Simply uninstall LR via installer/Contorl Panel/Finder.
Then sign out of CC Desktop.
Sign back in to CC Desktop and wait for the apps to refresh to confirm Lightroom is not installed.
Then activate your stand-alone Lightroom product with your serial number.
Thanks but I seem struggle with the simply uninstall LR.
I cannot find the uninstall program on my mac
There is no installer/uninstaller for mac. Simply drag from applications to the trash.
Okay thanks This took me a step further. I have dragged the LR app in the trash. removed it from CC. But when I drag it back to applications. It starts up in de CC mode.
Do I have to download a trail version of LR 5 and then use my serial number to activate it?
Sorry, I am obviously not very good at this.
Yes you can download the current version as a trial and make it permanent with the serial number from your purchase.
Thanks very much you have been a great help. Mark
