I bought my photography camera in 2016 and it came with Lightroom software. It is still installed on my old laptop which is destroyed due to a cat urinating on it. I was wondering if it could be possible to get the software back for my new computer.

 

Thank you in advance.

It depends on what version NUMBER of Lightroom you owned, and what operating system version NUMBER is installed on your new computer.

I asked for two pieces of information. Providing one piece of information and not providing the other doesn't provide enough information for me to give you an answer.

It's not possible to install Lightroom 6 (2016) on macOS Monterey.

Whatever version of Lightroom you were using (probably LR6 in 2016), you need to know that it is no longer supported by Adobe and nor do they facilitate online downloads. It is, however, possible to obtain a download from this web-site: https://prodesigntools.com/adobe-lightroom-6-cc-direct-download-links.html#more-61627

 

Before starting off in that direction, you also need to know that if your new computer is running any of Catalina, Big Sur or the latest Monterey versions of MacOS it is not possible to install LR6 on any of those operating systems (the LR6 installer is 32-bit code, whereas those latest operating systems are 64-bit only). If you can boot into a prior MacOS version, then yes you could download and install LR6, though of course you would need your original serial number as well.

You can't install LR 6 on Monterey. You could subscribe to Lightroom Classic, which is the successor to your LR 6. You could also install an older OS on an external HD (dual boot) and then you can install LR 6.
