I have a brand new Microsoft Surface Pro X with an ARM processor and I cannot download Lightroom CC or Lightroom Classic. Will Adobe release a new version that will run on my PC soon?

This article from November 5, 2019 says, "Microsoft says that Adobe is committed to creating 64-bit ARM versions of its Creative Cloud apps, but there’s no timeline for when that’ll happen."

Thanks for sharing this article. I think I might have made a mistake with my purchase. I'm hoping that someone from Adobe will respond with a lead time...if there is one.

While it's possible Adobe may respond (and let's hope they do), unfortunately they rarely comment publicly about product plans.

I just ordered the Surface Pro X also, and am VERY anxiously awaiting to see which software company comes out with support first... I feel like Affinity Photo or Skylum may beat Adobe to ARM support. Whoever it is, it's going to be great to be able to mobile edit on a machine this thin and light!

Just bought the Surface pro X, photoshop works great and indesign aswell for a smal formfactor. I really would love to see lightroom to be the same.
