Swap PSE from Laptop to PC

Hi Guys quick question....

I bought a Laptop that had Photoshop Elements 9 pre-installed on it, but as I mainly use a PC instead for everything is it possible to swap it over to PC and how?

I cant see a download link on Adobe for PSE. Hoped I could download it and use the laptop activation code. Have been told it can be used twice??

There is no easy way to transfer a program from system to system. You would have to figure out all of the folders, files and registry entries that the original installation created & copy them. There was a link recently on another forum to D/L various Adobe products (older software but not trial versions, actual full versions for free I will try to find it)

Hi there if you have a Recovery partition ....... It is just possible that the application might be there under applications ...
This is not always the case though.

LapLink used to have a product called PCMover that allowed you to "migrate" apps from one PC to another. It was primarily for upgrading from an old PC to a new PC and avoiding the tedious problem of having to reinstall all your apps. I know it worked because I used it.

That was a while back though, and I don't know if it's still available -- and it's not free, you have to buy it.

OP A workaround could be to grab the free version of CS2 Get Adobe Creative Suite 2 For Free
You can custom install just Elements or Photoshop. It does run on 64 or 32 bit Win 7

Thanks for that. Guess that will do for now.
