I just purchased a subscription for LR. After I paid I got an error saying I needed to update my computer. I have not been able to find HOW and there is no one to email so I am posting here. I am anxious to get started and am VERY disappointed right about now. Could someone PLEASE help? How do I know where to look? How to update? How to see if I have an earlier version stashed somewhere on my Mac? I would very much appreciate help at this point. Thank you!!

"I am anxious to get started and am VERY disappointed right about now."

 

We can all understand that, but the problem here is really Apple, not Adobe. In order to accommodate new MacOS policies and protocols, the application has to be rewritten, and then it suddenly doesn't work on the old MacOS versions.

 

Apple deliberately drops legacy support for anything at any moment. That's their business model. You have to keep up. It does tend to accelerate new technology adaptation, which I suppose you could make a case for. But as a user, you can't jump off the train. You have to be on board. Upgrade one component, and the others have to follow.
