I just did a trial install for Premiere Elements. It seemed to work and I ended up with a new app in the Applications folder. I can bring up the main screen that has thee options for organizers, photoshop elements, or Premiere Elements. Clicking "organizer" works. Clicking "edit video" does nothing. A message pops up saying it is loading the video edit workspace but it never does load.
Also in the Application folder is the editor app "Adobe Premiere Elements.app" (a 2.28GB app bundle) but clicking this does nothing. Looks like it tries to load then fails silently.
I understand you are unable to launch Premiere Elements on macOS. Though the latest version should work on macOS 10.13, yet it is recommended to update your OS to avoid any malfunctions or performance glitches. Have you considered updating your OS to the latest version?
This Mac is running the last version of MacOSthat can run on the hardware. Apples' "automatic update" is enabled. In fact just today Apple released a new version of 10.13 and I just rebooted after installing it. STILL the same problem Adobe Premiere Elements silently crashes.
I think that possibly the statement that Adobe Premiere Elements runs on Macos 10.13 is not correct.
Updating the hardware will make sense AFTER the transition to ARM-based Macs is over and Adobe (and Microsoft and others) have products that run on the new ARM based macs.
My real question is how to debug this and get Elements to run on a Mid 2011 iMac with 10.13.
One option I will try is downgrading to an earlier version of Adobe Premiere Elements. Perhaps from 2019 or 2016.
