Hi folks, I'm stumped. I opened LR CC today and just have a blue spinning circle - otherwise LR CC is empty - no photos despite many in LR mobile and web. I reset preferences, restarted, rebooted, signed out, deleted all cloud data, reinstalled, signed out of the CC app (not necessarily in this order), with no luck.

Thank you.

A new update for LrCC was just posted this evening. Give it a try. It may help with this issue.

Problem solved - a second reinstall and restart did the trick.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC spinning circle on launch.

Started trial of Lightroom CC.  Everything I've tried, the app opens and just has a spinning circle in the middle.  Says I'm signed in, but the 'manage account' section doesn't have my account information.  Signing out and back in doesn't fix it, uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't fix it, firewall settings aren't changing anything.

Nearly gave up on Lightroom CC, then I installed on my wife's computer.  Worked first try.  Looks like some nice software, if I can get it to work on my computer.

My problem is not solved and merging my issue with a solution that doesn't solve my problem isn't helping.  Does anyone know a fix for this?

Hi Nathan,

It may be an authentication issue. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Creative Cloud desktop app? Also, make sure you are not blocked by a Firewall.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled six different times with no luck.  Are there any firewall guidelines I can use to check my system with?

I'm not sure what to tell you. You could try temporarily disabling the firewall to see if that is the issue,

Can't disable the firewall on a company owned computer, even though I have admin rights to install software.  If I knew what ports I was looking for, I could investigate further.
Meanwhile, still no luck getting the software to work.  And my problem is still listed on a "solved" thread dealing with a completely different issue.
