one of you has a suggestion that works.
I have been joyfully playing with LL since the windows version was released. I was delighted for the most part, and 4.1 was finally stable.
The library was a bit messed up. So, I deleted it. I then uninstalled 4.1, deleted all my lightroom directories and rebooted. I reinstalled Lightroom 4.1.
The install was fine, the readme file came up and then nothing happened.
I checked the Event Viewer - "Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC could not be found and Last Error was The referenced assembly is not installed on your system." The Source was "SidebySide". Whatever that is. and "Generate Activation Context failed for C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom\Microsoft.VC80.MFC\MFC80U.DLL. Reference error message: The operation completed successfully."
I don't have a clue what any of this means... and I wonder why I couldn't re-install the application.
If anyone has any idea, I should be grateful to hear.
