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?
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
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.
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.
