What version of Premiere Elements, what computer operating system?
If Premiere Elements 12/12.1 through 14, I suggest that you deactivate the program by going to an opened project's Help Menu/Updates. At that point, you can leave it installed on that old computer or uninstall it Deactivate and uninstall are not the same thing. Then go to the new computer and install the program with your purchased serial number.
Please consider and supply more details. I will go into deeper details based on the details in your reply.
Thanks. premier elements 14 the program does work but can run slow and fast in the preview window but will render and create videos fine but I going to new pic with better cpu and more memory
Thanks for the follow up.
Your plan sounds good. Please update us on your progress as your time permits.
Adobe allows for use of the same purchased activated serial number on no more than 2 of your computers. And, then you are supposed to use one at a time. Typically, you will get a message about that if you try for a 3rd computer with the same purchased activated serial number already on 2 of your computers. If you ever get into a situation where you have the purchased activated serial number trapped on a crashed computer, then online Adobe Chat is the only one to help you.
thanks will do when the new pc comes
