I have Windows 7. While trying to install Lightroom 6 that I just bought new, it keeps saying "please connect to the internet and retry" (just as it did when I tried to do the trial version) but I am connected. I checked the firewall and it seems to be fine for letting the program through. Clock is set properly. Getting extremely frustrated as I don't have all day to go through pages trying to find answers and to say the least, I am NOT well versed in computer lingo, etc.

I was able to solve this problem for Adobe Premier Pro CS6 installation on Win7.
It was caused by Adobe/Microsoft moving early 2021 to a new network protocol TLS 2.1
I wrote it up for forums:
For those stumbling across (typically me who is inpapable of deactivating a CS6 suite installed on a 2017 Retina iMac), this is TLS 1.2 that surfboy501 meant and not 2.1 (such a thing doesn't even exist yet). Now how to ensure that Adobe deactivation process is properly using TLS 1.2 under MacOS? Hmm, that's the big question.
