Hello all,

Apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong section. I want to purchase LR5 but I need to use it on both Windows and MAC.

I bootload my iMac into Windows and would like to use LR5 on both Windows and OSX on the same computer.

I know LR5 allows 2 installations but if I've gathered correctly, it has to be the same platform. Unfortunately, this doesn't work for me.

I've talked to one of the sales guys on chat and also read a "staff" members post on this. Both said different things. So I'm a little confused about this.

I need 1 Windows and 1 Mac installation working ONLY 1 at a time. NOT at the same time.

Please if someone can help me definitively get an answer on this, it would be great.

I don't believe that is the case. Bothe the win and osx executables are in your Adobe download folder and you have codes for each.

Yes, that's fine. Most of Adobe's software used to be single-platform licenses, but Lightroom's always been cross-platform.
