Hi, I have lightroom 6 that I purchased the disc from Bestbuy. I just recently bought a new Macbook pro that does not have the disc drive. Does anyone know how I can get it on my new computer? Thanks!

With any 'new' Mac and the Catalina or BigSur OS- you cannot install Lightroom v6. The 32bit install cannot run. (End of the line!)

The same issue of Apple changing the OS is affecting many other users of obsolete software. eg. the Adobe Creative Suites CS6.

Photoshop CS6 & New Mac OS

All lovely in theory but I have a subscription and am having nothing but problems with both Lightroom and Photoshop. Small edits within LR [max three images] and then freezing followed by a full crash and restart. 

Adobe wants to blame Mac and Big Sur and Mac wants to blame Adobe. I'd just like to see a resolution.
