Hi everyone, I have tried looking this up on previous threads but am still confused about this while reading them. Here's my situation: I currently have Lightroom 5 installed on my laptop PC. I am looking to upgrade shortly, possibly to a MacBook. The install package I have says it is both for PC and Mac. So here's my question: If I end up getting a Mac, can I just use what I have to install Lightroom (and have it on my old laptop simultaneously)? Do I need to deactivate it from the older laptop first? Can I do this at all?
Also, if I decide to go with a PC, does it make this process easier? Or is it just the same either way?
Your license is cross-platform. And one license entitles you to two installations for your personal use. There is no activation/deactivation process with Lightroom. Purchase your laptop, install Lightroom, and use the serial number that you have.
Thank you, Jim!
