Did you purchase Premiere Elements 10 Mac from Adobe or from the Mac Store?
Premiere Elements 10 is no longer the current version so I am not sure just how much support you will get from Adobe T/S.
If this were a typical "activation" issue, Adobe Chat would be the one to contact. But this is not a typical "activation" issue as I see it. It targets installation.
The Premiere Elements Forum here would seem a logical place to post your question, but the result will depend on someone seeking your post who has been there and done what you are trying to do specific to
Attempting to install PRE from a Remote drive on an older iMac to a new iMac.
Do you no longer have the installation disc used for Premiere Elements 10 installation on the older iMac? Even if the original installation came from an online purchase from Adobe, I would think that you should be able to get new installation files from Adobe??? All that rather than focus on Premiere Elements 10 transfer from old iMac to new iMac via this "remote drive".
@ John T Smith: Thanks for the links. Chat solved it for me by giving me a download disk image so that I could do a direct install.
@ A.T. Romano. Thanks for your suggestions. Just to complete the background picture for anyone else facing this problem. I was using the original disk from Adobe. Remote installation worked with Photoshop Elements and has worked with numerous other applications.
In the end the solution was to download the disk images and install directly.
That was great news. Glad that Adobe Chat could help.
Was the original purchase from box or from an online download from Adobe?
Thanks again for the follow up.
