So, did the upgrade work or not?
Probably. Premiere Elements 8 will continue to show version 8.0 even after the update.
Adobe has confirmed this in one of their TechNotes.
I don't use PRE8 but I believe Steve Grisetti knows how to check and I'm sure he or someone else will post the information for you.
Hope this helps.
As Paul says, go to C:/PROGRAM FILES/ADOBE/PREMIERE ELEMENTS 8.0 and see if any of your dll's (especially Display.dll) are dated after 2/28/2010.
If so, you have the update.
I've done the update routine(s) mentioned and, although it says no more updates are available, About says I'm at v8.0.
Steve, my dll's creation dates all end at 9.8.2009 except for those dated today (the day I installed). There are no dates in between. Display.dll was created 9.8.2009 but has a modified date of today (4.26.2010). So do I have the update?
I guess Adobe doesn't have enough bucks to hire a programmer that can address this issue. I'm guessing they have their entire staff dedicated to figuring out how to create the most artsy-fartsy looking interface that will look good on their Macs. Evidently, people that use PC's are just too concerned about usability and readability. No matter how I adjust the dimming in Premier, its low contrast 6-point fonts on the screen are making me go blind. [/offsoapbox]
I think you're good to go, wysocki.
