Lightroom 4.3 Problem - Hope you can help
I have been using Lightroom 4.1 satisfactorily, although slowly, on my computer for some time.
Deciding to update to version 4.3 I downloaded the "Lightroom_4_LS11_win_4_3.exe" (790,011 KB) from the Adobe Web Site. I cannot get it to load - the wheel symbol runs for a few seconds after I double click the file and then stops. I have tried "Run as Administrator" and "Open" from the right click option list - the same happens. I have downloaded the file 3 times and none of them will install Lightroom 4.3.
Has anyone had a problem getting the program to install? Did you solve it and how ?
Any help would be appreciated.
My O/S is Windows Vista SP2 Home Premium Edition and the systems meets the minimum requirements, and exceeds it. And Lightroom 4.1 runs OK.
Have you disabled all antivirus, spyware checkers, etc? Are you allowing the default settings for install? I have installed certain software that would not proceed until I had disabled my antivirus software.
By the way, I am sure you have heard it a million times but I am going to say it again. Upgrade to Win7 while you still can.
Have you tried R-Clicking on the "Lightroom_4_LS11_win_4_3.exe" file to bring up the Menu, then select properties-- the file size should be 771 MB (808,970,536 bytes).
What you may find is that the file isn't the right size, because possibly it didn't download correctly?
What's more likely is when you R-Click on the "Lightroom_4_LS11_win_4_3.exe" file, bring up the Menu and select properties you may find that you need to L-Click on the Unblock Button to Unblock the file.
After that, the file should run and create the Installation Program.
You are my Hero !!!
Your " Unblock " suggestion was spot on. The program loaded like a dream after following your advise. How wonderful.
Hope that you have the lovely Christmas that you truly deserve.
I had the same problem and it took a call to tech support to discover the "unblock" setting. I suggested that this not a common (to me) choice and should be in the directions and website for downloading and updating. Adobe should have realized this up front.
