I have had to replace my laptop computer after losing everything installed on it. My backups were also lost. The only information that I can now find for my copy of Photoshop Elements are my serial code and and the purchase date in December 2016. With the little information that I have am I able to gain access to download the software again to install on my new laptop or do I need to purchase a current version?
If this does not work, suggest that you contact Adobe directly. Note that they may tell you that your version is no longer suppoerted. Make it clear to the functionary that you wish to obtain a download link.
