Just keep watching here on the forum. Someone will probably be able to help you. I am using Lightroom CC, which installs and is managed differently. However, it is my understanding that there is a desktop manager involved with Lightroom 6. If that is true then you can try signing out from that manager and then sign back in. This sometimes seems to make the new update available.
Thank you Jim,
My gut feeling at the moment is to upgrade to CC. I think that Adobe are trying to push everyone down that road!!
Like everyone I want a simple hassle free experience. Standalone may mean just that!!!
Thank you again for your reply,
Thank you John,
Have just tried that. Patch installer downloads and says that it has installed. However when I open Lightroom, it still says it is at version 6.0
I have also rebooted my mac. Which is a 5k iMac.
I am at a loss!!
What a crock by Adobe to not help us 'stand-alone license people out.. Such dreadful customer service!
I have just downloaded Lightroom 6 upgrade standalone edition after clicking the "products" link underneath adobe's webpage. I have also endured over 24 hours of converting my "searchable data" after launching Lightroom 6. Now that when I tried to launch Lightroom 6 again, it is not responding. Then I noticed an update called "6.0.1" is available (to fix this launching issue) but this update file is not posted on Adobe's support webpage. So unless anyone, including Adobe Customer Service, can tell me where exactly this file is, my "standalone" edition of Lightroom 6 will just stand here alone.
Thanks for enlightening me....
