I even paid for it (I know theres no diffrence) but I always get the same error (Adobe Premiere elements failed to install shared technologies. Rolling back changes). I have windows 7 x64 And after 3 HOURS of waiting of the phone for a rep, I decided not to contact them for any info. PE 7 installed fine, but they don't work on windows 7.
Use task manager to see if you have any other Adobe software running in the background - Adobe Bridge is often the culprit for these installation errors. If you find anything running then use End Process.
