I just wanted to pass along a possible fix to a strange bug I ran into.

I decided to get organzied and start importing my standalone catalogs into one large "Everything" Catalog.

Using File - Import from Catalog and selecting the LCat file I wanted - Lightroom would freeze as though it was waiting for me to do something.

The fix - with the Lightroom window visible - Hit the "Enter" key. .

Apparently there is a dialog that isn't visible that's holding up the whole process.

Here are the specs on my setup:

Intel Quad Core Q6600
Nvidia 9500 GT

Windows 7 64x Ultimate
Lightroom 3.4.1
CameraRAW 6.4.1
Adobe CS5 Master Collection - All updates installed as of 6/26/2011

No Antivirus or Malware software installed.
Hope that helps someone!

Great question - and it may be that you are on to something.

I actually have 2 video cards in this system - with 2 monitors and a projector connected.

I ran into this issue with the projector off and I believe disabled.

I'll look into that and see what I can find out.

Thank you for your reply!
