Ed Endicott Posted July 5, 2013 Share Posted July 5, 2013 Wanted to share my experience and caution...Adobe released an update for Lightroom 4. This update is supposed to change the version from 4.4 to 4.4.1 and is to provide additional raw support for new cameras as well as improve the cloning functionality. I tried to update Lightroom 4 and it disappeared. No more shortcuts. I went to the folder where Lightroom 4 resides and tried to launch the application. An error message indicated that a .dll file was missing. I rolled back my computer to reflect programs prior to the update. I rebooted the computer. Once complete, I tried to launch Lightroom - it could not find my image catalog. I tried to launch a backup of my image catalog and it could not launch it. I tried to create a new catalog and Lightroom could not do it. I tried to install Lightroom 4 again and got all the same results. I went to the Adobe website and downloaded the trial version of Lightroom 5. I had no issues installing the software and updating the Lightroom 4 catalog. Given the antics Adobe has been playing with relation to the software license, I'm a little disappointed here. I ended up having to upgrade to Lightroom 5 despite not wanting to. I wanted to pass along the heads up of what *might* happen if you try to apply this update. Cheers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
