            There is no phone support for Premiere Elements as far as I have ever found. There is supposed to be online help via Adobe Chat Downloading and Installing.

            If you want to explore that opportunity, please click on

            https://helpx.adobe.com/sea/contact.html?step=PRE_downloading-installing-setting-up_downlo ading-installing_stillNeedHelp

            which represents

            Downloading, Installing

            Chat Panel

            It looks like it is not a 24/7 operation, but you could try to contact it at the times given "Sunday 6 pm - Friday 7 pm PT"


            But if you give more details here, perhaps we can help you. Peru Bob has already asked you some critical questions in getting at the reason for your Premiere Elements installation problem. The answers are in the details. There are so many questions that need answers in installation failures.


            1. Are you doing the installation with or without the antivirus and firewall(s) disabled?

            Typically installation on Windows computer requires 2 files, one to extract and the second one the program itself. Often the file involved in extraction has problems with the firewall(s).


            2. If you are installing from purchased download, did you pick the right set of files for your computer....if 64 bit computer, did you select the 64 bit set of installation files?


            3. If Premiere Elements 13 is involved, are you trying to install to Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Mac OSX 10.7. If so, this cannot be done since Premiere Elements does not support these operating systems.


            Please answer Peru Bob's questions and then we can explore the answers to those and mine so that we can consider what next.


            Thank you.

                Thank you for posting in PMcbratney's thread.


                Could you clarify....did you want PMcbratney to post the installer logs.logs in this thread or did you intend to offer PMcbratney an email address to which to forward that type of information to your attention and evaluation.


                Thank you.
