in October 2013 I bought Lightroom 5 and updated in April 2015 to Lightroom 6. I bought the STANDALONE Version NOT the CC Version of Lightroom.. About a half a hour ago I was ask to do an update after the update Lightroom told me that it's only possible to use if I'm online and conceted with the CC. Because I bought the Standalone Version of Lightroom I disconnected Lightroom. Now Lightroom tells me that I only have a Test Version for 30 days.
This is a "nice" policy to force your customers to Change to the CC Version of Lightroom.
Ok, no answer is also an answer.
It is not required to be a member of Creative Cloud to use Lightroom 6 on the computer.
In the Screen Shot, I believe there is also an option for " Licence this Software" , if you click on the option , please let me know what happens ?
here same problem - weird and awfull - tried all day to get LR start...
now clicked the option "Licence this sofware"; what happend is that I had to enter my key and also the key of LR5 and YES - FINALLY it started again.
this must be my last LR version - when such thing is happening?
I can't do any of these steps, because I can't open the software. that's
exactly my problem.

Hello Tanuj Sandal,
can you please tell me, why I should do your Job without any payment?
If I log me in on Adobe there is a Screen (after I made the update yesterday) - "Do you like it? Chose your Abo-Plan." And then I'm asked how much I want to pay monthly to use Lightroom. Nice try to Change me from a Standalone Application to a cloud based Version.
But maybe your costumors, who bought a Standlone Version thought about it, and activly made their desicion to buy the Standalone Version. I know about your Problems of losing customers and income. But this can not be the way to force your costumers to Change from a Standalone Version to a monthly paid cloud based Version.
I'm not doing your Job and try some Solutions in order to find a fix for this Problem. I secure my work and I'm looking for a new Software.
This is not against you personally, but it's against the policy of your Company. Because I don't want to be forced by any Company.
I am sorry for all the inconvenience that you are facing.
I would request you to completely uninstall the Lightroom Application using the Adobe Cleaner Tool : Use the Adobe Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems
And then download Lightroom 6.0 from the following link , and update it :Keeping Lightroom Up-to-Date
haha, you are funny
at last it is working again and you suppose to uninstall and install again????
Hello Tanuj Sandal,
I would like to ask you a question:
If I would have crashed your car what would you expect?
A) You would repair it your self and you would pay for all the damages
B) You would expecet me to pay a proper Garage for the repair
Your Company had the idea to try to force me to Switch to your cloud Services and know I've all the Problems.
The last three days I had to secure my work, and still I'm not ready. And now I've to uninstall Lightroom and all its plugins. Uninstall this "f*******" Cloud, I've never wanted. Install Lightroom again, hoping that your advise will solve the Problem - because the selection Screen still apears, when I log me in - therefore I don't really believe that this will work.
Therefore I would like to ask you to check this and tell me how I can turn off this selection Screen. Because I DEFENITLY DON'T WANT ANY CLOUD SERVICES.
