I subscribe to Lightroom and have it on my desktop. My Nikon D750 will tether fine to the desktop.
On my laptop which has Lightroom 5.7.1 it does not recognize the camera. Is there any way I can make this work.
You need a minimum of v6.0 see: A list of cameras that can be tethered to Lightroom.
You can always use another solution such as DigiCamControl and set up the destination folder a watched folder in LR 5.7.1
