Lightroom 3 will not run on any recent Macs. You can contact Adobe Customer Care for help with activations.

LR3 Subscription

You need an installer (that's not going to be easy to find). You'll need Adobe's servers to accept that old serial number (that's likely not possible). 

LR3 which isn't a subscription, was introduced in 2010, that's like a million computer years ago.

LR3 (the very 'old' perpetual version) needs the Install .EXE file and a Serial Number to install, but you won't get it on a recent Mac system! Neither will you find a download online anywhere.

I think you are out of luck.

Isn't it time you upgraded to v11 (Lightroom-Classic) with a subscription to the Photography Plan (20Gb) that offers much more!

Are you referring to Lightroom Desktop, a.k.a Lightroom Cloudy? or Lightroom Classic

 

Lightroom desktop ( know called Lightroom Ecosystem in these community pages) uses an album on the cloud. Lightroom Classic uses a catalog on a hard drive.
