Have you also made any other changes as well like any new plugins installed with the latest update of Lightroom? You may try few things to fix this issue.
1. Reset the Lightroom preferences back to defaults, refer: Preference file and other file locations | Lightroom CC and 6
2. Turn off the GPU from Lightroom preferences and check.
Open Lightroom > Edit menu > Preferences > Perfomance tab > Uncheck GPU > Restart Lightroom.
Let us know if that helps.
Thank you for your quick response. I am hesitant to change my preferences...As I may not remember all of the changes/tweaks I have made over the years. However, I will do so if I must.,
I have disabled the GPU for now, and will see if the crashing continues. If not, then will there eventually be a fix so I can still use my GPU? I know this enables a few features.
Thanks again for the quick response/support. I will look into updating (or downdating) my video driver. I will post back here when I have results.
Looks like the updated video driver has done the trick. I haven't had a crash since. Thanks for the help!!
