    Please do the following to get Luminar up and running:

    1. Make sure Luminar is closed.
    2. Locate your Luminar Catalog folder. The default location is C:\Users\%username%\Pictures\. If you specified a custom location for your catalog, search your custom location.
    3. Rename the Luminar Catalog folder. Choose any name you like. Don't remove this folder.
    4. Press the Windows logo key + R.
    5. Type %appdata%\Luminar 4 in the dialog box that opens and press Enter on your keyboard.
    6. Next, remove all the contents in Luminar 4 folder you opened in Step 3. Please note that this will remove your user looks, so back up the folder into the safe location before removing it if necessary. You can then put your looks back later. 
    7. Start Luminar 4. It will ask you to complete the initial setup. While performing the setup, change the default location of Luminar Catalog. Please try to choose the folder that you haven't used (please make sure to select the one that is located on the internal HD). Moreover, please try adding a small folder with photos first. 
      You'll be able to add more folders via File > Add Folder with Images.
