How to fix: Lightroom 4 – Crash on Import

After importing a file, Lightroom stops working. This might not be a solution for everyone but here are two things you can try:

1. Delete the Preference file located at

“%appdata%\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences” (just enter this at Start->Run or WindowsKey+R)

or the long way:


2. Disconnect all USB Controllers. Lightroom disliked my connected Windows 8 Phone so go check those devices as well.
