Hi, 

I have recently upgraded adobe lightroom 4.2 via the CC updater on my mac.

Why does my mac app store ask me to update to 4.2 when i have already updated? How can I stop this happening? 

thanks,

Joe

Have you tried turning off you phone and starting it again? If you tap update again what happens?

Perhaps because v4.2 is 'Lightroom-Desktop' for PC and Mac computers, for which you need a subscription from Adobe for the 'Lightroom Plan'.

I believe that the Mac App Store only has the Mobile version of Lr for phones & iPads..

Did you originally purchase the plan from Adobe or the Mac App Store?

 

I have 4.2 installed via the Creative Cloud App but in the Mac App Store it just says 'GET'.

 

From what I've read, it's quite difficult to disable the App Store Notifications (if that's the issue).


It may be worth posting on the Feedback forum, which is monitored by the engineering team who may be able to look into it.

thanks for response. 

I have an active CC licence and have always got my adobe apps via the CC.

...but your answer has made me think... I wonder if I accetentlay downloaded via the macos app store on top of my CC installation? 

If i have done that, i probably need to delete the app from my mac, then re-install ONLY from CC and i'll end up having the same option on the mac app store as you have - 'get' - and i must resist the temptaiton to click it again!!

I'll update the forum with how I get on when I have time to do this - it's a minor irritation so I can live with it for a wee while. 

thanks again,

Joe
