This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Crashes when I hit Import button
Crash report has this info:
<crash exception="EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION" exceptionCode="0xc0000005" instruction="0x00007FFBA933CDE4">
The faulty module is wpdmanager.
The crash occurs after a minute after Lightroom starts. Unplugging a tablet from USB port resolves the issue.
Lightroom could just easily ignore the error, because if Preferences window or any other modal window is open at a time when the crash happens, I can leave the crash dialog open (just moving it aside), close the modal window and continue working just fine.
Took me a week to realize how to work around this bug.
To all those having EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION crash all of a sudden: check if you have any external devices connected to USB and try disconnecting them.
