Thank you for finding that, at least now I know there is no solution and I can stop obsessing on how to fix it.
So is there any confirmation that this works in version 15? I'd rather not risk wasting my money to upgrade to equally broken software.
Forgive my sarcasm, but I doubt Adobe would support an older version(s) when they can simply direct people to spend more money. I realize this isn't Adobe's fault. I'm just stuck dependent on a pretty important feature that doesn't work. :/

As indicated in that note, that problem no longer exist in the present Elements 15.
Elements is not the only software to be affected by that Google change.
There is no secret that only the latest version is supported by Adobe, but there "they are exploring possible solutions"...
Suggestion: download the trial version of PSE15 which should cover your needs for 30 days. Usually a new version is issued in September/October, so, you might wait before paying the upgrade if you decide so. Otherwise, if you pay the upgrade for Elements 15 less than one month of the availability of Elements 15, you should be good to ask for a free upgrade.
I read this reply - Basically it's Google's Fault- and assumed that was it for Elements 14. Then Windows 10 Update destroyed my symbolic links and Elements wouldn't work at all. I failed to diagnose the problem before deciding to reinstall Elements. After the re-install, Places worked again.
As a warning though, I had to completely re catalog everything because I had failed to realize what had happened and I couldn't recover the catalog file.
