Hey everyone

i'v recently started photography and heard of lightroom.

i tried many time to install it on my computer but i kept getting an error message saying that i did not meet the minimum requirement.

Since i got a pretty solid computer, i went trought everything one by one and found out i need direct x 12 ( im at 11 right now).

the thing is from what i saw in my research you cant get direct x 12 on windows 7, its only for the latest windows.

so my question being : Is there a way, beside installing say windows 10, to get lightroom on my current windows 7 ?

thanks a lot 😃

Mathieu

Lightroom Classic runs fine on Windows 7. It's only the new cloud-native Lightroom CC app that requires Windows 10.

I have purchased adobe lightroom classic and running fine in my Windows 7 64 bit laptop from May 2021. Suddenly, it is saying develop module is disabled though I have active plan. Tried to sign out from lightroom nad sign in but its just opening a white window, nothing is there. Tried to download new adobe lightroom classic but its saying not compatible with Windows 7.

Hi Plantemath,

As Victoria has mentioned Lightroom Classic CC is compatible with Windows 7, check here for more info: Lightroom Classic CC system requirements

However, Lightroom CC is compatible with Windows 10.

Sahil

This is very irritating. I upgraded yesterday after using LR and PS daily on my Windows 7 machine. Now with the upgrade to the full suite, I am getting the "you need to license this software" message, and when I try to do that, I get the "your OS is not supported" message. Please help!

Check you've got your service packs updated and you're installing Lightroom Classic, not the new cloud-native Lightroom CC mg91055195
