    FAQ: Installing Elements 10, or What do all these disks do?

    Brett N Adobe Employee

      When you purchase Photoshop and/or Premiere Elements 10 as a boxed product, you get a fair number of disks. The main reason for this is that a boxed product purchase of Elements is dual platform, that is, it's for both Windows and Macintosh.

       

      When dealing with a Photoshop and Premiere Elements combo purchase, you get 5 disks. Here is what they all do:

       

      • Disk 1 = Installs the 32-bit version of Premiere Elements 10 and Photoshop Elements 10 on Windows
      • Disk 2 = Windows 7 64-bit installer (skip Disk 1 if this is your OS). Installs the 64-bit version of Premiere Elements 10 and Photoshop Elements 10  (32-bit)
      • Disk 3 = Installs Premiere Elements 10 and Photoshop Elements 10 on Mac
      • Disk 4 = Installs Premiere Elemenst Content (DVD themes, menus, titles, etc.) for Windows
      • Disk 5 = Installs Premiere Elemenst Content (DVD themes, menus, titles, etc.) for Mac

       

       

      When working with Photoshop Elements only, you have 3 disks. Here is what they do:

       

      • Disk 1 = Installs the 32-bit version of Photoshop Elements 10 on Windows. Also includes a trial installer for Premiere Elements 10
      • Disk 2 = Installs a trial 64-bit version of Premiere Elements 10 for 64-bit versions of Windows 7
      • Disk 3 = Installs Photoshop Elements 10 on Mac. Also includes a trial installer for Premiere Elements 10

       

      And finally, when using Premiere Elements only, you have 5 disks. Here is what they do:

       

      • Disk 1 = Installs the 32-bit version of Premiere Elements 10 on Windows. Also includes a trial installer for Photoshop Elements 10
      • Disk 2 = Installs the 64-bit version of Premiere Elements 10 for 64-bit versions of Windows 7
      • Disk 3 = Installs Premiere Elements 10 on Mac. Also includes a trial installer for Photoshop Elements 10
      • Disk 4 = Installs Premiere Elemenst Content (DVD themes, menus, titles, etc.) for Windows
      • Disk 5 = Installs Premiere Elemenst Content (DVD themes, menus, titles, etc.) for Mac
