How to deactivate and uninstall PSE 8?

Apr 17, 2013 4:22 PM

Tags: #deactive

I had a hard disk problem so my PSE * install point is not the same now as it was during initial installation. Also I tried to use it on an old laptop which is no longer available to me. I suspect that my current installation now counts as the 3rd and I cannot deactivate.


I have PSE 9 and PSE 11 installed and working just fine, I want to free some space and remove PSE 8.


Any advice?

    You will need to contact activation support:



    Often you can start a chat session in that window and get it straightened out right then.

    Go back again. There are some real idiots there, but nobody else can fix this. You're in a user to user forum here, and we're just other customers like you. You'll just have to keep trying till you find someone who knows what they're doing.
