To be sure, I am a novice at Premier Elements, but have had version 13 for over a year. When I first received update 13.1, it would fail when I tried to install it. After dozens of attempts, I just gave up. After failing, I just started xing out the download, and would go ahead with editing whatever.
Just recently I tried the update again, and it says it is successful, but says update 13.1 is available after each time I try to install it. Maybe I don't need this update, but maybe I do. Is this the only update ever offered for version 13? Will other updates come if I have never successfully installed 13.1? Does Adobe still update version 13 since version 14 is now available? What does 13.1 change over 13?
Can anyone shed some light on this matter?
I can't help with the installation issue. If it was me and I was unhappy with it, I would do a complete deactivate and uninstall, download a fresh copy and install that. Make sure you have the serial numbers. It might be more trouble than it is worth.
For the versions, 13.1 is the only update to 13.0. I use 13.1. I don't know the difference. I think I remember it was a bug fix for a function I never used.
Premier Elements has been upgraded annually in the fall for several years. 13 came out in the fall of 2014. 14 came out in the fall of 2015. I suspect 15 will be offered this year. Updates only seem to happen for bug issues. Someone using 14 might tell you if there is a 14.1.
