I have just downloaded Prem Elements 8 trial
version, but when I try to open files created in
version 3 it says that the media is not supported.
I'm running an Acer TravelMate with Vista Home Premium (32 bit), AMD Turion 64x2, 2Gb RAM, and an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100.
You will definitely NOT be able to open a version 3 project with version 8, Scara.
The program has gone through so many major overhauls since then, it's just not possible.
In fact, I even recommend against opening a version 7 project in version 8. There's almost always buggy behavior when you do, and the program is simply not designed to work like that.
Many thanks Steve. Maybe the answer I was expecting rather than the one I wanted!
