I've got a problem with Lightroom 6. The problem is the next:
I've purchased Lightroom 6. License type: Perpetual.
When I install the update (any of 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 6.5) after it changes the type of my license. It becomes - License: Creative Cloud.
I've reinstalled Windows (I've got Windows 7 Ultimate x64), with no more software. Downloaded distributives from --
Installed all again - and again changed the type of license.
I created second Adobe ID (empty), installed LR signed in with this ID. Again nothing helped
What's the reason ?

Please help

You said you have "the Volume Type of Perpetual license", which explains everything. Lr treats the Volume Type of perpetual license as having the same entitlements as CC license.
