Good day, I bought lightroom 6 a few years ago online (install CD) and i have lost the box it came in that had the serial number on it.  I still have the install CD and need to install the program on my new laptop but dont know what the serial number is.  I have looked in all files and folders on my old laptop and cant find any serial number.  I never registered on adobe which i regret.  Any advise on how to obtain my serial number?

Lightroom 6 EOL  in December 2017 and is not supported.

Try this link, however I think you are out of luck not having registered nor kept documentation.

Under About Lightroom on your old computer you might be able to see your serial number; the link above shows how you can decode the ***** starred out number.   Best yet: fergit aboudit and get the new SAAS CC version as it is so inexpensive.

When you installed Lightroom 6 it would automatically register the serial # with the Adobe ID (email address) you used to log in with at the time of installation. It's not associated with the email address you've used to log in here. Are there any other email addresses you might have used? Try logging into Adobe.com to your account with different email addresses you might have used to try and track down the serial #.

Thank you, you were right we found it under another email linked to a adobe account :) even though the lightroom program says its linked to another email account.  Weird but just glad we found it
