I purchased "Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 & Adobe Premiere Elements 12" in 2013 for my Windows based Notebook computer, Then, in 2017 I purchased a iMac, I decided to install this Photoshop elements & premiere elements on my Mac today and it won't install, it says "Install.app” needs to be updated"and I need to contact the developer.

Would you have a solution for that.

1st, you may not install a Windows program on a Mac

 

2nd, even if you have the Mac version it is too old to install on a newer Mac

 

You need to buy the current version... buy the disc at Amazon so you have both versions

I do have both Versions, but, you say it is too old, meaning if I buy the
newer version and in a few years decide to buy a new Mac, the current
version will be too old and I will have to buy the current version again?
Is this what you mean???

Every time Apple makes a major change to the Mac operating system SOME number of old programs stop working

 

Your version 12 is 32bit and current Mac operating systems are 64bit and will not run 32bit programs

 

If you buy the current 2022 versions they SHOULD keep working for several years... but that is only if Apple does operating system upgrades that allow for old programs

 

There is no way that anyone here can tell you what Apple is going to do in the future

 

But, yes, it MAY happen that a future Mac will not run the current 2022 versions

This is not a good solution, again the consumer has to pay to fix the
corporations problems.
I have other older programs that updated automatically to install
themselves and they work very well, but, they are not ADOBE, go figure.

Not a happy consumer

It's not a problem for the corporations. This is their plan and Adobe are delighted that Apple break their old apps of course. So, YES, every time you upgrade MacOS or get a new Mac you need a budget for all new apps. It's part of the Joy Of Mac.

Adobe does not go back and update old programs for new operating systems

 

If you want to keep using an old program do not upgrade your operating system

>I have other older programs that updated automatically

 

Programs do not update automatically, the author must rewrite the program to make it work on new operating systems

 

Once upon a time I had Windows XP and Microsoft Office 97 - both the same company, not as here where Adobe and Apple are different companies

 

When Micorsoft came out with Windows 7 on the new computer I bought my perfectly good Office 97 would not work... it would not even install... so I had to buy a new version of Office

 

Microsoft COULD have updated Office 97 but the only response I got was keep WinXP to use that old version

 

Adobe also does not go back and update old programs when Apple changes their operating system
