Thanks for posting on adobe forums.
Are you using DVD to install premiere elements 11 ?
Thanks for the reply I just downloaded from Amazon.
No. it was downloaded.
>What is the problem?
The problem is that you are not doing what the error message says... you need to install the 32bit version of the program for that version of Windows
The 64bit version of the program REQUIRES Windows 7 64bit or Windows 8 64bit
Here is the download link for the 32 bit of premiere elements 11:
1. you have to log in to the adobe.com with adobe ID and then choose the Acrobat or Photoshop Elements 12 page:
2. do not click on the download button.
3. copy and paste the following links one by one in the address bar.
the download will start.
A just in case note, for Premiere Elements 11 to be a 64 bit application it requires Windows 7 64 bit or Windows 8 64 bit, not just Windows 7 or Windows 8 generalized.
When you were doing the purchase of Premiere Elements 11 from Amazon, were you asked whether you wanted the 32 or 64 bit version or was it supposed to detect which system you have and then lets you download that?
Thanks but the Amazon Download of the Adobe Premiere Elements 11 Comes with both 64 and 32 bit versions.
