Win7 won't open with PSE 11 installed.

Feb 2, 2013 12:55 PM

I have been using PSE 7 for a few years.  I just bought PSE 11.  The PSE 11 instruction sheet said it is OK to have two versions installed at the same time.  I installed PSE 11.

I restarted the computer and Win7 wouldn't open.  I tried a couple of times and then opened Win7 in Safe Mode.  I used System Restore to eliminate PSE 11 and, and after a restart, Win7 opened normally (with PSE 7 still installed).

I uninstalled PSE 7 and restarted Win7 normally.  I installed PSE 11 and Win7 would not open.  I uninstalled PSE 11 and reinstalled PSE7 and Win7 is opening normally now.

Did I just waste a lot of money updating PSE?
