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
- Launch Photoshop.
- Choose Edit > Preferences > Performance (Windows) or Photoshop > Preferences > Performance (Mac OS).
- Deselect Use Graphics Processor.
- Quit and relaunch Photoshop.
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)
