I have a serial number for Lightroom 1, I got this as I had purchased RawShooter and Adobe bought Rawshooter and provided license for Lightroom 2 to Rawshooter license holders.

I had installled Lightroom 1 (upgraded through 1.4) but was not impressed. I have been using (and been very happy with) DPP ever since. I realize that LR is now a mature app and want to give it another run.

The LR 1 license provides an upgrade path, my question is on installation. I do not have the old version of LR installed, is it safe to assume that I will be prompted for a qualifying serial number during the install that will allow the install of the latest version 3.x to complete?

I poked around the Adobe site and did a quick search here and on Google but didn't find a specific answer, Thanks for the help!

From LR release notes on http://kb2.adobe.com/c​ps/845/cpsid_84570.htm​l (external link)

"Install your software
If you have a previous version of Lightroom on your computer, or a trial version, you do not need to remove it before installing Lightroom 3...

"Serial numbers
1.You can find the 24-digit serial number (e.g. 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000) on the back cover of your CD holder. Online or Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) customers can find the serial number both on the receipt page from the online store and in the e-mail confirmation you received. You will be asked for this number when installing Photoshop Lightroom.
2.If you purchased an upgrade license you will also need to enter a Lightroom 1 or Lightroom 2 serial number. This is not required if Lightroom 1 or Lightroom 2 is already successfully licensed on the current computer.

Wonder how it will work if I want to upgrade from Lightroom 3.6 to 4 when its fully released. Would I have to purchase or be able to upgrade.

I hope it'll be the same way as always. I've only paid for it one time (version 2) and updated all the way to it's current release version.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I hope so too. Lightroom 3.5 is the first one I installed. I upgraded to 3.6 since its an upgrade to the same version. So I was curious to know since Lightroom 4 is a completely new version. I hope what you say is true and stays the same. Thanks.

Dot upgrades are always free (3.x to 3.x+1). Version upgrades are always purchased (LR3 to LR4). Version upgrades cost less than new installations.

To go from any 3.x version to 4.x you will have to purchase the upgrade - typically $99 in the US.
