I was given Adobe Photoshop Llightroom 5 when I purchased a new camera. My laptop doesn't have a disk drive.
1. Can I install the software on my old laptop with a disk drive, then transfer the software to my new laptop?
2. Could I download the software straight from the Internet? I only have a CD and serial number, that's it.
I don't know anything about the Mac, but Windows computers need to have the program installed because there are registry entries and other special system files that need to be installed in specific locations. Here is the link that will enable you to download the last update of Lightroom 5 that included all updates to that version:
You will be able to run the installer after it is downloaded. And you will need the serial number that you are given. Just to clarify, that number has 24 digits and the first four are 1160.
THank you so much, that worked!
