I just downloaded and installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 & Adobe Premiere Elements 11 (Windows,English). When it starts up it stalls at the dialogue box "restoring people recognition data" 42%.
I have to close the program then the whole thing happens again.
Pretty frustrating for $150............... to upgrade from Elements 8
This seens to be a problem of Media Analysis which generally arises if there are too many/too large assets in your catalog.
Just try the following steps:-
1. Go to Edit->Preferences->Media Analysis
2 Go to People Recognition options
3. Uncheck the "Analyse Photo for People recognition".
4. Press "OK"
