I just re-install my sing purchased lightroom 6 to my new desktop.
Creative cloud doesn't work for new lightroom cc or classic, doesn't any any serial number.
and download links below don't have the exact application.

Isn't this it from the first link?
I'm having the exact same problem. It pretends that all the Lightroom versions are available on the Lightroom download page but it only lists 4 and 5. Where is the download link for 6? The above screenshot doesn't match the page
Yep, it's gone for me too.
Adobe has a curious habit of doing things like removing popular download links without warning with no explanation.
Just be sure to carefully follow the download instructions on that page first, BEFORE clicking on the links. Otherwise they won’t work, and you’ll get an “access denied” message from Adobe’s servers instead.
After sitting with Adobe support for 40 minutes, I have the link. When I asked why it takes this special emailed link, they said "it must be a technical issue with the site": Download Photoshop Lightroom
In same predicament again... laptop died... new PC & trying to download LR6 again... none of the links previously advertised work anymore...
Anyone any suggestions?
How do you download Lightroom 6 from that link?
So...if you click the trial, it will give you the desktop version. I just finished but what I am finding is there is no way to register it with an existing serial number. So I have it installed with a 7-day trial. I am going to send Adobe a note to see if there is a way to register it. Not happy about this...I had a hard drive crash and am trying to reinstall the app as I had the catalogue on a different drive. I get moving to the cloud but hate that companies are moving in this direction for apps like this and charging a monthly fee. Yes, more $$ in their pocket but more out of ours and not all users want this!
In case anyone runs into the sames thing in 2020. I didn't find any link collection that worked for the old LR 6.x versions.
Online Chat support helped. Have your license key handy.
After getting reconnected a couple of times, they asked for my key, verified it and gave me a direct link. Took a little over 10 minutes. So at least that's something.
I just used one of the above links and Lightroom 5 was the latest version available, no 6 in sight.
In the process of migrating to a new computer, I learned that the LR6 installer is no longer available because it is no longer supported by Adobe. Adobe cutomer support directed me here to submit a query [I was not successful reaching a live person via chat and.] I'm not terribly tech savvy, but searched and found this string which seems to highlight my issue.
Thank you for posting the above link Glenn5DAF. Unfortunately, I get an error message "A problem occurred while extracting some files. Check available space on your computer and the write privileges on the destination folder." Any help would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. I am content with my single purchase LR6 from 10/2015. The thought of being forced to purchase a subscription for an updated program that I already technically purchased is a crock.
Thanks in advance.
I now have got the same problem my lightroom six was working perfectly well and using a midi controler as well, then my laptop stopped working and now been trying to install it and it will not let me it said deactivate the old one but don't know how too
Deactivation requires customer support. Contact them via chat or phone and tell them you want an ACTIVATION COUNT RESET. If they tell you to come here, tell them this is something that only they can do and if they don't know how, to please transfer you to someone who does.
Edited to add: Beware of ANYONE who contacts you directly via email or DM claiming to be an Adobe employee. They are not; they are scammers.
Resetting the activation count is the only support now available for any of the Creative Suites that can still be used.
I'm having a similar situation trying to reinstall LR6 on a new computer I bought to enhance my photo editing experience. So much for that. But when I reinstall the exact same file as I used to install LR6 on my original computer, it now says version CC2015.14, not 6.14 with a perpetual license. I tried the links in this post as well and they all register as CC2015.14. Very strange. I wonder if I need to uninstall it from my other computer before I install it on the new one to unconfuse the licenssing issue. Adobe was unhelpful and sent me to this support link and had no intent on listening to what was going on. I will NEVER spend another dime on an adobe product but I sure would like to get my purchased version working. I'm cautious about uninstalling it from the old machine in fear it won't install back correctly if it in fact does not work on the new machine at all.
I looks like Adobe is going to attach another serial number in my case. They were very helpful.
So what is this "new computer"? Lr6 will not install on the last three versions of Mac OS (Apple saw to that by their OS upgrades!). And most likely not compatible with Windows-11.
If your install shows "CC2015.14" it has installed as the Creative Cloud subscription version. (you must have, at some time, installed the CC Desktop App that sets it as a subscription version)
Try this Web Archive link for an answer to convert CC2015.14 to v6.14 How to convert a Lightroom CC trial to Lightroom 6
And if you strike the Limit of Activations (2)- you must contact Adobe support to "RESET ACTIVATIONS"

IMO if you "NEVER spend another dime on an adobe product" then do not expect any support from Adobe. My US$9.99/month for the Photography Plan buys me the best of editing software for my hobby photography.
Actually, Adobe has earned my continued business by supprting the existing version of purchased software.
FWIW, a helpful Adobe agent found a way to install and activate Lightroom 6.14 on my new laptop in January 2022. Initially, the agent told me that the program would not work with Windows 11, but then was able to provide installation help using an older version of my license from a previous version to get me past the error message that the license (for version 6) was valid but the program was unavailable. The program seems to work fine.
