What are you trying to click on to install the software? What is the file name?
Only Photoshop Elements 10 and 11 have been tested with Windows 8.
The file downloads to the desktop titled adobe- pe8 1.6 GB with the image of a blank page, no logo or anything else, ( takes about 8 minutes).It is a file not a folder. and the properties indicate it is indeed 1.6GB
Problem is I cannot go any further to open it, it is not zipped, and there is no choice to 'run' it ,or open an 'executable' to start a setup procedure .Upon double
clicking or right clicking the icon, all I get is "what program do you want to use to open this file" from the computer, and a pop up list many of my loaded programs, non of which a applicable.
According to the Windows compatability site Elements 8 should play nice with Windows 8.
The same thing is happening on my other Win 7 computer so I imagine the whole file is corrupt or not being sent properly by Wacom who still has it on their server in my chosen "bundled software" from when I purchased the Intuos 4 tablet.I might take it up with wacom and see if they might know what's going on.
I have loaded many many programs over the years both as downloads and from CDs, and never experienced a problem like this with any of them.

This is obviously not an executable file; something must have happened during the download. The file extension should be .exe, .zip, or 7z.
I suggest that you download the installer from http://technolux.blogspot.jp/2011/02/adobe-direct-download-links-less-akamai.html and use your serial number for the installation.
Make sure that you follow the download instructions some two pages down from the top; the list of download links start some additional two pages down.
Thanks so much Pat.
I thought there had to be something wrong with the file.
I'll give it a try tonight and see if it is successful!
