I am having problems trying to open up Photoshop Elements 12 that I have downloaded from their website, I get as far as putting the download into a folder on my C drive as suggested. Then when I click on the Set-up application on the Photoshop Elements page,I click on Elements 12 , then I click on the next page for English setting,then I get the following error message; 'Error opening installation log file. Verify the specified log file location exists and is writeable'.

This really does not mean much to me ! My computer skills are basic to put it mildly.
My system is windows Vista home premium, service pack 2, 32 bit, with Avast security.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Success at last !
I have solved the problem with opening Photoshop Elements 12 ;
I defragged the hard disc,
Deleted all temporary files
Uninstalled my first attempt of PSE 12,
Added a administration new User account,restarted the computer,
Logged in with the new user setting,
Temporary disable anti virus settings etc,
Installed PSE 12,
That's it !
All systems are now go ,
I spent nearly a week trying to get it to work , it is quite a poor set up with Adobe.

Regards Neale.
