I use LR since the first betha version on Windows and bought the last 6.0 in 2017 with download
I used it since then without any problems with more that 100.000 images on my system.
A few weeks ago I got a new PC and installed LR 6.0 on it. I signed off on the old system.
On the new system I got the warning, that my serial number is being used on the maximum number of computers. It is only installed on my laptop!
I am completely disconnected to all of my images - please help!!!

sign into your account, https://account.adobe.com
click plans > my plans > manage plans
and scroll to the bottom of the page where your activated computers are listed
deactivate them all if you can't tell which is your current and then open lr on your current computer > click help > click activate or sign-in
thanks for your advice, but there is nothing like 'Activated devices'
I see only the regiustered products LR 1.0 from 2007 and LR 6.0 from 2017 with the product keys 😞
On the old system I can sign off but there ist also nothing like deactive ?
I can install the 6.0 on the new system with the correct key, but when I start it I get massage, that the kex is beeing used of the maximun number of computers and I just can quit.
And sometimes I get, the serialnumber could not be verified ?
On the new system I dont get beyond the error massage an no chance to activate. Did I not activate it during installation?
using a browser that allows popups and cookies, contact adobe support during pst business hours by clicking here, https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html
click contact us (= cryptic icon in the lower right)
in the chat field, type AGENT
be patient, it can take quite a while to reach a human
request an "activation count reset"
request anything else related to unsupported software and you will probably be directed back to the forums.
thanks again for your efforts!
I got an email from the support and hope, that help is on its way!
BTW I don't get that icon on this webpage...
be careful about emails. that could be a scammer.
why weren't you able to connect to an agent from adobe's website?
I got an email from: firstname.lastname@example.org
From: Lori Pierce
it says :
You can Directly send Email to our Adobe Customer Care Team at Email Address:-
Adobelive24X7@outlook.com and they will help you via Email.
Note:-Compose New Email and Copy and Paste the Email ID mentioned Abobe and send Email.
I admit, I did not think and recognize, that it was an Outlook adress, and I sent my problem to that adress 😞
Does Adobe use Outlook???
i wouldn't send anything unless the address ended in adobe.com. if you sent any security info (like your passward for anything), i would change the security info.
and again, why weren't you helped via the chat option? (ie, you should retry following the steps i suggested.)
That is a scammer. No one from Adobe will contact you through email. Adobe does not provide customer support through email.
Do not respond to them. You can report them to Adobe as phishers here: email@example.com
CHAT: Click the following to contact Adobe customer support staff for help:
If that doesn't work, try https://helpx.adobe.com/contact.html?rghtup=autoOpen

As @kglad said, you need to ask for an "activation count reset".
