I thought I would start a new catalog, to see if there was something incompatible or wrong with my previous library, however that too crashes. I can import about 2-3,000 photos and then each and every time I go to import a new folder of images -- bam.
I've tried importing small batches, also crashes.
Macbook Pro (13-inch, mid 2012) OS Sierra 10.12.6
2.9 Ghz Intel Core i7
8 GB 1600 Mhz DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 video card
All photos stored on external hard drive (Western Digital, 4 TB)
I have been submitting the error reports continuously since it started via the crash report button.
I have uninstalled the app and reinstalled it. I've then rebooted the computer.
Currently, I can import small batches of files. Any folder / import with > 4000 images will crash. I've been trying to import 50000 images into a new Catalog since 8 am CST this morning. It's now 2 pm CST and I'm only about half way done.
Please let me know if you need further information.
I downloaded LR Classic CC When I launched it for the first time it was unable to load my catalog. I had the error message, "Lightroom couldn't update the format of its catalog file because the file appears to be damaged"
I then opened LR 2015 which loaded the catalog with no problem reported. I then successfully backed up the catalog to a new location. I then tried to open this catalog in LR Classic CC but had the same error message as above.

The fact that this problem seems inconsistent is extremely frustrating. I am running the latest version of High Sierra, with 8Gb RAM, 2.4Ghz i5 processor.
Lightroom Classic CC 7.2 is now available!
Edit: Sorry about that - this issue is fixed for macOS with today's Lightroom Classic CC 7.2. We're still working on fixes for Windows.
Please get to the bottom of this, and reset the status of this to "not at all fixed, and we have no idea what to do about it. Sorry that you paid for stuff you can't use!"
This is the error I got...
