I'm not sure what you're doing removing folders and all -- but version 10 and version 8 operate independently. Adding 10 will not erase or corrupt any of the program files or application data for version 8.
So you can have the version 10 Organizer and still edit video in version 8. Just don't expect version 8 or Premiere Elements to communicate with version 10's Organizer.
Thanks for responding.
Yes, I understand your being more than a bit surprised that I'm thinking of deleting. It was a last attempt to resolve a PSE 8 issue that has no impact on my PRE 8.
If I understand your reply I take it that a normal upgrade from 8 to 10 doesn't remove 8. It is simply installed into a separate folder. Is that correct?
I never use PRE 8 with Organizer 8 so I'm not too concerned with it not communicating with Organizer 10. The fact you mention that reminds me how little I really know about PRE & PSE. Is there some important advantage I'm failing to see whereby PSE 8 & PRE 8 can both comminicate with the same Organizer?
Yes, PrE will do a separate install for each version of the program, so that nothing is overwritten, and one can have several versions, coexisting on the computer. That is the way that it is, with most Adobe programs. This allows one to finish Projects, started in earlier versions, or allow one to use an older, familiar version, while they learn a newer version.
Many thanks for your help. I know what to do now!
Great news, and you are most welcome.
