I had to reinstall my syatem on my IMAC and Photoshop Elements would not work correctly after reinstalling the system. I deleted it and tried reinstalling it from my disk. I dod not remember the User name I used but I did put in the correct serial # as I had written it on my disk. How do I get it to install without the correct username?
PSE doesn't require your adobe ID. If you're having problems with the welcome screen nagging you, just go into the applications folder and launch the editor and/or organizer and then click the dock icon and choose Keep in Dock. Then launch it from there in the future. You don't say which version of PSE, but the editor is in Applications>Adobe Photoshop Elements>Support Files for the past couple of versions.
If you mean your photoshop.com account, that would be migrated to adobe revel, so there's no direct connection to photoshop.com anymore from within PSE.
Or are you having a problem with your serial number being rejected? If so, what is the error message?
I solved my problem. It was the user name that was giving me the problem and it occurred to me after 4 hours of trying to install my Photoshop Elements that I have NO User Name on my computer! So, I left it blank and it worked. Stupid me!!
