Where / how to download / activate old Photoshop Elements version (14)

Hello,

 

I have a physical disc of Photoshop Elements 14. However, my new computer does not have a disc drive. I tried to find a section with old versions on the website, but the only thing I found is the new Photoshop Elements 2021. I installed this version and tried to activate it with my Elements 14 code without any success. The serials don't even have the same length. I don't care about having the newest version for what I do with Photoshop (very basic use). I only want the software I purchased to work, nothing more. How should I proceed?

 

Thanks!

 

Phil

On a computer with a disk drive, copy the CD/DVD disk to a thumb drive, and install via USB on your new computer. If you are so inclined, you can purchase an external DVD drive and install via this medium. I have a couple of thumb drives which I used to transfer files from my old computer to a new one a few months ago.

Oh, nice 🙂 Didn't think it would be that easy!

 

I just copied-pasted the content of the disk on a computer with a disk drive like you said and it worked. I also found out my "real" serial number. It turns out that the number I was looking at was not the correct one.

 

Thanks for answering me!
