I received an email last June that the 2015 release of Creative Cloud was ready and the clock had been "reset" on product trials. I had previously downloaded a trial version of Lightroom 5 but didn't see value in it at the time so did not purchase it.
I had some free time this past weekend, so I was ready to give Lightroom another try. I downloaded Creative Cloud 2015, then downloaded Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. However, when I start Lightroom, I get a message that it is running with reduced functionality and the develop and map modules are deactivated.
I can only assume that somehow my previous install of Lightroom 5 is interfering with my ability to trial the new version. The email I received made me believe this wouldn't be a problem, so is there a way for me to get a proper trial of Lightroom?
I have a licensed version of Photoshop Elements 11 on the computer and I'm running Windows 10, if that makes a difference.
When you check "About Lightroom" in the help menu, what version does it indicate you are using?
It says "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC", then underneath "2015.5 Release"
If it says expired it means it was there on your machine or may be any other CC application. We would suggest you to buy it for month and use it with the full features , if you like you can continue otherwise you can cancel at any point of time.
Note : Go for the Photography Plan ($9.99/Month) which includes Adobe Photoshop 2015, Adobe Lightroom 2015 & Bridge CC
