I was using LR 8.2 today and tried to use the Enhance Details. An error came up saying I needed to update Windows 10 for it to work. I updated Windows 10 and ever since Lightroom Classic CC and CC for Desktop crash upon startup.

I have uninstalled Classic CC and gone back to 8.1 and I am able to work. This is very frustrating.

So I found the cause of the issue.


Crash is related to Antialiasing - FXAA, go into NVIDIA control panel and turn off FXAA and no more crash.

So THERE IS NO Corrupt driver or other BS, simply when you uninstall a driver, you use all the settings, when you go into control panel and re-enable your settings, crash comes back.

for now, quality in your games will suffer with lack of FXAA, until Adobe gets their act together.

Thank you SO MUCH. Disabling FXAA didn't do it for me (GTX 1060) but I disabled all the anti-aliasing related options that I could in the per application settings for "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom" in the NVIDIA control panel, and that stopped the crash.

For others having this issue (probably everyone with the GTX 10xx cards running the 1809 build) who use the same computer for 3d applications/games, NVIDIA control panel -> manage 3D settings -> the 3d settings box has two tabs, Global Settings and Program Settings. So you can disable anti-aliasing for Lightroom only and not your other programs.
