I bought a new computer and I need to download Lightroom onto this computer.  I dont have the CD so how do I re-activate my one-time purchase (NOT a subscription) onto this computer?

 

Changed to show that a one time purchase is not a subscription... Moderator

Here you'll find a good article about moving Lightroom to a new computer.

How do I move Lightroom to a new computer? | The Lightroom Queen

 

I think yuou're using Lightroom 6.

To download the appropriate installation files goto to:

Adobe Lightroom 6 (CC 2015) Direct Download Links – Free Trials | ProDesignTools

Scroll down to the section "Adobe Lightroom 6/CC 2015 Direct Download Links"

Save the installation file for further usage. It's not sure how long tihs files will be available.

 

You should deactivate your lightroom installation on your old computer. As far as I know the new installation would be activate automatically.

I bought lightroom and my old computer is broke.  I cannot recover my original purchase and I cannot get the serial number.  How do I recover my purchase onto a new computer?

Log-in to your Adobe account and click this link https://account.adobe.com/products

If your serial number is not there, nobody can help

You really should have written your serial number down and kept it in a safe place

 

Lightroom 6.14 here https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/lightroom-6-end-of-support.html

 

Computer crashes happen... the FIRST time you download a program make an external copy
IF/When you do have a download, be sure to copy it to AT LEAST one external device
-you should ALWAYS keep a copy (or two!) on an external device
-since Adobe DOES SOMETIMES REMOVE OLD VERSIONS FROM THE SERVER
-a usb flash drive or external hard drive, or write to a CD or DVD
-plus a text file containing your serial number if you have a serial number program

When I click the link I provided it says that version 6.14 will be available until 12-31-2023

 

If you don't have version 6 you might try looking at this site... I do NOT know if anything before version 6 is available

I do not know how far back this process will go, but try this link
Direct Download Links https://prodesigntools.com/tag/ddl MAY help
-NOTE that you will have to search the site for your specific download
-you MUST do what it says in Note: Very Important Instructions
-https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-cc-2015-direct-download-links.html#download-instructions
-the prodesign links go directly to Adobe's file server, so this process will
--only work until Adobe completely removes the old version(s) from the server

Use the direct download link posted above.  Hopefully it will work with your system & license.

 

Adobe removed legacy installers when they discontinued support for those older products.  Use of unsupported software is at your own risk.  It might work or not.

Which operating system?

Legacy software won't work on Catalina, Big Sur, Monterey or Ventura. And it will never be tested on Windows 11.

 

See my reply from a related discussion yesterday.
