p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · anyone else having a problem with lightroom 5.3 hanging on import?


Tried all the usual stuff. Disconnected all USB devices, deleted preferences file, created a new catalog, nothing helps. Even disabled all non MS Services. It hangs so bad that you can't fully terminate it. The only way to restart it is to reboot. Task Manager can't fully terminate it. Seems like others are having the problem as well. It just started with the upgrade to 5.3. Wasn't happening before that.

Spent 2 hours on phone support with adobe but no solutions. Doesn't matter if I import from a CF card, or one of my internal harddrive. Even hangs when synchronizing a folder.

Very frustrating. Had to resort to photo mechanic but I need LR's print module...Or, at least I prefer to output from that instead of photoshop...

yup. No such troubles here either. It's something environmental most likely.

Hmmm. If you want to troubleshoot a little deeper try loading some of the sysinternals tools like FileMon and Regmon. (Google sysinternals). They are MS tools but as always, always, always make sure you have backups.

With FileMon you can try to determine if it's timing out looking for an invalid drive or something. Maybe you have something invalid on your path. You can filter on processes and such.

Regmon, same thing, but monitors the registry.

Good luck. Keep us updated.

I had similar problems when I first installed but it has just disappeared suddenly. Strange.
