DE-activate and UN-install on old... if you are never going to use old again
Install on the new computer the exact same way you did the first time
Thank You, I believe I will need the registration number where will I find that.
What is the computer systems are involved in your question? Windows to Windows, Windows to Mac, Mac to Windows, Mac to Mac?
What is your intent...Premiere Elements on both computers or just the new one.
Major consideration is Adobe allowing the activated purchased serial number for a given version on no more than 2 of your computers. Remember there is a difference between Deactivate and uninstall. You deactivate first and then uninstall if you want to keep the activated purchased serial number per version count to 2.
If you are planning on opening Premiere Elements 12 Windows projects in Windows computer 1 in Premiere Elements 12 Windows on Windows computer 2, then certain factors need to be considered so that you do not end up with serious media disconnect problems on the new computer. Best use Project Archiver Copy Project Option and transfer of the resulting Copied Folder (via USB Flash Drive) to the second computer. The following will give you some ideas about the consideration involved....
Remember that you cannot open Premiere Elements 12 Windows projects in Premiere Elements 12 Mac and Premiere Elements 12 Mac projects in Premiere Elements 12 Windows.
The answers to the above will allow us to customize a Premiere Elements answer to your Premiere Elements question.
It is windows to windows. I am trashing the old computer since it is giving me problems. The software is still brand new -no projects on it.
Thanks for the follow. Your news including no prior projects to transfer presents the best possible scenario.
Premiere Elements 12 on old computer, go to Expert workspace, Help Menu/Sign Out (that deactivates the program). Close out of there.
Then, uninstall (usual Control Panel/Programs route)
Then, free ccleaner run through (regular cleaner and registry cleaner) to get rid of leftovers from incomplete uninstalls and reinstalls.
Then, on new computer, with antivirus and firewalls disabled, install Premiere Elements 12 from your purchased online download or from a purchased installation disc. Once that is done, install the 12.1 Update via Expert workspace Help Menu/Update. Camera Raw Update should also be available at that time (as a reference latest Camera Raw is 8.5). Camera Raw allows you to import raw file format and dng as source media into a Premiere Elements project. Camera Raw dialog needs Photoshop Elements installed.
Best wishes as you move forward with Premiere Elements 12/12.1 on your new computer.
Premiere Elements 12/12.1 Windows is a 64 bit application only on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Where do I find the license on the old computer?

Did you purchase Premiere Elements 12 as a download from Adobe. If so, you should be able to find your purchased serial number, if you do not have it, by going to Adobe website (http://www.adobe.com), signing in, and then in the Search field type in My Products. Follow the links to My Products to find your registered products. When you find Premiere Elements 12, click on it to reveal the serial number.
If you have an installation disc, then look for a label with serial number on the box that houses the envelope containing the installation disc.
If you have none of that, then there is a major problem.
Please let us know the situation.
What about moving my Photoshop Elements 12 catalog and photos from a Windows 7 computer to a Windows 8.1 computer? I think I understand about deactivating PSE12 on the old computer. But as far as moving the photos/catalog/organizer, is it as straightforward as backing up the Windows 7 catalog to an external hard drive and then restoring it to my Windows 8.1 computer? Is the size of the library a factor (I have close to 75,000 items in the library)? Thanks.
If your program is Photoshop Elements 12, then you have posted in the wrong forum. You have posted in the Adobe Premiere Elements Forum (video editing).
