Hi,

 

I hope somebody can assist me. I have a new Windows 10 computer with no DVD drive and I own an older  DVD copy of Adobe Premier Elements, how would I go about installing my previously purchased copy?

That version is so old that I don't think Adobe will have a download available

 

Buy an external DVD drive from Amazon for "about" $25 dollars

That is correct.  There is no download.

I have one that I use for old discs and it is worth the investment (but not for Premiere Elements 3).

thank you everyone, really appreciate the feedback I had previously borrowed my neighbors external drive and tried to load, I can't recall but something or some error stopped me from being able to download 3.0. It sounds like I should either buy a new version off the shelf at Best Buy or something like that or sign up for a subscription of a new version on the Adobe website? what would everyone recommend?

You were not downloading, which is "copying" a file from an Internet location to your computer

 

You were installing by putting your disc in the borrowed drive

 

That version is so old that it will most likely not run on Win10

Two ideas that MAY work to install and/or run old programs in Windows 10
-RIGHT click the program icon or EXE and select a compatibility mode in the pop up option window
-and/or select Run as Administrator to assign FULL Windows permissions
-also https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/create-local-administrator-account-windows.html

 

The latest version will run on Win10 http://www.adobe.com/products/elements-family.html

Premiere Elements is still a one time payment, not by subscription.

Yes, you should.  You can also buy it from Adobe as a download.

You will not be able to properly run that on Windows 10.

I tried Premiere Elements 3.0.1 and the mpeg encoder won't be available.

You also will not likely to be able to use footage from many phones as well as some newer cameras.
