If that old program won't install you need to tell Microsoft

 

Adobe did not change the program, so the Microsoft update is the cause of the problem

Oh my... so someone who bought the serial number Photoshop Elements because they didn't want to install the Cloud now must go ahead and install the Cloud to be able to use their serial number program

Yes, I was pretty surprised by that too @John T Smith.

 

I do wonder why a missing Cloud desktop app triggers a browser/operating system unsupported message from the Adobe installer though. This gets curiouser and curiouser.

At $52 dollars per month Adobe Creative Cloud is too expensive unless one is doing it professionally.  I want a cheaper option for someone who uses photoshop to tweak photos on occasion. I thought about changing to cheaper or free photo programs, but I like the rectangular marquee for cropping photos.  I have never found another program that has that feature.

But would that work with windows 11?  I saved money just buying the program (photoshop 2019) because I don't use it that much. I would eventually buy it subscription if I had to maybe, but I don't use any other programs in the creative cloud nor do I want to use them.

Win11 is very new and some people are having problems... if what you have now works, why change?

Tried this. Downloaded Adobe Creative Cloud twice and neither Photoshop Elements 2019 or Premier Elements 2019 will install. 😞

If you're running a modern Mac with Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey then it will never work due to the 32 bit installer used in Elements 2019. The new Mac operating systems only run 64 bit installers.

 

Otherwise, this is the first report I've seen in these forums where this has not worked on Windows 10 or 11.

 

Which operating system? Any error messages?

 

Have you tried uninstalling everything, including using the Cloud Cleaner Tool. Then tried reinstalling starting with the Cloud desktop app?

I'm running Windows 11 with 64 bit.  Have downloaded both the Adobe Photoshop and Elements 2019 exe files from Adobe. When I try to install, I get the following error consistently:

Update required

Your browser or operating system is no longer supported. You may need to install the latest updates to your operating system.

The only way round it is to first install the Cloud desktop app. Then install 2019.

 

You said earlier you've already tried that but it was unsuccessful?

I used the Adobe cleaner tool to unistall everything. Then reinstalled Creative Cloud. When I used the Open Sync Folder funtion found under the File tab at the top of the page, I was able to locate and install the Premier and Photoshop setup files and install the programs.  So finally, I am able to have access to the programs.  Thanks for the help!

None of the cloud stuff worked for us. What did work was downloading the 2021 installer then clicking on start free trial then going back and downloading the 2019 installer
