Will Adobe Elements work on a computer that is NOT connected to the internet?

    Yes, but you must let it go online one time to activate itself or it will stop after 30 days. Aside from that, in PSE 11 the only thing that requires an interet connection is anything in the album templates or the graphics panel that has a blue banner across one corner. Those items must be downloaded the first time you use them. After that they reside on your computer, whether you have an internet connection or not. In older versions of PSE it's anything with a blue or gold banner.

    Yes, it must contact adobe one time to send information about the computer on which it is installed. This is the case for all versions from PSE 8 onwards.


    EDIT Activation is a "silent" process. You have no way to interfere in it, for good or ill. There is no form to fill out, no number to type, so no, they can't give you an activation over the phone, I'm afraid.

    Yes, I'm afraid that's the situation. Personally, I think activation annoys legit users to no purpose while not stopping pirates for even 30 seconds, but that's not how adobe sees it, unfortunately.
