I am trying to download premiere elements 11 and then when I download step 1 of step 2 its says something about the archive???
From where are you downloading Premiere Elements 11? What computer operating system is involved? Are you downloading new installation files from your account at Adobe or some place else? Do you have the purchased serial number?
With these downloads of installation files, you need two files specific for your 32 or 64 bit computer - one is an .exe file that extracts files from the other file .7z program file. Do you ever see the two files that you will need?
