I cannot see what the issue is. The flash page displays, "Loading Preferences..." is displayed, and then it crashes, and I get a crash report dialog. I have sent so many of those, and yet have heard nothing in return. I wonder why there is even an email field.

I have uninstalled and installed. I have uninstalled, removing preferences, and installed. The last version that worked for me was 4.3, and now I can't seem to find that to load again.

Any updates for me here? Something to try?
We’ve reviewed the email address you use with this forum and find no new crash reports in our system.
Do you still see a crash dialog?
Do you use a different email address when filling out the crash report?
Was the crash dialog Adobe’s? Microsoft’s?
I believe I may have checked the box to just keep sending them. I tried today to start the LR process.
uninstall/install again, and that should re-init the dialog to send the crash.
Of course, now no matter how many times I uninstall/install that dialog doesn't appear, yet the program behaves the same. Splash screen, then nothing.
A Preference File will survive a Lightroom uninstall/reinstall. Sometimes weird behavior is corrected/cured by resetting the preferences.
1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.
Does the behavior continue after resetting the preferences?
That at least got us back to the dialog 🙂
I verified that the email address is my email address, and the one I used to register the product.
The dump log looks as cryptic as the log I get from my own application so it's up to you to figure it out please. I was hoping there may be some clue in the actual exception.
Let's answer your questions.
Apparently I am not seeing the crash dialog any longer. (Is there something in the registry for this?)
Hopefully I used the same email address.
This looked like an Adobe crash dialog but it's been a while since I last saw it.
Away for the weekend, I will get back to this on Monday. How do we note that I am paying for something that doesn't work? Thanks.
Looking at your original crash log, I would recommend updating Windows to its latest update and then downloading the latest video driver from your video card manufacturer's website.
If you see the crash dialog again after this, type your email address into it and then screenshot it and post it here.
And that appears to have solved it.
