Lr download works on desktop but not on laptop. Download version of Lr5.7 (standalone, not CC) from B&H Photo activates and works fine on iMac. When copy is opened on MacBook Air, it acts as if it is opening an expired CC version. Did have trial on both computers before purchasing permanent student version. Now laptop opens with message that Develop module is disabled and I need to renew my membership. I can not find a place to enter my serial number or access code.
You have the creative cloud-licensed Lightroom installed on your Mac. It will be necessary for you to remove that installation. Then you can download and install from this website:
This is the trial version of the stand-alone installation. But after you install it and start the program there is an option on the trial screen to indicate that you have a serial number. Choose that option and you will be able to enter the number. When that is completed you will be able to continue working. Your catalog and images will still be in place.
Up and running good as gold. Thanks for the help.
