yes i tried that and restarted and it didn't change
i even uninstalled lightroom and reinstalled it and it still acts the same. it also says "error while changing module"
Take a look here:
When you did a reinstallation of Lightroom do you tried a clean installation?
If not then follow the steps below:
Backup your catalog, templates etc.
Deinstall Lightroom and all other Adobe software
Run the Adobe Cleaner Tool
Install the Creative Cloud app
thank you for your help. i did all of this and it still comes up blank...
Which hardware and which operating system do you use?
Do you have resetted the Lightroom preferences?
Do you have install the latest version of the graphic card driver?
If no, try the newest, if yes try an older one.
At the moment I don't have any further ideas.
On thing that you can try is to go back to an older version of Lightroom, like 7.2/7.3
