Sorry but but my native language is Dutch, so here is the same message after Spellchecker:
lean installation of Windows 7 and PE8 on 1 PC Dell Dualcore 4gig ram (W7/64) and 1 PC Microstar Quadcore 6600 4gig ram (W7/64 and W7/32) so on 2 different PC which means three different W7 and PE8. Results the same for all three!!!
Impossible to work with. PE8 crashes all the time.
I have read the forum and saw that I am surely not the only one.
I've also read that Adobe even didn't test this product on W7 (only CS3 and CS4 is mentioned on their Homepage). Are they serious???
In the Crash Report, under the question which Operating system you are using, you even don't find Windows 7, you have to click on "others"
I bought this PE8 by downloading it via Adobe Belgium (Europe) for the price of 100€ which is much more then your $-price.
I bought it because I was very satisfied about PE7, but after installing it on 2 of my W7, I found that I couldn't open my wedding film project anymore. In one case the PE7 minimized itself and couldn't be open anymore, in the other case the project opened but gave immediately a error message and closed. So I bought PE8 with great expectations. It became a BIG disappointment!!!!
After installing it , I opened my wedding film project which was ready for one third of the film (1h30) and continued editing.
I couldn't believe what happened then. Numerous crashes and numerous crash reports filled in !!!.
After lots of lost time and trying under the different W7 and PE8 installations (3), I managed to end my editing.
I tried to render to DVD......CRASH, tried to render to AVI......CRASH. No more Crash reports coming, maybe they had send a trigger to get rid of me? (sick joke, I know)
I put everything on a external hard disk and went to a friend with W7/64 with Premiere Pro CS4. Imported the PE8 project, changed the missing PE8-transistions into PrPro CS4 ones and finally rendered it to a AVI file. After I got home, I opened my PE8 project, deleted the video and audio files and imported the new AVI, so I could keep the markers and menu's. This time I could manage to make a DVD without crash, because no more trimming or inserting files.
So finally I finished this dreadful experience which took me two days of Blood Sweat and Tears. This is really no editing fun!
I checked the forum, looked for this NVidia 3D dll which could be the cause, but despite I downloaded the latest driver for my Geforce 8600, couldn't find it.
I will try now to deactivate this "Adobe Auto Analyzer" thing which uses 100 MB, maybe that will help?
No reaction from Adobe despite my numerous Crash reports. Once paid, go to ......
I also don't want to return to Vista or XP 'cause this is my only program which gives problems with W7
I've tried the compatibility modus XP sp3, also didn't help.
To much troubles and job for this prebeta working misfit for which I regret already much the investment..
No help despite numerous crash reports. Shame on you Adobe !!
But what now?
A desperate user.
when you find the answer, please let us all know. just emerged from 3 days of sheer torture with my windows vista and premiere elements 4 crashing about 100 times. had to start project over from scratch.
By the way, with PE7 and Vista, I never had any problems
But I never had any problem with PE7 and Windows Vista
I have send this message in short (2000 letter signs allowed) to Adobe.
When I submitted, next was a message:
Due to the volume of submissions we receive, responses to inquiries are
generally not possible.
However, we may contact you if we need clarification on your submission
I just check the HP Online Store (www.hpshopping.com),
All of their Desktop PC's are shipping with Win7 and you can purchase PE7 as an add on application.
NONE of their Win7 PC's are currently shipping with PE8.
This tells me that HP has not yet certified and tested any of their current Win7 configurations with PE8. or they did test and are not yet comfortable with what they witnessed.
It also tells me that HP did test and certify their Win7 configs with PE7. This makes sense as the announce date from Adobe for PE8 was way to late for large vendors like HP and Dell to certify for Win7.
HP's policy is simple (and I'm sure Dell does the same), they will not package any third party software for sale with their PC's unless it passes their in house testing.
If you have PE7, you might want to try that with your Win7 system and see if you have a better experience.
This won't solve your PE8 issue, but may help you at least get something running...
You must remove the Nvidia 3D Stereoscopic Driver from Control Panel> Uninstall a program. It is incompatible with PrEl.
Insanity is hereditary, you get it from your children
Do you think I can Put PE7 and PE8 together in one Windows.
Until now I didn't start a new project in PE8 only opened several PE7 projects.
Always is the first problem that you can not render previews, de red lines stay red!

* Have you tried disabling the GPU playback option available under "Edit>Preferences>General"
Will try this
Geforce 8600 doesn't have this driver.
But thanks for the tip
Thanks for your reaction
You can import this project in to Premiere Pro CS4 and continue editing
I was refering to the "Edit>Preferences>General" option under the Menu options within Premiere Elements.
I found and switched it of.
I imported now *.MOV files for about one hour of SD-film that had to be
converted from NTSC (NTSC 720 p 29.7 f/s) to PAL (720x576 25f/s).
Took 3.5 hrs to render a preview, until now without crash, but of course
there was just a few trimming or inserting. Now it's making a DVD, so far so
So one conclusion already: Never start a PE7 project in a PE8.
Always start with a blanco project
