I still have a Lightroom 6 serial key and I want to install LR6 on my new computer. Unfortunetaly, the download link from this site is gone.
Is there still a way to get a LR6 installer?
(I will archive it somewhere safe and never ask this question again)
EDIT: I did purchase LR6 from a third party so I have only the serial key. Anyway, I've conntacted Adobe Support and they provided the download link. Thanks for your help!
fabianw24244363, good evening.
Due to a change in support policy during this time, the download links for previous versions, including Lr6, have been removed.
If the product was purchased as a direct download from the Adobe Store, you may be able to see the link in your account management, but if it's not there, there's no way to get it.
Or maybe you can get some tips from this site.
If you go to the Adobe main site, Sign in with the Adobe ID you used when you first bought LR 6 (you had to create an Adobe ID to use even LR 6) you will be able to download the most current version, LR 6.14.
If you have not register your serial number you can still do that and as long as it is a valid serial number you should be given the opportunity to download LR 6.14.

I just purchased the Mac Air that has Catalina operating system. The Lightroom 6 download / installer doesn't work with Catalina. Any suggestions? I don't want to do the cloud subscription because I store all my photos on an external drive. I just want my old version of Lightroom. Thanks.
As you discovered, Mac OS 10.15 won't let you install LR 6 because its installer is 32-bit. The only workaround is to install Mac OS 10.14, install LR 6, then upgrade to Mac OS 10.15 (a very involved process).
"I don't want to do the cloud subscription because I store all my photos on an external drive."
Note that there are two different species of Lightroom, "Lightroom" and "Lightroom Classic" (you can thank the highly paid Adobe marketers for that confusion). Both are subscription. Lightroom stores photos in the cloud, while Lightroom Classic stores them in folders on your local disks.
When you purchase and install Lightroom Classic, it will automatically convert your old LR 6 catalogs.

Thanks for the info. Trying to avoid a subscription, but it looks like that's out of the question.
I migrated my LR6 installation from macOS 10.14 to 10.15 months ago and had been working fine until the beginning of this week. The reason one has to do this is that the LR6 installer is not a 64-bit application and starting with Catalina, 32-bit executables are no longer supported.
Things went sideways when I ran the user migration tool to import data from a Carbon Copy Clone of my data to a new 2020 Macbook Air i7/16 GB/512 GB. Lightroom 6 ran once on the Macbook Air without a problem. I exited gracefully and backed up settings when prompted. Later in the day tried to access LR6 again. When I clicked on the LR icon, it would briefly execute and crash. Opened up console to try and see what might be going on and got nowhere. I wiped my new Air reinstalled Catalina and restored from my 12" Macbook backup as second time with the same result.
My "solution" will be to run LR 6 on a legacy MacBook Pro for now.
I thought I was in the same boat but when you go into your Adobe account (for those who bought directly I guess) look at purchase history rather than products. Under Products no downloaders are avaiolable but under Purchase History ach purchase is shown with an order number highlighted. Click the order number and the related serial numbers and licence keys - one more click and there was the downloader for both MAC and for Windows.
In the same situation as you. Downloaded file as you said but file does nothing when I click on it.
What was the size of the file? The installer and package for Windows 10 is over 1GB?
