    Hi Gary,

    We'd be grateful if you provide us with the event logs:

    1. Reproduce the issue. 
    2. Press the Windows logo key + R.
    3. Type eventvwr in the dialog box that opens and hit Enter on your keyboard.
    4. In the window that opens click the triangle next to Windows Logs on the left. A directory tree should open.
    5. Click Application in the directory tree. 
    6. In the main part of the window find the two topmost entries marked with Error named Application Error and .NET Runtime.
    7. Hold CTRL and click your left mouse button on each entry to select them both.
    8. Right-click on any of the two selected entries and click Save Selected Events.
    9. Name the file, save it, and attach it to your support request via https://skylum.com/support

    Also have this as an issue.  However, it throws a kernelbase.dll error rather than a .Net one.

    Thanks Katherine.  I did do, and am awaiting instruction.  Day off today, so I'll probably tinker with it as well.

    Cut and paste from support is:

     

    1. Make sure Luminar is closed.
    2. Locate your Luminar Neo 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 Neo Catalog folder. Choose any name you like.

    Try to launch Luminar Neo and create a new catalog. If you're able to load the app, please, try the following steps:

    1. Make sure Luminar Neo is closed.
    2. Navigate to where your previous catalog is stored.
    3. Locate the Backups folder in the catalog and open it.
    4. In the Backups folder, select a file that has been created prior to when you encountered the issue with the library and copy the file somewhere where you can easily access it.
    5. Rename the file you just copied by adding the following after the file name (omit quotes): '.luminarneo'.
    6. Start Luminar Neo.
    7. Click Luminar Neo >File > Catalog > Open > point Luminar to the file from Step 5.

    On my install, for some reason, Microsoft have moved the "Pictures" area to the "One Drive" location, so the c:\users\... area is empty.   I followed the rest of the instructions above and it worked.

    This was emailed to me, so it's support's mail instructions, not from the web (yet). :)
