hi there, does the new version of light room work with windows 8.1.?
Also if you purchase a license key can you put it onto (2) pc's or do you need to purchase separate licence key's and how long do you have the license key, is it only for 12months?

Various versions of LR work with Windows 8.1 including LR 6. Windows 10 will be out in a month or so but no one has the final version so we can't say how well or not it works, probably it'll mostly work, although there are usually driver issues for old hardware.

One license allows installing on up to two computers.

A serial-number-licensed LR 6 is not time-limited.

A CC-login-licensed LR CC 2015 (the same program as LR 6) except it has new features, sooner, like Dehaze, will work as long as you keep paying. The CC plan is monthly for a year.
