I currently use Elements 8. When I get a new computer this week I want to upgrade to Elements 10. What's the easiest way to do this? Shall I deactivate it on the old computer and then install and upgrade on the new one? (Note: I downloaded this product at purchase. I do not have a disc, but I do have the serial number.) Also, a reactivation link would be appreciated!
You do not need to have the old one installed on your computer before installing the new software, just the serial number. It can never hurt to deactivate the your old software.
If you purchase the upgrade from the Adobe store it is always a good idea to back it up to external media in case you need access to the software again. At the moment, Adobe does offer you the capability to re-download Adobe store downloads, but you never know when this and any other policy could change. Beside you could need to re-install when Adobe servers are down. You can never go wrong having a backup.
