    photoshop elements wont load

    Ok I had windows 8 on my laptop at one time and i remember having a problem but forget what solved it.
    I just installed windows 8.1 and got light room installed, photomatix and a few other apps..

    but adobe photoshop elements just wont go.
    my error lead me to a site that said to install adobe application manager .
    I downloaded ApplicationManager7.0_all.exe and it will not install..
    just says installer failed to initialize

    I am basically getting the same with PSE.. so any ideas helpful!!!

    I spent 5hrs on this last night and took this AM and a 1/2 dozen cups of coffee but I got it.. well with help from another forum...

    I wont list all that i tried.. but will list what I did..
    Simple (not sure why but easy fix)...

    Long story short:
    1. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe (yes I have a 64bit install)
    2. Rename or delete OOBE folder

    That is it... now Adobe Application Manager installed and so did PSE 11

    now not sure if it is partially that I installed LR5 first or not but still.. shouldnt matter which install order you do...
