Ask on the Leica forums would be my best guess.
The trial is always the Creative Cloud version.
When you launch Lightroom, aren't you given the option to "license this software" or similar?
That should let you enter your serial number.
It's the same thing.
He / she stated he / she had been offered a 30 day trial of CC, but that can be done by anyone, regardless of owning a new Leica.
From the OP, I read that he / she has no Lr software loaded prior to owning this camera.
I figured this out. And I am not impressed by whats going on. There is definitely a stretch here w.r.t truth in advertising.
The link provided by Leica takes to you to the trial version for Lightroom CC instead of being offered Lightroom 6 as a perpetual application. The way to get the right application is to follow the steps here: How to download, install, and activate Adobe applications. I am not sure if this switch is intentional but either way seems like a nice way to get a person to sign up for CC's monthly plan. I would prefer that they be more straightforward here with the marketing.
Also, I have owned all versions of LR from 1-5 and am currently on LR5. I wanted to get LR 6 based on the Leica offering. Finally Vijay is generally a he. :-)
Thanks for the responses.
As far as I know, all Leica cameras come with a Lightroom license, see LEICA CAMERAS - NOW WITH LIGHTROOM 6 // 2015 // Global // About Leica News // Leica News // World of Leica - Leica Camer…
The OP also mentions a redemption code, which means that he/she has a license for LR.
I am Anna on some sites, Fata on others. But I am male in the flesh.
If you try the Leica forums you might learn more.
Getting a reply from Leica.... hahahahaha! Good luck with that. Many have tried, no one has yet succeeded and I speak as was a Leica owner of some years.
From the Leica link in Per’s post, I would say that Leica provides a redemption code for a LR 6 serial number—all trials start as CC, with the possibility to upgrade to a CC license, probably not provided by Leica.
