    Lightroom CC is stuck in develop mode


      When I click on LR CC to start it, first the library mode starts to come up and then it automatically switches to develop mode where it hangs up and will not do anything else.  What is going on?

          Hi colrehogan,


          You need to turn off the GPU Preferences in Lightroom.


          First you need to reset the Lightroom Preferences.



          Quit Lightroom.

          Navigate to the preferences file:

          Mac OS: /Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/com.adobe.Lightroom6.plist

          Windows 7, 8: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs

          Rename the preferences file Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs.old


          Now, When you launch the Lightroom it will open on the Library Module.


          Go to Edit Menu on the top Menu(Windows)/ Click on the Lightroom on the top (Mac)

          Click on the Preferences

          Go to the Performance tab

          Uncheck the GPU settings from there.

          Restart the Lightroom

            I'm having the same problem. But I seem to be unable to uncheck the box, as lightroom gets stuck there. Is there a way around this?

              Yes, follow the below steps.


              You need to turn off the Graphics Processor from the Lightroom Preferences.


              Open Control Panel >> Go to Device Manager >> Under the Display Adapter look for the Graphics Adapter >> Right Click and disable.

              Open Lightroom

              Go to Lightroom Preferences from the Edit menu

              Click on Performance tab

              Uncheck the Graphics Processor

              Restart Lightroom


              Open and check if it works fine, then go back to the Device Manager and enable the Graphics Processor.
