Abobe Premiere Elements 10 Will Not Open

Dec 2, 2012 6:50 PM

Tags: #launch_failure

I checked the forum and could not come up with a solution to my issue. I have a Dell XPS. I loaded Elements 10 via the 2nd disk due to my Windows 7 operating system. When I attempt to open the application, nothing happens. Here are the steps I have taken based on the articles and forum feedback:


  1. Uninstalled and reinstalled the application
  2. Performed Windows Update
  3. Performed driver updates
  4. Performed Disk Clean Up
  5. Performed Defrag
  6. disabled firewall and anitvirus software


I do not get a error message. I have 3GB of physical memory left.


Thank you,

    >3GB of physical memory left


    I think you may be confused by terms, and I **KNOW** that I am confused by what you wrote


    Memory is ram... so how much ram do you have installed, and which version of Windows 7 do you have?


    What you wrote "sounds" like you are talking about hard drive space... how many hard drives (you should have 2 for video editing) and how much free space on each?


    Glossary of Terms to help w/communication

    When you say you installed "via your second disk drive" you don't mean you installed any place other than your C drive, do you? The program will only work when installed on your C or main drive.

    All versions of Premiere... Elements and Pro... require FULL access to ALL computer resources... which means using an Administrator account

    I only have my Adminsitrator account, and have never had any issues with any of my Adobe programs - all work perfectly from that account.


    I would create a new Administrator account (not just an account with administrative privileges), and test.


    Good luck,
