It's not a good idea to use Time Machine back-up copies except for Apple applications. Send to the trash and do a fresh download and installation from the link below. After successful installation of 6.0, download the 6.3 update.
But as soon as I close lightroom or switch off the computer, I can't launch Lightroom again.
Does that gives you an error message?
Have you tried reinstalling Lightroom on new MAC?
Reinstalling an installed application via Time machine might give issues sometimes.
Only migrate the Application data not the Application.Reinstall from link below:-
Download link:- Install Photoshop Lightroom
Update link Lightroom 6.3:-http://swupdl.adobe.com/updates/oobe/aam20/mac/AdobeLightroom-6.0/6.3/setup.dmg
Thanks but transferring through Time Machine was the answer Apple support gave me over the phone ! They said it would work since the other way through ethernet cable (not sure this is the right word in English sorry) would not work.
I have lots of presets and all I don't want to loose on the Lightroom6. If I do a fresh download am gonna loose my catalogs and presets, I have got so much work on it.
Akash there is no error message just the introduction picture skips before it opens really.
If I reinstall Lr on the new mac won't I get problems with the license since it's used on the old mac ?
How can I migrate only Application data ? While migrating there's no such option I can only tick the box Applications (which means migrating all of the whole applications) ? Or do you suggest I do a manual migration of the application data ?
Last but not least since I work as a photographer it s essential to me to not loose the catalogs and the presets which I have worked on for years now.
Thanks for answering to both of u, I feel lost
Well am gonna try, see if it works. Will let you know.
Sorry the two links are for an English version. No way I can get in in French (since I am French easier) ? When searching for a French version I always end up on CC account
Seems it works with the news download from my license (2nd computer license). Doing the update let's see.
Yoooooooo fantastic it works. Can't believe it. Have checked also after switching of the computer. And I don't know how but the application got the catalogs and presets rightly like the last version I had. Don't know where it comes from since I had deleted all the files with appclean. Or might be from the library or the version in my adobe space.
Anyway thanks for your help, hope it goes on working fine and really thanks cause I thought it was gonna take one month to solve this.
Have a brighty day cause you made mine !
