If you're asking for help, can you be more specific about what you're doing and what you're not seeing?
There is no reason Dissolves should not work identically in all versions of the program. I've never heard of them not working when properly applied.
Welcome to the forum.
I'm with Steve on asking "what exactly is the problem?"
If you are having issues with a Cross-Dissolve only going to one Clip, and not spanning the Clips, or having Frames, that were edited out, showing up during the Transition, then take a look at this ARTICLE on Handles. Those (well, actually the lack, thereof) trip up many.
Good luck, and please let us know more,
Many thanks again.
Have removed original Premiere Elements 9 and re loaded it. This seems to have sorted my problem.
