Hi, my computer was recently upgraded to Windows 11. The Lightroom 6 that previsouly installed on this computer requires me to activate it, but when I input the same series number, it says it cannot be activated because I have used it on more than two computers. It requires me to deactivate the other device(s) in order to activate in this computer. However, I could not find any way to deactivate the old device (the same computer that was previously running Windows 10 before the upgrade to Windows 11). Can anyone help me? Thanks.

When you can't deactivate a serial number (this is the ONLY support Adobe still offers for old programs)
BE SURE TO ONLY ASK FOR ACTIVATION SUPPORT TO ADJUST YOUR ACTIVATION COUNT
You may need to PERSIST or TRY AGAIN to find a support agent with more experience

I'm not sure if the latest Windows 11 will support your legacy Lightroom 6 software.  The two are 7 years apart and LR6 hasn't been updated to run on new computer OSs because it's discontinued and unsupported.

 

Adobe Apps on Windows 11:

Creative Cloud Photography Plan (approx $10/month for 12 months). Includes the following:
- Photoshop CC and Photoshop on iPad
- Lightroom on desktop, mobile and the web
- Lightroom Classic (similar to LR6)
- Portfolio website + hosting
- Bridge
- 20 GB cloud storage (upgradable to 1 TB).

Make sure your computer meets the minimum CPU & GPU requirements. Most Creative Cloud apps work on:

  • Windows 11, Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, 2004, and 1909 (LTSB branches are not supported);
  • macOS 12 (Monterey), macOS 11 (Big Sur), macOS 10.16 or 10.15 (Catalina)

Hope that helps.  Merry Christmas!
