First up I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 5 and Remiere Elements 3.0

I want to install them on my new Vista machine. I checked the adobe site and learned that there are some patches for Vista so I downloaded them both.

Now I'm trying to install Premiere Elements to Vista and the install appears to be stuck at somewhere around 80% for over 40 minutes now. I check task Manager and Windows Installer is using 50% of CPU and it says in the applications window that it is still running.

Anybody tried these programs on Vista yet?

Interesting after an hour of going nowhere, I canceled the install.

The result was nothing. I decided to kill the application in Task Manager. This did nothing so I killed the Windows Installer process.

Vista thought about it for a while and then came up telling me that Vista had closed the installer because of DEP??

Anyway, I rebooted my PC and low and behold, on my destop was an icon for Elements. I clicked on it and the application started. I shut it down and then applied the elements patch.

I rebooted and it seems to work. - Go figure.

I have had similar behavior when copying large files from one drive to another. I have had the progress bar freeze around 75%, It will stay at that for approx 10 minutes, I then cancel the copy but low and behold the file copy worked.

I'm going to try Photoshop Elements 5.0 next but I'm a bit worried it will screw something up!

I had a problem installing HP photo software on XP. It tried to install a keyboard driver that was incompatible. It might be worth doing a 'custom' installation and disabling any components that look like drivers or components that may be incompatible with Vista. Then try installing the patch.

I was able to get both versions working and patched!

Still don't know what happened with Elements.

Hugh...I had the same problem at first where it hanged everytime, but after the patches were installed/updates were installed, it eradicated the problem. Mine is a 32 bit vista though, if that makes any difference
