I upgraded/purchased Lr 6 a few years ago and downloaded from Adobe. I now have a new PC and want to run Lr on it and de-activate the program on the old computer. I have the Lr serial number from the old computer. I can't find a site to download the program. I don't need the CC photography package. Any help here to get Lr 6 up and running on the new computer will be appreciated.
Expand the LR 6 section.
Download and install the large Application Installer version from the top of the section.
Download and install the 6.14 patch installer that about half the size, just below.
Thanks -- it worked just fine. Adobe doesn't make it easy to find out how to stay with the desktop version.
Adobe has an easy way to find the download links if you start at www.adobe.com and log in:
I am a cloud member so my clicks are different than yours, but there is a way to get to a list of your orders, then you can click on the LR6 order, then click on a link to download the 6.0 version and see the serial number, which means you could download and install LR 6 even if you didn't have the information from the old computer.
Here are my clicks:
https://accounts.adobe.com/products (serial numbers, but no download links, so went back)
https://accounts.adobe.com/orders (download links for downloaded orders, this is where I saw the LR5 order, below)
https://accounts.adobe.com/orders/others (boxed products, although for me these are from 2012 and give an error)
Here is what I see for my LR5 order -- I was using the Photography Plan $120/year (billed at $10/month) cloud plan by the time LR 6 came out so I don't have a distinct order for it but I assume you can see a LR 6 order if you got it that way:
The Win download would be the 6.0 version then it'd automatically download the 6.14 update once it checked for new updates.
NOOOOOO, Adobe makes it hard!!!!!!! I hate going to their website. I cant even find Manage My Account!!!! I have purchased old version LR 6. Im ready to drop Adobe!
As of 5-8-19 things have changed
How to get a previous version... Read reply #10 https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2620448
-OR... Go to https://www.adobe.com/about-adobe/contact.html
-click on the Chat bot on the bottom right hand corner of the first screen
--the chat bot is the circle with a funny looking box with 3 dots inside
-click on Downloading or Installing, then type Agent
I have exactly the same problem with my purchased version of LR6.
BTW, I can't find the LR6 section to expand you are talking about.
And I as I can read below,
Going to my account -> my products, I can download nothing.
Thanks in advance.
The process has changed again... AND, if you did not originally buy the program via download from Adobe (such as a disc or download from another vendor) my understanding is that there will NOT be a download link tied to your account, so you will not be able to download from Adobe now... this is for ALL serial number programs

Thanks for your answer.
I did originally buy LR6 via download from Adobe and I still have the exe downloaded, but it does not work because it displays in the choices list only LR version to 5, not 6.
The links to download are in Order History, not in My Products.
So I can download an exe for LR6, that's OK.
But the choices list of LR version are still stuck to LR5.
Thanks for the useful tips on downloading from Adobe. Had a problem installing LR6 after downloading it onto to a new computer, a dialog box gives a list of LR versions 1-5 but not 6. So you need to select the earlier version of LR that you upgraded FROM (LR4 in my case) insert the serial number for that version, LR 4, in the box. Then LR 6 installs OK.
I finally install it from scratch, without LR5 installed.
And now, LR6 runs perfectly.
Thanks to all! 🙂
Finally, something that works! Thank you. I had same scenario. I had purchased LR5 and upgraded to 6. LR6 would not install, serial number was recognised, but I got the LR1-5 prompt. Picked LR5, entered that serial number, and 6.14 installed (copied folder in old computer Programs/Adobe over for the LR6.0 to 6.14 update). Thank you again!
