I need assistance and guidance in installing my already purchased Lightroom Version 5 (registration 2015) onto my new macbook pro. I already have it installed on my iMac, but my iMac is older and running slower now and I want to move Lightroom to my newer laptop. I have called Lightroom support and they directed me to post in here for assistance.

Is there anyone that can assist with this? I checked and I have Lightroom 6.14. I tried downloading it directly from my account with Adobe and it said this downloader is no longer available.

You can get the download of 6.14 from this link: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/lightroom-6-end-of-support.html

 

Note that you will not be able to install 6.14 on a Mac which is running one of the Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey versions of MacOS, which I assume the new MBP will be using (the 6.14 install process has some 32-bit elements, which cannot be run on those operating system versions). However, if you use the Migration Assistant to port the already-installed version of 6.14 from your iMac to your new MBP, that should allow you to use it on your new system. If you ever need to do a re-install though, you'll not be able to do that on the MBP.

If your new Mac uses any recent OS (eg. Catalina, Monterey) then you will not be able to install v6 (or v5).

Lightroom 6 End of Support

About 2019 Apple ended support for 32bit software (the v5 & 6 installers are 32bit).

You new Mac will require a subscription to the Photography Plan 20GB for Lightroom-Classic, and you get Photoshop , in the Plan. $9.99 PHOTOGRAPHY PLAN (USA) 

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.0.1 Photoshop 24.0.1, ACR 15.0, Lightroom 6.0, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0, Windows-11.
