Adobe Camera Raw 14 issue with Bridge and Photoshop Elements

Using Windows 10. I installed Bridge ver 11.1.0.175 (updated today), Photoshop Elements (PSE) 2021 (properly registered on Adobe), and Adobe Camera Raw 14 (ACR). When I attempt to open a photo in Bridge using ACR, I get the message, "Camera Raw editing is not enabled...  requires qualifying product has been licensed." I have read on this forum and elsewhere that Photoshop Elements is a 'qualifying product', so that is puzzling.

 

If I double click in Bridge to open the photo in PSE, it opens in ACR 13. If I go into PSE first, and click on 'Open in Camera Raw', it opens in ACR 13. How can I get it to open in ACR 14 from either PSE or Bridge? (Preferably Bridge if I have to choose between the two!) 

 

I've looked at numerous posts on the "Camera Raw editing is not enabled" theme, but didn't see this particular issue. Appreciate any assistance!

Bridge needs an Creative Cloud Application such as Photoshop CC ( 'qualifying product') in order for the Bridge ACR to work. Since photoshop elements is not part of the Creative Cloud Applications, thus not a 'qualifying product', it's not made to work with Adobe Bridge like photoshop cc is. However, you can get ACR 14.0 to work with pse 2021 by following the directions here: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/camera-raw-update-not-available.html

Not an Elements user but I'm pretty sure it uses a different 'version' (cripplied for Elements) than what you downloaded for Photoshop so I'm not suprised it doesn't run under Elements. 

You'll likely need to install Elements again so 'it's' proper version of ACR is now running.

That did the trick - it now shows as ACR 14, thank you! What I like is that it is such a simple process. What isn't so simple is knowing how in the first place, so I appreciate you sharing where to find the answer. 

 

While it now shows ACR 14, it is not the ACR I had available when I had a Ps subscription, but as pointed out by others, I guess that's the price I must pay for refusing to continue to rent software. 

 

Again, thanks for your help!
