Good afternoon everyone,

I have been searching through the discussions and haven't been able to find anything that looks similar to my issue.
I have two standalone networks of computers that are for training purposes. One network is a Virtualization setup with thin clients and the other is comprised of laptops and a file server. Both networks have no internet connectivity.

I need to install Lightroom 6 on these two networks. My work has purchased a couple of licenses as a trial to make sure this will work.

Can LR 6 be installed and activated with a separate license key? If so, how do I get it?
Can LR 6 be installed on a system using VMware and run on the thin clients?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Best,

Rob

This can't be the first time someone has built a LAB environment that doesn't touch the internet. I can certainly call in and provide software serial numbers to Adobe if that is the norm.
