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.
Go to Lightroom Preferences from the Edit menu
Click on Performance tab
Uncheck the Graphics Processor
Open and check if it works fine, then go back to the Device Manager and enable the Graphics Processor.
Let us know if that helps.
Well, it worked up until I re enabled the graphics processor.
Lightroom actually opened when I had the graphics processor turned off. But after I re enabled it the same problem occurred.
Have you disabled/ Uncheck the Graphics processor from the Lightroom preferences.
Also, please try and update the Graphics processor drivers from the manufacture website.
I did uncheck from lightroom. I will try to find the drivers from the manufacturer website now.
Thank you for your help, I have received more help from you in the past hour than I have received from anyone on this issue.
Well, I downloaded the drivers offered on the Intel site, One was the one I currently had (which was the most recent) I installed the other to see... no change still getting the same error. Reinstalled the most current driver... details on that as follows:
Intel R HD Graphics; Date 12/21/2015; Version 10.18.10.4358 .
Off for now as I have to be at work in 5 hours so better get to bed. Thank you again for your help, I appreciate that immensely.
UPDATE!! Today I decided to go back in and disable my graphics driver again, and to re enter Lightroom . While in Lightroom today with my graphics card dis-abled I ran the Lightroom check for update option under one of the help menus and the latest and greatest downloaded. ( had to turn off lightroom for that to finish) It opened after update successfully, so I went and re-enabled my graphics driver to see if now Lightroom would launch with the graphics card. YES!!
Thank you for your help!
