I purchased Elements 12 in 2013; I have the store receipt, box, discs, etc. Since that time, I've been using it without issue until last week when I suddenly received the message that my "trial was expired". Curious. I've tried licensing Elements again, without luck, and/or putting in the serial number. Any suggestions, please?

Is your computer exactly the same as in 2013 or have you updated your operating system?

 

What you are seeing MAY actually be a compatibility issue

 

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
