    Lightroom crashed and turned into "expired Beta version".

    When importing from a memory card previously imported in order to restore a few photos accidently erased, Lightroom crashed.
    When trying to restart Lightroom this dialog box come up:
    "Warning. This Beta version has expired. The application will now quit."
    It is a legitimate version upgraded to 3.4 which now has disappeared.
    Restarting the PC is tried without success.
    Should I try to reinstall Lightroom? Is the catalog lost?

    Hi dippdipp, welcome to the forum.

    This sounds quite bizarre. Could you open the Control Panel and call up the Add/Remove Programs display and post a screenshot of the section that contains the Adobe products? Looking to see what your system thinks is installed.

    For some reason Lightroom or parts of it must have uninstalled itself.
    I reinstalled the program and downloaded the latest upgrade, and now everything is working ok. Even the catalog is ok.

    I don't know why this could happen, but I am so happy this didn't give me more trouble.

    Thanks.

    John

    Well, that was going to be my recommendation anyway, but you beat me to it!

    Glad it's sorted!
