My Windows 10 PC shows four versions of Lightroom installed in the Apps list as follows:

I'm suing Lightroom 6.13 (an old stand alone version of Lightroom).  Can I safely uninstall LR 3.5, LR 4 and LR 5 without affecting the functionally of my LR 6.13?

Yes, once Lr 6.13 has all your work.

Thanks.  I only retain the current year's photos in my LR catalog.  I have many years of backups of the RAW files and the xmp files that go with them.  Thus, it seems that I can uninstall LR 3.5, 4 and 5 and still be good to go.

It may be possible to use Lr 6.13 to import the Catalog files from 3,4 +5 into Lr6.13.

If the images are still in the original folders this is possible.

Provide additional details and help in the forum should be available.

You also may like to un-install all of them (3,4,5,&6.13), then install v6.14 from this link-

LR 6.14 only added some new cameras.  I don't need it.  I uninstalled 3.5, 4 amd 5 and all still works fine.

 

Thanks to all.

The link Rob posted will not be available for ever so it would be a good idea to download the installer and keep it safe in the event you ever need to reinstall.
