This issue happens when the photo library isn't accessible.

That the said library needs to be refresh

-Go to windows explorer (press Windows key + E )

-Go to Libraries

-Please delete all folders namely pictures, documents, music and documents.

-Once deleted do a right click on Libraries folder then choose restore default libraries.

there are two things you can do: The most straightforward is to turn UAC off, reboot, and you're done (unless you do not want UAC off). Another option, which works but seems to have a lag in it, is to "Take Ownership" of the .exe file in the program folder. I may not be doing things right with the ownership settings, so any other feedback here would be appreciated.
Under administrative mode or with UAC turned off, the program loads in 1-2 seconds. With the "Take Ownership" method, the program opens in 20-30 seconds for me. I tried taking ownership several times, but I kept getting the noted lag to load the program.
