i bought Lightroom without Creative Cloud (which I do not want). I then tried Creative Cloud and now I cannot use Lightroom as my version has the "Develop" function disabled. But I paid for the standalone version. How do I get rid of this Creative Cloud as I don't want to pay every month?
If the develop module is disabled then you are still using the creative cloud version. It is the same program, but it is licensed differently, and you cannot activate it using a serial number. You will have to uninstall it as well and as the creative cloud application manager. Then you can install the standalone version which you purchased. Do you know where to download the standalone version from? Or do you have an installation disk?
This was excellent guidance. I did find the old version and reinstalled it. Shame on Adobe for not even getting that right. Great advice. Thank you.
