    Cant re install PSE8


    Why did I upgrade? 2 days of misery so far. I had to buy a new printer cos the old one wouldn't work (nothing wrong with it, just hates Win 8.

    main problem is I can't get Photoshop Elements to re install. Most other programs I had under win 7 installed ok (though god knows where they are or how I open them) but PSE 8 Gives me error 1606. I've scoured the registry, cant find any part of the old installation to delete

    Any ideas gratefully received
