I guess no one knows then.
I did not see your thread until this very moment. Was it posted since yesterday in the Premiere Elements Forum?
Be that as it may, are you having trouble with any other Content download items besides the Outdoor Adventure Template? When did you find the colorful "media offline" messages when you had the project open and selected in the project or only after you saved/closed reopened that project?
Two things for you to try
a. Are you running Premiere Elements 12 from a User Account with Administrative Privileges? If not, please do so.
b. In addition, right click the Premiere Elements 12 desktop icon, select and click on Run As Administrator.
Do these actions correct the problem?
We will be watching for your progress.

Thank you for the reply.
- Yes, I am running windows 7 pro under the actual administrator account not as a local user with admin rights
- Since I am logged in as the administrator is this still necessary?
This time the event "error" log has only 2 events and also a message popped up asking me to link the file "outdoor-adventure_s_texture.png"
I looked in the folder C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Premiere Elements\12.0\Online\Movie Themes\All_Lang\Event\Outdoor Adventure and the file was missing.
I copied the file "outdoor-adventure_texture.png" and just modified the name to "outdoor-adventure_s_texture.png" and the error message went away.
I downloaded the theme pack once, cleared it out, and re-downloaded. I guess that file is missing.
Please do the right click of the Premiere Elements 12 desktop icon, select, and click on Run As Administrator even if you are running the program from a User Account with Administrative Privileges.
It is late where I am, I will explain further in the morning.
Thanks for the follow up with the helpful information.
