Hello,

 

I use lightroom 5 and have recently up graded to a new computer. A PC to a Mac. I am trying to move the program to my new computer, but I am not having any success.  Is there anyone out there who has sucessfully done this? I'd really appreciate some support. Thanks in advance!

"a new Mac"? You cannot install the standalone Version 5 in Big Sur or Catalina Mac OS. The installer file is 32bit. Macs are now 64bit only. Time to subscribe to the Photography Plan (20Gb)!
