I have tried numerous times to boot my latest version of Lightroom Classic and it will simply not fully load, and gets stick on Loading Preferences repeatedly. Have cleared to preference file numerous times as well as Uninstalling and Reinstalling. Is this a known issue? Does anyone know of any other potential preferences or conflicts that I should address? Could my computer or GPU possibly not be able to run the App?
I deleted the preference file within my library/preferences folder multiple times, restarted each time, then tried uninstalling and reinstalling, including installing the most recent previous versions with no luck.
As a stopgap, I have now installed Lightroom Classic Version 10.4 and it appears to be working with my system, so I am wondering what I need to do to get 11.x versions working. Gonna be disappointed if it is a GPU issue or anything that requires us to invest in a new computer at this point. Any insight would be appreciated from the community.
