Hello,

I'm still using Lightroom 6 and had to re-install it after upgrading my Notebook to Windows 11. Now I can't activate my licence. Everytime I start Lightroom it says it is a testversion and asks me to activate. I always do, but next time I start the software the same thing happens.

What can I do?

Not the least bit suprising.  LR6 is discontinued & unsupported.  It will never be tested on Windows 11.

Old software needs an old OS that can support it.

This is about Win10 so I have NO IDEA if it will help with Win11

-RIGHT click the program icon or EXE and select a compatibility mode in the pop up option window
-and/or select Run as Administrator to assign FULL Windows permissions
