I have been waiting in an Adobe Support chat for 1:10 while he researches an answer to this question.

 

I just moved to a new iMac with Catalina.  I did do the update for LR Classic CC, but did not open it because I knew that I have not yet upgraded/updated my catelog that is on my old computer running High Sierra.  I noticed on the Support website that it is not recommended to open a catelog that is still release 7.5.

 

So what do I do?  If I upgrade the catelog while it is still on the old computer, will I be able to then open it on Catalina? Would it run without problems?  Should I not put Lightroom on the new computer?

 

I did move the current catelog to the new computer. If I click on it to open it will it launch the LR app and convert it to the new catelog update? Should I open the update and try to import it or open the catelog?

 

It is now 1:25 minutes.  Do you think the support person is still there?

"I did move the current catelog to the new computer. If I click on it to open it will it launch the LR app and convert it to the new catelog update?"

Yes. The "app" being Lightroom-CLASSIC!. You also need the photo files in the new computer. I presume you have copied them also!
