from 7.2 version often LR crash after a few minutes that has been open (see crash report attached).
On the internet I found this solution:
a file config.lua inside the folder C:\Users\ianni\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom with this command "DigestManager.dontCalculateDigest = true".
Seems to have solved but which is the problem?

Hi iannimao, welcome to the forum!

That's a question you'd need to put in front of the engineering team at the Official Feature Request/Bug Report Forum at Photoshop Family Customer Community

I believe that issue that was introduced in 7.2 was supposed to be fixed in later releases, so does it still crash with 7.4 installed, without the config.lua?
Yes without config.lua file still crash :confused::
