I downloaded lightroom 6 ($149USD) without my computer being compatible, and I'm wondering if I can download an oder version without paying again.
Adobe doesn't sell anything other than the current version. You would have to find an older version from another retailer such as B & H Photo or Amazon, etc.
Please see this tread and follow links to download older version Re: Hi,How can I download an old version of lightroom?.
