I have an old DELL Precision 4600 with W7 installed. In spite of the generous tech specs (32 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD) I could never upgrade to W10, because Microsoft deemed my laptop not suitable for the upgrade due to unknown reasons.
So here I am, with a Lightroom Classic 9.1 installed (I missed the upgrade to 9.4, the last one accepting W7, nor I know how could I get now that last upgrade).
Recently I couldn't use the application for some days due to connection issues. I discovered later I could not connect due to a switch from SSL to TSL by Adobe and I fixed it: W7 supports TSL, but it is disabled by default. I tinkered a bit with the registry and now it works again.
I think I will not change my laptop until next spring or so. How long is my current version of Lightroom Classic (9.1) supposed to work? From now to then do I risk to find myself without a working version of Lightroom Classic due to some further move by Adobe (like their switch from SSL to TSL)?
