Lost Lightroom 5.5 (and earlier versions). No matter how I try to re-install; downloading from website, Creative Cloud, or older LR 4 Disk, they All soon reach the point saying "object already exists". I cannot find any LR.exe files, or affiliated information. Trying everything I can think of for several days. Really appreciate any help. Thanks, Vern
