>3GB of physical memory left
I think you may be confused by terms, and I **KNOW** that I am confused by what you wrote
Memory is ram... so how much ram do you have installed, and which version of Windows 7 do you have?
What you wrote "sounds" like you are talking about hard drive space... how many hard drives (you should have 2 for video editing) and how much free space on each?

Thank you, John Smith, for clarifying the additional information needed.
I am using the Windows 7 Home Premium version on the 64-bit operating system.
I have 6 MB or RAM installed.
I have two hard drives: one has 223GB and the other 213GB free.
Additionally, I have a NVIDIA GeoForce GT 420M video card.
Hopefully this is helpful.
When you say you installed "via your second disk drive" you don't mean you installed any place other than your C drive, do you? The program will only work when installed on your C or main drive.
okay...we are getting somewhere. My challenge needs to be approached differently than your above direction based on this new information.
I have two Administrator accounts on my login screen. One shows "Administrator" the other shows my name (below my name shows "Administrator").
I have been logging in, as normal, under my name. When I do this, Elements does not work; however, when I log in under the "Adminstrator" Elements does work!!
All versions of Premiere... Elements and Pro... require FULL access to ALL computer resources... which means using an Administrator account
To test your theory, I opened a new user profile called Guest. This user profile has access to Premiere elements 10. So, it appears that only my profile does not have access. Any ideas?
I only have my Adminsitrator account, and have never had any issues with any of my Adobe programs - all work perfectly from that account.
I would create a new Administrator account (not just an account with administrative privileges), and test.
