after spending hours of investigation, here is my solution. I decided to write it down. Maybe it is of help for someone else.
Suddenly, when I wanted to use PSE10 and clicked the desktop icon, I got the error message that the EXE file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Elements 10 Organizer\Photoshop Elements 10.0.exe"
is not there anymore. I have not figured out why it was gone though. Maybe some magic MSI rollback script stuff from another installation.
I tried a normal deinstallation/installation procedure.
After looking into "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\PSE10Setup.log", I found out that the system thinks that the organizer seems to be installed, but it was not.
The required file were not in place.
So I tried to force the manual installation of organizer MSI package.
msiexec /i "E:\Adobe Photoshop Elements 10\ElementsOrganizer\Elements 10 Organizer.msi" TRANSFORMS=1031.mst ELEMENTS_DE_DE=1 ORGANIZER_DE_DE=1 STARTWATCHSERVICE=1 SUPPRESSREBOOT=0 NOT_STANDALONE=1 /l*v "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\OrganizerInstall.log"
This worked for me. All the required files are in place now as they should and PSE10 starts as usual again.
The PSE10 Editor always worked without any problems. Only the organizer was gone. Installing PremiereElements10 also did not help, although it is also supposed to install the organizer.
This is my second big issue with the Adobe Elements Software Package. I have never experienced so much trouble with software installation as with this piece of software.
I suggest that the developers should test there software a lot more with respect to installation/reinstallation and uninstallation.
To the support team: please do not write answers like: please reinstall the software or the Windows OS or ... or..... or.....
