I have, somewhat reluctantly, decided to move over to LR CC from LR 6.12 on a Windows 10 system. I will also want to use LR Mobile on an Android phone.

I recall that some people have reported having problems when they tried to do this and so I wondered if anyone has any tips that might minimise the risk of hitting these problems. For example, should I uninstall LR 6 first?

It has been some time since I made the switch (then it was called LR5). All i did was install the Adobe Application Manager and IF it asked to install a fresh copy of LR, I let it. IIRC, AAM simply took over the license of the existing copy of LR.
