Hi All,

I have been using LR6 official standalone version for several years - and I am fine to continue as is.

However, since the introduction of CC Manager and the like, I am having problems.

Now, I cannot launch it at all. The popup requires to install Adobe Application Manager to start my trial!

Well, this is not a trial but a legitimate copy. And I have this AAManager installed - but nothing has changed.

How can I make it work?

I could not find an answer in the forum. If I missed it - pls send me the link.

Thanks.

What CC Manager?

If you are taliking about the Creative Cloud Desktop App then you need to uninstall that and NEVER EVER install it again.

 

Lr V6 does not use ANY Features offered in the CC Desktop App.

 

Not sure why you installed it in the first place.

Creative Cloud Manager. I had it installed because other Adobe apps insisted on that. Now, today, it has been replaced with Adobe Creative Cloud - because this is what the pop-up requires when I try to launch LR6. 

 

Now I have this new Adobe thing installed, but the popup that has requested it persists:

"Adobe Lightroom

 

Adobe Application Manager, required to start your trial, is missing or damaged.

 

Please download a new copy of Adobe Application Manager from

HTTP://www.adobe.com/go/applicationmanager." 

 

Is there a way to just launch the LR6?

As I recall, you did need to have some version of the Adobe Creative Cloud app installed in order to use LR 6 (I think all it did was check the license was valid and not in use on more than 2 machines).

 

I would re-install the version of this app that came with LR 6.

Are you on Windows or Mac, and if on Mac, which version? LR 6 / 2015 won't run Mac OS 15 (Catalina) or later.

I am on Win 10. This LR6 worked some time ago, probably before Adobe forced me to update one of its mandatory Creative Assistants or whatever is the name now.

I run LR 6.14 on my Windows 10 computer side by side with the Creative Cloud desktop application, LR 10.0, LR 8.2.1, and a bunch of other Creative Cloud apps.   I don't have the Adobe Application Manager installed.

 

To build on dj_paige's suggestion, you could try completely uninstalling all Adobe software on your computer with the Creative Cloud cleaner tool:

Then install the Creative Cloud desktop app:

Then download and serialize LR 6.14 following the instructions here closely:

Then use the Creative Cloud desktop app to reinstall any other CC apps you want.
