Premiere Elements will not work properly when installed on any drive other than your C boot drive
DE-activate and UN-install and then Install on your C boot drive
I would have to do a search, but I believe that an Adobe Staff member once wrote that you did not have to install Premiere Elements on the Local Disk C, but there would be some instances where certain parts of the package would go automatically to a default location.
But, generally speaking many have reported that Premiere Elements seems to work better on Local Disk C (default location).
I will see if I can find the older thread that I am remembering. This thread involved installing Premiere Elements and installation to SSD.
More in the morning.

If the SSD (Solid State Drive) is the C boot drive it doesn't matter that it is not a platter drive... it is still the C boot drive
While there may be some people who have installed to other than the C boot drive and the program worked... that goes against what I have "generally" read in this forum for the past half dozen years (of course, not that many people actually do install to other than the C boot drive, so there may not be very many messages to find)
I was going to write the following as an add on to my post 2, but I think John's post bumped me off in the middle of doing that.
Here are the threads that I was remembering. Please check them out to see if anything in them applies your situation.
I am not sure if Akshat B (post 2 of the following) had an external hard drive in mind
What is the connection type of that external HDD?
If it's USB 2.0, or FireWire 400 (IEEE-1394a), then the connection is most likely too slow to allow the program to function.
As PrE is not designed to be portable, I would anticipate that one would have difficulties running it on an external HDD.
Good luck, and please let us know about the connection for that external HDD.
PS - IIRC, one valued contributor to this forum, Neale, runs PrE from his D:\. I do not recall if that is a separate physical drive, or is a partition on his Disk 0? Maybe he can comment on his exact setup. However, I do not recall reading of any user running PrE from an external HDD.
the connection is USB 2.0. I'm trying to dlete as much unnessescary information as i can on my HDD. any easy way to do that?
As Hunt said, USB2 is not fast enough to install and run a program
How large is your C drive, and just what do you have on it?
For video editing it works "better" if you have TWO internal 7200 RPM drives... boot/C drive for Windows and ALL programs, and a physically separate drive for files
My HDD is 570 GB. I did a disk clean up and it rmoved about 400 GB of garbage.
I'm going to reinstall it onto my Hard disk drive.
Did you do a ccleaner run through before the install, presumed to go on the default Local Disk C?
ccleaner will get rid of leftovers from incomplete installs and uninstalls.
Looking forward to your results.
