I have two computers an old one and a newer one.

 

Both were online and working fine with Lightroom Classic.

 

However, I took the older computer offline (disconnected from the internet) and now when I want to use the Develop Module on the old computer, I get an error message saying that Lightroom is deactivated and I need to purchase a subscription or license! But, I have one!

 

How do I work around this and get Lightroom back to functioning properly on my old computer???

 

Thanks,

Bob

 

Some day I will move all of those files over to the new computer, but for now i just want to cull and edit around 100 images.

You have to connect the old computer to the internet every 30 days to check if the license is valid.

Thanks,

Well that's not good!

 

So the bigger question would be....


Then how do I bring all of my old images and and catalogs to my newer computer?

 

Thanks in advance,

Oh, and I forgot to add that they are spread over several hard drives, albeit all (hard wired) connected to the old computer. (i.e.) no mobile drives.

 

Thanks

Have you signed in in LR classic on the old computer. You need to sign it after a long time away from internet.

It's possible to copy the catalog and the images to another drive As well as all the images and move them to a new computer. Do you have an external drive that you could use for that purpose? You don't need the Lightroom program to do that.
