A few years ago (I believe 2017) I purchased Adobe Premiere Elements 15 and the license key worked fine. After that I didn't use it for 1,5 years.
Now it does not work anymore.
Does someone know if a license key for Adobe Premiere Elements 15 expires after one year...? Or if Adobe changed my perpetual license into a subscription without notice?

This a a Photoshop Forum.
I believe Adobe Premiere Elements is a bundle of Photoshop, VideoEditor, etc while I couldn't find a forum with that name...but ok.
Elements is perpetually licensed not subscription. If your license key is not working then you may need to contact customer care.
I'll move your post to the Elements forum.
Thanks for the links.
Will my existing license key for Premiere Elements 15 work when I download the new version Premiere Elements 19?
There should be a way to either keep using v15 or use my perpetual license key for v19 if it's not subscription based.
Thanks in advance,
I don’t use PE (you posted originally to PS), but following the link I gave you, it looks like the upgrade price is $79.99.
The specs for PE 2019 are here:
Yes, you should be able to use your existing version if it meets system requirements. Sometimes a new operating system makes older software stop working.
Hmmm...strange...I was on Windows 10 at the time already....
A couple things to remember about Premiere Elements....
-If you are wanting to stay current, it goes on sale for about $60 about twice a year.
-It is apparently not a design goal to keep it backward comparable. Projects started in older versions may not open without error in newer versions.
-The newest versions have reduced optical disk burning capability. DVDs and BDs are becoming a thing of the past.
-The newest version may have audio difficulty with older operating systems.
Correction: just found out that Premiere is just the video editing part indeed...
