1st, see if using Compatibility mode helps
Right click the program icon and select WinXP compatibility mode from the popup
If you have Win7 64bit PRO or higher, try Microsoft's Virtual XP
This is only ONE example of using Virtual XP http://forums.adobe.com/thread/702693
2nd, Things and Software to AVOID when authoring/burning a DVD... says Encore, but also applies to Premiere Elements and disc burning

Create an ISO (Encore) or folder on your hard drive (Encore or Premiere Elements) and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write files or folders or ISO to disc for DVD or BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)
Imgburn will read the ACTUAL disc brand from the disc, which is not always the same as the box label (Memorex is notorious for buying "anything" and putting it inside a Memorex box)
When you write to disc with Imgburn, use the SLOWEST possible speed setting, so your burner has the best chance to create "good, well formed" laser burn holes... since no DVD player is required to read a burned disc, having a "good" one from a high quality blank will help
Use Taiyo Yuden single layer or Verbatim Two layer Or Falcon Pro for inkjet printable Two layer
Thanks for putting me on the right path.
When going to switch the compatibility mode I did not have WinXP as an option. I had 7 and 4 different versions of Vista. Fortunately I was not totally blinded by frustration and noticed that Vista was selected. I switched it to 7 and I am burning a disk while typing this.
The mystery now is how it got switched - but I'll chalk it up to gremlins.

Interesting... I have Win7 64bit Pro, and when I right click a 32bit program icon and select properties and then compatibility, WinXP is one of the modes I see
But, as long as the program is now working, let's hope it doesn't "migrate" next Spring!
