Lightroom 4 Crash

Mar 5, 2012 11:53 PM

Just installed Lightroom 4 and have tried to select book module and the progam constantly crashes everytime I do.....Other modules appear to be working properly. Only the book module is shutting down the program....Any one else having similar problems?

    Please supply more details such as OS, memory, etc.

    First try removing the LR4 preferences.

    For me it's a little different. After upgrading from LR3 to LR4,  LR4 doesn't crash but it does hang. After which, if I try to change the module, I get the error:

    "An error occurred when attempting to change modules."

     

    Mac OS X 10.7.3

    iMac, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4 GHz, memory: 2GB

    I purchased LR 4 today.  Though decided to download and start using as a trial.  Both 32 and 64 bit crashed from the start.

     

    I looked over my catalog that I wanted to upgrade.  I saw some issues with RAW and edited from a Sigma SD14 that I previously owned.  I eliminated every one of those troubling formats from my LR 3 catalog/  Performed a save/backup.  I deleted the LR4 catalogs first created.  The restarted LR4 with my LR3 catalog.  Upgraded and now no crashing.

     

     

    Maybe this gives some ideas to your own situation.

     

    I shall keep LR 3 still installed for awhile until I am free and clear.

     

    I will keep a back up of my presets folder just in case.

    had it crash on me several times last night running a Macbook Pro OS 10.7.3 8Gb RAM, once in the map module and the 2 other times it says copying xml file data but my computer just sits and spins forever.Had some issues with exporting files back from CS5 in that after I did it wouldnt export to a jpg and then the xmp issue came up and crash.

     

    Some folks have been complaining of sluggish performance and i see a slow down in exporting for sure, but i wonder if it may not be optimized for a MAC as the win folks seem to be having no issues.

    I have a similar problem.  Mine doesn't crash, but here is the message I get when I click on the Book module:  (unknown c++ exception).  That's all the information it gives me. I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell Studio 540, 8gb RAM, Service Pack 1.  So far, everything else with LR4 works great. I get no errors with any other module or panel.  I've been kinda waiting to see if anyone else was having a problem with the Book module ONLY.  There surely must be a common thread somewhere here.  And for the record, I did uninstall and re-install LR4.  That didn't help.  Sure would appreciate someone's help because I no nothing about c++ errors. Thanks.  Jack

    Well.  I guess no one else is having the same problem.  That is so not good.  If I'm the only one with this problem then I might as well assume it will never get fixed.  No big deal.

    I have the same problem with the Book module Jack.  I swear it was working before.  I did install Photoshop CS6 Beta today.

    Thanks Bill for adding this to the forum.  I also installed CS6 beta today, but, of course I already was having the problem prior to that.  I am adding that I have the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Design Premium installed on this computer.  I don't know if that has anything to do with an "unknown c++ exception" or not. I can live without the book module because I usually use Blurb for that,but, when I invest my hard earned money in software it really bothers me when EVERYTHIING dosn't work correctly.  Thanks.

    I have a similar problem but with a different module.  Running Windows 7 (64 bit), when I try to go to the Print module, the program hangs up.  Eventually -- like in half an hour or so -- it will unlock, I can switch back to Library or Develop, and continue to work.  But I can't print.

    Jack, have you tried uninstalling LR4 and reinstalling?

    Yes I did try that.  Still the same thing.  But I'm going to try that once again since that's all I know to do.  If by chance the result is positive I will post it. Thanks.

    Well, this is weird!  Out of boredom, I clicked on the book module this morning, and it worked.  Now THAT really fills me with confidence!

    I have the same problem. Click on "Book" causes "unknown C++ exception".

    I already re-installed the program, deleted the preference file, tried it with a brand new catalog without pictures but nothing helped.

     

    System: Win 7 64Bit, i5-750, 16GB DDR3, CS5 Master Suite german and LR4-Trial german (the error caused in the beta, too).

    I also installed Lightroom 4.1 RC today and I still have the same "unknown C++ exception" when clicking on "book".  I think I will also mention some other programs that I have installed on this Dell Studio 540 with Windows 7 Professional. OnOne software's Perfect Suite 6, Photomatix, Portrait Professional, Daz Studio 4, Photoshop Elements 8, Debut Video Capture Tool, and a lot of "utility" programs that are too numerous to mention.  At some point when I have time I may try a uninstall/re-install of some of these and see if that does it.  That would obviously take an enormous amount of time.

    I just installed the just released Lightroom 4.1 version.  The Book Module is now working.  It seems to be working correctly but I haven't put it to the full book test yet.  I hope it solves the issue for everyone else too.
