Project crashes Within seconds due to SM6 not being enabled. How can I enable it outside my project?

I just created a new UE5 project using unreal learning kit but everytime I try to open the project I get a message saying that SM6 is required to use virtual shadow maps, but before I can enable it in my project settings Unreal engine crashes.
Is there a way to enable shader model 6 outside the project?

I’m using unreal engine 5.2
