I took the LR 2015.2 update. I'm on windows 8.1. Really terrible. I don't care at all for the over simplified import screen. The bigger problem though is it just doesn't work right. I can run LR once, then if I close it, I can not open it again until I reboot. Further investigation showed me that when I exit, it appears to close, however it remains running. After closing LR, I can go to Windows Task Manager and see it still listed in the running processes. If I select and end task, I can then go back and successfully launch LR again, one time. I tried turning off the show pictures option. This appeared to work, but it was only temporary. With that option turned off, I was able to open and close LR all I wanted. Then I imported some pictures. That broke the system and LR again remained in memory even with 'show pictures' not selected. This is repeatable, importing pictures leaves me unable to run LR again until i kill it in task manager.

I installed the 2015.2.1 update. It did nothing for me except waste my time. Same exact problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled clean and no change.

I have reverted to 2015.1.1 and all is good. I am not looking to troubleshoot at this time, just reporting my problems and hoping for a solid fix down the road. I've lost many hours already.
