I Just upgraded my Lightroom 5.7 to version 6. All is well on my desktop. So I just purchased a laptop to travel with but am having trouble getting Lightroom to load on it?? I have tried to install Lightroom 5.7 on laptop only to try open and upgrade to 6 ...and it says catalog can't open because running on newer version. How am I going to get lightroom 6 installed. I do not use creative Cloud.
copy the lr 6 installation file (eg, using a usb stick) to your laptop.
when you start installation you'll be prompted for your lr 6 serial number:
if lr 5 is installed on your laptop, you're done except for following the prompts.
if lr 5 is not installed on your laptop, you will then be prompted for your lr 5 serial number. enter the correct number at the correct time and you're done except for following the prompts.
Please open Pictures folder and locate Lightroom Catalogs folder and if present move " lrcat.lock" to Desktop , make sure it is not present under Pictures folder anymore .
Then launch Lightroom and check.
will I put the folder back when done....this is kind of scary..I'm not synced with cloud??
