Lightroom 5 Unexectedly has stopped working. None of my imports or saved catalogs previously made their appearance.

In the middle of the photo editing in LR 5 on my MacBook AIr and it suddenly stopped working. I have re-opened and any of my photos or previous catalogs will be displayed. everything is gone. I have my eject SD card and reboot. Still nothing. Saying that it cannot read the files when I try to import again.

Hi colleeni


  • Please open your Lightroom Catalog of file > open recent
  • Also check your backups of Lightroom (location:- pictures > Lightroom > backups by default)
  • Open Lightroom while holding down the button/option (MAC) of ALT (Windows), then select the catalog you want

  • "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 64-bit has stopped working. A problem caused the blocking of the program works correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. »

    In the last two weeks, I installed Lightroom (current version: 5.7.1) on a new All-In-One(Model No. 27-p014) HP Envy 2734 with Windows 10.

    It worked fine until today, when all of a sudden, when I tried to import a recent work, I got the above message. After several tests (and failures), I thought using the system restore and reset the unit to the settings of this morning, thinking the problem might be related to an update from HP that I had downloaded all that little before import (improved performance .NET Application - CPS).

    No luck.

    Welcome to the Microsoft community. Sorry for the delay in responding. The problem is specific to the Adobe Photoshop Light room? Do the other application run without any problem? What version of Windows operating system is installed?

  • 6 Lightroom Develop module has stopped working.

    The module development suddenly stopped working. I use lightroom almost every day. I have imported a new group of photos into the library and went to develop as usual. I see the photo on the screen, as usual, but Ant changes that I do, like exposure, do not change the picture. I try to crop the photo and he disappears, replaced by solid gray. I'm a Nikon D600 raw photos editing. With the help of Windows 10. Yet once, I use it regularly. Don't make any changes to the system. Develop all of a sudden stopped doing anything.

    This could be caused by a profile of defective screen, delivered by an update of Windows or installed during the upgrade of Windows 10.

    You can set the monitor to sRGB profile, (temporarily) If this solves the problem, it is a confirmation that the profile is bad.

    Then, you ideally calibrate your monitor with a standard material, which will create a new and accurate profile.

    To set the monitor to sRGB profile:

    Press the Windows key + R, type colorcpl, and then press ENTER.

    Add the sRGB profile, and then set as default profile. See screenshot (from Windows 7) below.

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

  • Lightroom has stopped working

    I bought a copy of Lightroom 6 and installed on my computer that has Windows 10. Everytime I open the program I get the following message.

    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has stopped working. A problem caused the blocking of the program works correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

    I'm not a computer tech so I don't know how to upgrade graphics and other cards. I am EXTREMELY frustrated with Adobe because of this method of support. No, I will NEVER buy another product from Adobe. I had this problem when I first bought my laptop and it took hours to get solved. My hard drive crashed and I had to get a new one and here I am again.

    Adobe, your support STINKS and I tell everyone I know not to buy your product.

    I understand your concern.

    Please restart your machine in safe mode by pressing the F8 key during the restart and launch Lightroom in this mode.

    If it works well, go to Lightroom preferences > Performance > uncheck "use the graphics processor.

    and restart your machine normally after that.

  • "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has stopped working" on the new installation.

    Just loaded LR v 6.0 of disk. Whenever pop, 'Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has stopped working' window and the only option is to close the program. I use Windows 10 with Intel HD graphics card. I looked at the Lightroom 6 Preferences.AGPREFS file to disable the graphics card, but the file is empty anyway. I also started the Lightroom.exe with administrator rights. I also reinstalled but I still get the same error message no matter what I do. I tried the demo version of CC of LR and Photoshop and wonder if there is some kind of conflict, although I have uninstalled these before implementing the stand-alone version. Please help as worked on it during the day.

    It seems that the graphics driver is at the origin of the crash program.

    Update the graphics driver.

    Regarding the solution please go to the below mentioned location and rename file 'ig7icd64.dll' to 'ig7icd64old.dll'

    You will be able to find the fine to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32
