I was running LR6 perpetual on a Windows 10 desktop. My computer crashed and LR6 was no longer there when the computer was reset. The catalog files are still present though. After a period of time trying unsuccessfully to re-download my LR6 Perpetual software from Adobe, I have purchased a new PC, Windows 11.
I am about to download LR Classic and ideally would like to be able to have LR reconnect to my old catalogs (and upgrade them) and reconnect to my photos.
Is it better for me to download LR Classic to the old Windows 10 computer and see if it will upgrade my old lrcat files and reconnect to my photos, and then migrate it all to the new PC; or it is better to start with downloading LR Classic to the new Windows 11 PC and then migrate the lrcat etc files and photos to the new computer and see if LR figures it all out?
