I installed LR 6.3 (WIN7 64bit). After starting LR says "Sequencer defunct". I tried to start a ad hoc slideshow - but unfortunally it will not work. LR counts the Images, but after there is only a black screen. I can ́t found any possibility to present the Show. I tried a new start of the Computer - but the same problem. Please help and repair this problem immediately

The solution, as added by wu yuhong

Hi Stephen, I made some changes of the video_toolkit.dll. Would it be possible that you replace the 6.3 video_toolkit.dll with the new video_toolkit.dll and see if the problem is still happen? Please download the new video_toolkit.dll from the URL: http://adobe.ly/1kQp9MD, and they follow those steps below,

1. Uninstall your current version of Lr 6.2.1 and install Lr 6.3.
2. Goto the folder C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom\ and find a DLL named 'video_toolkit.dll'.
3. Rename it to 'video_toolkit.dll.original".
4. Down load the 'video_toolkit.zip' from Yuhong's CC shared url link (http://adobe.ly/1kQp9MD,). Unzip it.
5. Copy the 'video_toolkit.dll' from the unzipped folder to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Lightroom\.
6. Relaunch Lr 6.3 and see if the video problem persists.

Thanks a lot!
