Just reinstalled creative cloud and lightroom on my computer. we have done a system upgrade and I have had lightroom on this computer before and it worked great. WE have upgraded the system to Windows 10 and lightroom still won't work. I have been reading troubleshooting blogs for over a week now and have tried numerous things. I have uninstalled and reinstalled lightroom probably 10 times. I have signed in and out of creative cloud 2758905382 times. I have deleted all associated old files from previous versions of lightroom. I have the latest up to date driver. At first I couldn't develop a picture. It would crash when I would copy settings. Then it started crashing after I woudl click to edit the next picture. Then I deleted a bunch of things and then it wouldn't import images (which I discovered was apparently because I had my printer plugged in??). Resolved the import issue but still can only edit one photo at a time and then it crashes. I used a Nikon d7100 with RAW files. Please help - I am beyond frustrated and have a very unhappy bride.
I was having a very similar issue and deactivating GPU acceleration seems to have fixed it for me.
I have the same problem .Isntalled windows 10 and lightroom crashes in the develop mode almost direct. When I try to deactivated the GPU acceleration it crashes as well. What should i do?
Deactivate the GPU acceleration while LR is not running:
Navigate to %appdata%\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs and change the following line:
useAutoBahn = true,
to the following
useAutoBahn = false,
Save and close and launch Lightroom 6 again
Hi, thanks for the fast respons. When you go back to driver 14.4 (AMD 7600HD) the problem seemed to be solved. It even supports GPU acceleration with this older driver.
For the older driver: Previous
Hope Lightroom will work without any bypass in the near future.
I'm not familiar with coding. How do I "navigate" to that line to make the changes?
Just open the Windows (file) explorer and copy and paste the following line in the navigation bar, and press Enter:
Then edit the file named "Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs" with the Notepad and search for useAutoBahn.
Hope this helps.
BTW, it worked for me, it should be marked as answer.
I was about to throw my computer in the trash because of this issue. I got so far as to expand my memory from 4gb to 12 gb thinking my upgrade from LR3 to LR6 was way too much for my computer. You sir, made my day.
Thank you!!!! Thank you!!!! Thank you!!!!
I am really suffering problem with Lightroom cc update 2015 6.1 & Camera Raw 9.6.1 which came June or July update from adobe. I use my GPU just for editing photos which is Nvidia Gtx 950, well my system is working great without any problem with the GPU but only the lightroom & camera raw freezing images ( NEF or TIFF) whenever I am going to develop. I tried all the stuffs like uninstalling both PS & Lightroom , reinstalling, reinstalling graphics driver etc. In the PS , there is no problem but only problem happening in Camera Raw & Lightroom. If I uncheck the option "use graphics processor" on both application everything working fine but a bit slow. My question is why this is happening? I had Gtx 630 previously which was lower end GPU everything was working good. So why the hell I upgraded my gpu ? for better rendering obviously. I figured out My GPU is working fine enough (tested) but there is a bug in these package of software. My notebook also runs on gtx 950m & there is no glitch or bug, the same software package installed like desktop. I dont want to downgrade my Camera raw, because I saw system information on Camera raw & Lightroom. Both of them says everything is passed like open gl 4.4 etc. Then where is the glitch? Why this is happening only on desktop gpu not the notebook? I also read the adobe forum & there are thousands of people facing the same problem with GPU option. Can adobe provide a strong package like no glitch or bug?
Fixed proposed here did not work for me. instead
You are talking about Photoshop while this is the Lightroom forum.
These are separate programs with their own preferences, do not mix them up.
Fair enough - The same setting is actually available in Lightroom and did resolve the issue described in this conversation (at least for me)
Logged in just to say thank you! This worked for me, while the other things didn't.
You are PERFECT! Thank you so much...
Worked like a charm. Also worked from Lightroom! Thank you so much!
easy peasy! It worked super fine!
Just to clarify quickly, this bug appears as a problem with Camera Raw not correctly implementing GPU Acceleration when editing raw files. It's not actually a bug with Photoshop or Lightroom specifically.
In Lightroom, this is easy to fix. Follow the path Edit > Preferences > Performance, you will see that the "Use Graphics Processor" is in the "Camera Raw" groupbox of settings.
In Photoshop, it's a little more complicated. If you follow the same path Edit > Preferences > Performance > "Use Graphics Processor," you will see that it is not in a "Camera Raw" groupbox of settings, and deselecting it will not fix the problem. This setting is applicable specifically to Photoshop only and doesn't address the problem.
Instead, in Photoshop you have to follow a different path. Navigate to Edit > Preferences > Camera Raw > Performance > "Use Graphics Processor" and deselect. This will resolve the problem.
Same here. Logged in just to say thanks. I imported some presets and I thought that did it. It was driving me crazy.
