I purchased LR5 (stand alone) and received a license and serial number. Somewhere along the way I signed into Creative Cloud. Now LR5 thinks it's LR5 Mobile and wont let me into the develop module without renewing my subscription. I never purchased a Creative Cloud membership for any product. Also, previous folders, etc. are not visible in app. Can I uninstall LR5 and start again?
You should be able to. See if the following helps before that...
How do I prevent Creative Cloud from taking over my CS6 perpetual license?
If you download the application get it thru one of the following links
Lightroom - all versions
No luck. The reference to Creative Cloud taking over my perpetual license
did not really address my issue. I uninstalled LR5 completely using Clean
My Mac. Went to the referred site to download LR5 and reinstall and it
still thinks it's LR5 Mobile. Not sure how to make this right.
