Hi Paul ,
Moving Discussion to Lightroom Classic CC — The desktop-focused app
It looks like Lightroom is making a call to the AGkernel.dll file This can happen when AGkernel.dll is damaged and needs to be repaired or AGKernel.dll is the wrong version and needs to be updated to the correct version.
Here are some things you can do to fix the file:
- Re register AGKernel.dll with Windows: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/249873
- Install all available updates for Windows: Install Windows updates
- Uninstall and reinstall Lightroom from Install Photoshop Lightroom (not from CD)
Let us klnow if that helps.
This has happened to me today March 3,2016
LR 6 standalone version won't start because of 'missing entry point" related to AGKernel.dll on Windows 10.
I re-installed MS Visual basic C++ 2012.
Uninstalled and re-installed LR 6
I am experiencing the same problem and went through the suggested resolutions, however still have the same issue when opening the LR6 on Windows 10. Any real solution for this?
Finally found a wonderful and easy resolution, just install LR6 on another computer "computer 2" and once done go to C:\prgram files\adobe\lightroom of computer 2.then copy all files under Lightroom.
Then delete all files under corrupted Lightroom on computer 1....then open LR and it should work. :-)
Hi all, my Windows 10 x64 has all the latest updates, I uninstalled and reinstalled Lightroom but it still won't start and it still gives me that same error message at startup. But I sure didn't "re-registered" the DLL part because I don't know where that AGKernel.dll file is located. What would be the command line for this action? Also, which MS Visual Basic C++ version (2008, 2010, 2012, etc?) should I remove/reinstall in order to replace this exact file? Would that fix the "corrupted" file?
Thank you all for your time and support,
