New to Lr. Watched the HDR tutorial and have the reference manual. I'm playing with the HDR option. Took 3 photos +/- 2 f stops and selected the 3 photos (RAW.NEF) in Lr 6.

Using the settings to merge the system works for about 2 minutes, progress bar completes, and I get the message "unable to merge the photos".

I sometimes get the same message. Not sure of the cause, by here's my additional problem:

When this message pops up, it never goes away. Even if I reduce the size of the Lightroom window and move it around on the screen, the message stays locked in the middle of my monitor. I have to close Lightroom and re-open it to get the message to go away.

I've attached a screenshot showing my Lightroom window made small and moved to the side, but the message (circled in orange) stays in the center of the screen.

Definitely a bug in the software. Running Windows 8.1 and Lightroom version: CC 2015.0.1 [ 1018573 ].

Adobe, is there a fix coming for this?
