I just reinstalled mine today from an amazon download. Once it had downloaded and made a folder it had two options, one was for the 32 bit and the other 64 bit. Presumably it would be trying to install a 32 bit to give you that error. The link Peru gave has an option for downloading each version.
Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 8 64 bit.
Please download and install Premiere Elements 13 tryout files from the following web site and insert your purchased serial number in them during installation. Often this route is preferred if there are problems with alternative routes to obtain installation files for the program.
In order to avoid Access Denied message, please follow carefully the "Note: Very Important Instructions" on the web page.
The source will allow you to select carefully the installation files that should be used for the 32 bit or 64 bit computer environment.
We will be watching for your progress.
Any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks, it took forever but I successfully downloaded and the complete file had the choice between 32 bit and 64 bit.
Wonderful news and good follow through on the troubleshooting to gain your success. Great job.
Best wishes. Please let us know if any additional questions or the need for clarification come up.
