I don't think anyone here will be able to help... program activation is only from the Adobe server, and it seems, from what you say, that feature is no longer supported
You may of course export your finished video to DV AVI and then import that into some other DVD authoring software
I do NOT use these, but they should work http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/dvdastudio
Possibly the one you've already tried, but there is an Adobe MPEG activation page here - http://www.adobe.com/motion/mpegactivation.html.

This same problem was reported here recently.
The message that you are getting is probably the same one that the other user was getting...and it boiled down to if you had Premiere Elements 8 or earlier MPEG2 Activation was no longer available. The message included the "sorry about that" but did not offer a workaround. It was what it said. It all sounded curious since it sounded like Adobe was pulling the plug on older versions.
Are you using Premiere Elements 3.0/3.0.2 for the first time on this computer? Or, have you been using the program on this computer and suddenly this MPEG2 message is popping up when you go to do burn to DVD?
To this date, I am able to do burn to disc on Windows 7 64 bit with Premiere Elements 2, 4, 7, and 8.0/8.0.1 (the versions pointed to). Let me see if I can find the other thread and the outcome. My recollection is that the other user had Premiere Elements 3.0/3.0.2 on another computer and run into the problem when taking the program to Windows 7 64 bit.
Back soon with the other thread details.
This is the specific message that I believe you are presented with
Please refer to post of another with this Premiere Elements 3.0/3.0.2 burn to DVD / MPEG2 Activation Message
The thead goes back to February 2014 and has no outcome.
