Lightroom CC crashing on Windows 10 after updating to v5.0

Looking for anyone who is having a similar issue, or anyone who knows how to fix it. This update is great on my iPhone, but every time I open Lightroom on my PC on v5.0 it immediately crashes.
I've tried all of the basic troubleshooting: Uninstalling and reinstalling Lightroom and Adobe CC (multiple times), updating Windows, updating graphics drivers, disabling hardware acceleration, etc. I have a very adequate PC with a Ryzen 5 1600x, 16GB RAM, RTX 2080, so the hardware should not be the issue.
Appreciate the help.
