As far as I know, there is no way to install the program without installation files.
Someone on this forum may now know a web site where you can download older versions of the program. But other than that, the only other option I know of is borrowing someone's installation discs and using the serial number you were assigned when you downloaded the program.
If your product is Photoshop Elements, you have posted in the wrong forum. Some how your thread got posted in the Adobe Premiere Elements Forum (video editing). Please re-post your thread in the Adobe Photoshop Elements Forum.
Things to think about as you do that
1. What version of Photoshop Elements and what computer operating system is involved?
2. Do you have the purchased serial number for your version and the computer operating system to which the product was downloaded?
Use the appropriate Adobe other downloads installation files for your version installation and insert your purchased serial number during that installation
I do not understand what you mean by
I have all the files, but no "setup" or similar
Are you talking about hard drive program files as opposed to installation files?
To repeat...if you have the purchased serial number for your Photoshop Elements version, you should be able to download installation files from the Adobe Other Downloads link Other downloads - open the link to find opportunities to get Photoshop Elements 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 installation files.
Please let us know the outcome.
Worked perfectly - thank s a lot!
...on the way!
