          ATR Premiere Elements Troubleshooting: PE12: Premiere Elements 12 Editor Will Not Open


          The error profile with dvacore.dll has been frequently seen in these forums for many versions of Premiere Elements.

          Fixes have included creating a new User Account with Administrative Privileges and installing and running Premiere Elements in it.

          In another instance the problem was reported to be due to share with a file server. And, so on.


          Please review the above and then we can decide what next.


          Thank you.
