Lightroom: Crashes While Setting Up New Catalog

If I open LR, the previous catalog opens, that part works. When I make a new catalog for a new shoot, the catalog is created but then the software crashes immediately. If I double click on the lrcat file that I just created to start LR up, after the program opens it crashes.

I'm on an iMac running El Capitan working on my local drive not an external.

Do you have any 3rd party plug-ins installed for Lightroom? It has become known to us that some malformed 3rd party plug-ins might cause Lr to crash. SeeĀ Please talk to the respective vendors for updates.
