LR 12.53 large amount of WriteFile (MDRV Process Termination Related)

I am running LR 12.53. I am running into a problem where LR will throw an MDRV - Abnormal Termination error. I find that it drops 50 users at a time, which is the max a thread is holding.

I am using Process Monitor (Windows 7) on the Load Generator, not the Controller, and I am finding that mmdrv.exe is running the WriteFile Operation a few hundred times. All of these are pointing towards the same file. Right after this happens, I see 50 messages popup in Process Monitor that say "Thread Exit".

I am wondering if there is any correlation here? The path of the file that it is creating is C:\users\myuser\AppData\Local\Temp\LR_mmdrv_some numbers.

I am unable to decode the .dmp file, mainly because I am not sure how to without downloading software.

Any other information I can provide I will. Thanks.
