I have a genuine version of Lightroom 3 which I have been using quite happily since I bought it. However when I opened it up yesterday I got the message ' The Lightroom Catalog 'Name of catalog' cannot be opened because another application already has it open. Quit the other copy of Lightroom before trying to launch.'
I haven't got another copy of lightroom open but I cannot get into the default catalog that I have been using. I have updated a previous catalog but this does not show me what has been processed.
How do I find out where the other application is and quit it so that I can use the version of the catalog that I have been working on for a number of months?

Does This Help ?
i get this - log off - log on - uusually sorts it and that is LR4 or Beta LR5
Thanks very much Jeff, worked a treat and everything back to normal, much obliged
I had something similar a few weeks ago and the tip above would have been useful. I had assumed that the catalogue had not closed properly so did not think that I could easily recover. However, I regularly back up the catalogue on another computer and just reverted to the backup. It is certainly well worth regularly saving a backup of the catalogue as well as the images.
