Lightroom 6: Question about sign-in/activation

Bought Lightroom 6 upgrade; it would not load until I accepted the CC desktop app. There were no download and install directions with LR 6 upgrade that explained (a) CC app came with it or (b) why CC app was mandatory

I do not want CC, do not intend to use it. I thought I would purchasing just stand alone LR 6.

Since LR would not load without the CC app, will deleting the app affect my LR in any way? I am hesitant to delete it

The CC App sign-in is how Adobe enforces the LR 6 licensing restriction of it being used on a maximum of two computers. So I wouldn't remove the CC App if I were you. The important thing is that you're not having to pay monthly to license LR, you just have to sign in with your AdobeID, now, after having entered the serial number.

Thanks for the fast reply. Good thing I asked first before taking action. Now I will just delete the short cuts off my desktop.
