Moving LR 3.0 From 32bit PC to New PC w/ 64bit

Feb 16, 2013 9:55 PM

I want to move LR 3.0 from 32bit PC with  program on 1 HDD and photos on a second HDD to new PC 64bit with two HDD. I can copy the second HDD with the photos, but how do I install the LR 3.0 on the new program HDD and will it find the links to the right photos and folders? or should I do this another way? Once I have this installed on my new PC, I want to upgrade to LR 4.0 because I will now have a 64 bit computer.

    if you want to upgrade, you don't need to install lr 3.0 on your new computer.  you just need your lr 3.0 serial number (and lr 4.0 serial number) when installing 4.0.  that will make for a cleaner installation on your new computer.

    no, you'll need to manually move those files.  the following has a link to a 2min video showing you how to do that: http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2012/04/upgrading-your-lightroom-3-catalo g-to-lightrom-4.html
