Hi,

I recently found an old version of Elements 9 that I had forgotten about. Is it still possible to use and update that with High Sierra? It installed from the DVD and generally works (Organizer crashes though). However, the update process generally fails for Camera RAW and Elements and crashes after. Any idea? 

If it won't work, is there a way to upgrade it to the recent version or is it basically buying it from scratch?

Last but not least, would I be able to make it work on a WIN10 machine or is it the same scenario there?

Thanks,

Peter

Peter, 1. I have PSEv.8 working on WIN 10. I do not have PSEv.9 in order to test it. Install it on your machine  - nothing to lose. 2. Forget about using this old version on a Mac 3. If you purchase the current version of PE from Adobe, they may give you a discount as a repeat customer. However, shop around in the big box stores & Amazon, as you may find a better price.

My Elements 9 will not run on my Mac OS Big Sur version 11.2.1. How can I update this version to run on Mac OS Big Sur?
