    How do I deactivate one computer from Lightroom 6?

      Please note that the answers on the forum for previous versions of Lightroom do NOT work with Lightroom 6.

       

      I had Lightroom 6 successfully installed on 2 computers. One of the computers failed, had its drive wiped and replaced. In trying to install Lightroom 6 on the replacement computer, after entering the serial number, I receive the message:

       

      "The serial number xxx is already in use by the maximum allowed computers. You need to deactivate another computer within 30 days to use this product."

       

      I can click the Continue button all I want and it will not move off this error panel. Obviously I can't start the old computer to deactivate that copy as it was wiped and I no longer have access to it.

         

      Any solutions?

       

      BTW, doing a web search does find this question on the Adobe forums but attempting to access the link (with multiple browsers) results in a certificate error.
