mouse, button activity or strikes. Therefore, this transmission can prevent Windows mode 'sleep'. Windows must enter "sleep" mode to activate the screen saver.

    I suggest that you update the drivers for all devices on the computer entry. You can update the drivers from Device Manager and check.

    See the link for update drivers: update a hardware driver that is not working properly: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Update-a-driver-for-hardware-that-isn ' t-work-good

    If the problem persists, then I suggest that you uninstall the update from Add/Remove programs in the control panel.

    Now, download you the link that resets the update reset Windows components from the following link: How to reset the Windows Update components?: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

    Now start you the Windows updates and check.
