Need Lightroom 3 for using on XP laptop.

I am currently teaching an afterschool photography class for young children ages 3rd through 6th grades.

The facility has provide a laptop and projector for my use to display the students work from the previous week.

My problem is I am very familiar with Lightroom and currently am running the latest release version on my on desktop using Windows 7. The laptop is running Windows XP and I can not use my second copy of Lightroom 4 as you know it will not run under Windows XP.

How could I obtain a copy of Lightroom 3. I have every license key from Lightroom 1 through my current Lightroom 4, I just do not have the install files for Lightroom 3?

I have not tried contacting Adobe, perhaps that would be my best option.

Thanks, Floyd...

If you registered your copy of Lightroom 3 to your Adobe profile you will be able to redownload it.  If you didn't register it you should register it now and then you'll be able to download it.

Yes I see my Lightroom 3 order and serial number, however I see no means of downloading a copy of Lightroom 3. Am I missing something?

Thanks, I found the download link, now to see if it accepts my serial number and runs.

Downloaded from Adobe my original Lightroom 3.0. Someone at the Adobe forums sent a link to download version 3.6 which I also downloaded. It installed 3.6 on a XP machine and was not ask for a serial number. Now I just need to try on the laptop and I am not expecting any issues.

Thanks, Floyd...
