Hi, I have a stand alone licence of Lightroom 5 that I never used on CD. I now have the new 2021 16" MacBook Pro M1 Max and would like to know if it's compatible? I do have an external CD/DVD reader/writer for my MacBook. Appreciate any help. Thank you.

As far as I know, only NEW programs run on the m1 chip

 

But, Apple MAY have some sort of compatibility mode, so put the disc in the drive and find out for yourself

would like to know if it's compatible?

No.! Lr6 uses a 32bit installer.  New Mac systems will only use 64bit Apps.

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.4.1 Photoshop 23.4.1, ACR 14.4.2, Lightroom 5.3, Lr-iOS 7.0.2, Bridge 12.0.2, Windows-10.

What @Rob_Cullen said. Lightroom 5 will definitely not install on the M1. You'd have to dual boot with Lightroom 5 installed on an external drive running a compatible operating system such as macOS Mojave.

 

To use Lightroom Classic on your M1 you'll have to subscribe to one of the Photography Plans.
