Hello Everyone,

I am having trouble installing PSE 2020 on a brand new Win 10 Home 64 bit version 1909 computer.

I downloaded the installer from my Adobe account.

On the first 3 attempts the installer became stuck at various percentages of installation - 42%, 14%, 9%.

I did a Windows System Restore to just before the first attempt.

Subsequent attempts now result in "Error 501" saying Photoshop Elements cannot be installed now with no other details as to why.

I Googled Error 501 and it tells me that a resource that the installer needs to modify is currently used by another app and to check the PSE installation log file to see which app to close.

I cannot find the log file anywhere.  

Can someone please advise where it is located?

Computer Details:

Win 10 Home 64 bit version 1909

CPU: Intel core i7 9th Gen

RAM: 16GB

Video card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB dedicated video memory

PSE installation is onto a SSD.

Can anyone please advise on how to fix this installation issue?

Any help or suggestions much appreciated,

David
