Hi Bernhardm75899190,

Sorry about the confusion, Lightroom CC and Lightroom 6 are same in terms of usage. Lightroom 6 is license version however Lightroom CC is a subscription. As you have mentioned you updated your Lightroom 6 to Lightroom CC and now it only gives you a trial version, to correct this issue please follow the steps shared in the following help document: How to convert a Lightroom CC trial to Lightroom 6.

Let us know if this helps.

Clearly, this "confusion" and in-software "update" was intentional and all it did was to get everyone to hate Adobe more about the standalone "update".  I have been getting runaround links for 4 hours trying to simply get the latest update to my standalone 6 software.  I DO NOT WANT ANY SUBSCRIPTION OR ANY TRIAL CC.   I went back to a download when Adobe did this before with the CC update and got back to my standalone but now it shows version 6.0 and even when I do the "update" link in the software, it shows that I am up to date.   Clearly .... I am NOT.    So, where do I find it?

Yes, and all the CC 2015 Mac updates are here:

Also, as an aside – what happened wasn't intentional on Adobe's part, and they've addressed the issue quickly as well as apologized:

http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2017/10/lightroom-classic-cc-7-0-1.html

"We understand we sent perpetual customers down a path of subscribing to a trial version of the new Lightroom Classic CC last week, replacing already installed versions of Lightroom 6.

The good news is we fixed this issue and wanted to get a quick release out to immediately address your concerns.  Now once you click on the 'Update' button next to Lightroom Classic CC, you will see under the Advanced Options, the 'Remove old versions' is unchecked by default.  As a result, you can try out Lightroom Classic CC for the trial period and still keep Lightroom 6 running in tandem on your desktop. 

We sincerely apologize for not providing a better user experience for our perpetual customers to try out Lightroom Classic CC while still keeping Lightroom 6 in place.  This was a mistake on our end.  Please let us know if you are experiencing any additional issues with this process moving forward."

Any software that defaults to nuking your existing software during an "upgrade" is user-hostile*.  Period.

Even the much maligned Windows 10 creates a nifty backup folder by default, allowing you to roll back within 30 days if/when things go south.

Let that sink in...

Some light reading in case you need to have both your personally licensed Lightroom 6 co-exist with the rest of the CC (rental) offerings.  (pssst--short answer is that you can't-if CC touches your system it gobbles up your stand-alone software and joyfully converts it to CC)

Want both LR6 Personal and Creative Cloud licenses to co-exist
