Quote: while I wait for Lightroom to work
I do hope it's not one of those, er, "dubious" copies!
There, there, there, mummy will make it better! - 8
Now try it with LR3.
Which version of windows are you running?
Next time lightroom crashes follow this
1) right click my computer
2) select manage
3) select event viewer
4) select administrative events (XP) or Custom views (Win7 & Vista)
5) if the later select administrative events
6) sif through the logs to find the program that crash and / or driver etc. You will prob need to have a good idea of the time that lightroom crashed.
7) to view the information on a crashed event right click on it and select properties.
Try searching online for the decription that is listed in the text box or try searching for the event error code related to your problem.
Hope this helps.
Take a look at Pauls reply (sut68) ACR in CS5 uses the same engine as Lightroom. If that's OK it would suggest there's some corruption somewhere. Than as others have suggested uninstall then reinstall.
I'm assuming you have a legitimate copy so why not drop them an Email.
Just on the off chance you have an unofficial copy.. Then your problem is probably not an Adobe problem. In which case I would suggest you uninstall. Update your virus / malware software and scan your system thoroughly.
sounds like a software conflict with another similar software installed check you don't have a similar software installed and if you have check it.
I run LR 3.4.1 on my win7 64bit computer with 8Gb of ram. All very legal.
Lightroom has always been flaky but recently I purchased TTG Highslide Gallery CE and TTG Cart CE and installed both plugins into LR.
Disaster. Blue screen after blue screen.
It damaged the registry and eventually windows would not even start.
Yesterday, after 4 days of trying to find out what had happened (checking for virus, malaware etc) I solved the problem when I realised that the ram memory voltage was slightly higher than the motherboard supported. 8 Gb of new 1.5v ram memory and voila I was able to repair the registry, fire windows back up and run the offending plugins within LR. Worked a dream, no problems at all.
My reason for telling this is yo should be methodical in trying to find out what the problem could be. Don't try all the possible solutions at once but one at a time. Eventually you will find out what the problem is by a process of elimination.
Just hope it is easier to solve than my problem was. I even bought a new 1TB hard disk thinking the HD could be giving up the ghost. Got plenty of extra storage now
...............................so does that mean that LR isn't crap??
I think its great
Lightroom is fantastic, on a Mac. Its the inherent unreliability of Windoze thats crap.

If that was a question for me, I have never said LR was crap. I have used it since version 1 and would not be able to operate without it.
It is clunky and in some areas not very well thought out but on the whole I'll forgive it for the downs 'cause the whole package is a good one.
My 'misinformation' is through experience, if that counts?

Seems on the Mac that you can't rely on your ' key to work though
By the way I think you're misinforming people....
My 'misinformation' is through experience, if that counts? It worked there.

My experience is that it works fine on a PC, so it don't seem to count for much.
The master awakens. Evidently your opinion is the only one that ever counts. So fix the problem for Sylar.
