I am in the process of upgrading from Premiere Elements 2.0 to Premiere Elements 7, and also from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have XP on one hard drive, and Windows 7 on another. I've installed Premiere Elements 7 on the Windows 7 disk.
When I create a new project on PE 7, everything works OK. When I try to read anything that I created in PE 2, I get the following...
"Sorry, a serious error has occured that requires Adove Premiere Elements to shut down. We will attempt to save your current project."
In PE 2, I archived a project onto the hard drive Windows 7 hard drive, in 'my videos' folder, but even that causes me to get the above error.
Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try?
Thanks in advance,
You could export to DV-AVI and then read it in to PRE7 (but this will embed any transitions or effects into the import file).
