I upgraded my Windows machine to Windows 11 and now I need to reinstall lightroom product that I bought and have a perpetual license for. Previously the bits were available in my account. But now the download link points to a page that says "Lightroom 6 -- This installer is no longer available". 

 

Clearly this is a way for Adobe to force people to upgrade to ehir monthly plans. But I am an amateur that was willing to price the one time fee for the full product, but is not willing to pay a monthly licese. 

 

Where can I get the bits for the product that I own and need to reinstall ???

PERPETUAL v6 DOWNLOAD

Time you considered the Photography Plan that will upgrade you to v11 of Lightroom-Classic.  ($9.99 PHOTOGRAPHY PLAN (USA)

Lr  v6.14 is now well past End-of-Life! No support is available from Adobe. Lr v6.14 cannot be installed on any Mac OS later than Mojave. Windows-11 unknown compatability! Several functions in Lr6.14 now do not work- (Maps, Face recognition).

Activation reset (for maximum 2 installs) is becoming very difficult and can only be done by Adobe Staff via a Chat box. You need to be logged in and allow cookies in your Browser. You must ask ONLY for “Activations Reset”. If you ask for “Support” there is no answer.

thanks for the replies.

It's not that Adobe is a company that cannot afford hosting a 1G file. This is clearly a manouver to force people into the monthly plans! I bought a perpetual license. Adobe's position on not hosting the bits and making difficult to reactivate is really shameful in my opinion.
