Anybody having problems with LR 3 failing to Launch??
I get “Lightroom Opening Catalog: P627089.ORF:Ircat” Also, get the window stating that Lightroom has experienced a problem and has to close. The P627089.ORF is a RAW image photo file from my Olympus E PL-1.
I've deinstalled, reinstalled, downloaded and insstalled again - nothing working.
