Need help to reinstall LR 5.7.4 on my laptop. Have valid license and perpetual plan on old PC which "died." Thankfully able to recover 20K+ photos from hard drive, but don't have CD or other media because I purchased this plan years ago via download. Customer Support referred me to this forum today.

Suggestions?

IF/When you do have a download, be sure to copy it to AT LEAST one external device

Which Operating System do you have now?

Win11 might make this a no-can-do.
