PLEASE make a troubleshooting article in the official support articles for Lightroom Classic, for the startup crashing problem appearing constantly.
The Lightroom Classic starts, it shows the pictures from the library, then it pops up the error reporting window - 0xc0000005 error.
I faced this already 4 times during a short time period of 3 months.
Everytime I did more hours of troubleshooting and googling what can cause this problem.
I started with GPU drivers, update, rollback, delete, clean, install. No result.
Then I went for Windows updates, installing the latest updates, then uninstall up to the last day, when LR CC worked. No result.
Then I did sfc /scannow system integrity check, it did not find any problems.
At the end I found out, that:
The ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD app is the reason. It is constantly getting corrupted.
Even it is corrupted, the app runs, does not show any problems, but after reinstalling it, the problem is solved with Lightroom. Interesting, that other Adobe apps are working well, just the Lightroom Classic is gettin f*cked by the Creative Cloud app corruption.
So, the problem is not GPU related, it is not GPU driver related, it is not hardware related, it is not software related, it is not windows update related. Just the self-manager, the Adobe Creative Cloud app.
Please, do a support article about this, so people are not getting angry as me, if this happens.
