Photoshop Elements

Today I have purchased the above Elements - looked forward to having this for ages. Now I have loaded it and I get this message - "The setup Exe file is linked to missing Esport KERNEL32.DLL:GetUserDefaultUILanguage"

I am running Windows 98 and I wonder if this is the problem. What can I do please?

These are the system requirements for "Elements 3"

# Windows XP Professional or Home Edition with Service Pack 1; Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4
# Intel Pentium III or 4 (or compatible) 800 MHz (faster recommended) processor
# 256 MB RAM (512 MB or more recommended)
# 600 MB of available hard-disk space
# Microsoft DirectX 9-compatible display driver
# 1,024x768 16-bit (XGA) display
# CD-ROM drive
# For handhelds: requires Palm OS 4.0, 4.1, or 5.0 and Palm Desktop 4.0 or 4.01

Oh crumbs - does this mean I have wasted £69 quid?

You could upgrade to "XP" - it wouldn't cost a great deal more.

Is this PHotoshop Elements 2 or 3?

If it is 2 then it should work on Win98.

If it is 3 then it does need WinXP.

Hi Ton, Yes it is 3!!
Heard that upgrading to XP is not too good an idea though iambeavis. We have PCAdvisor Mag and read it there.

So I shall have to get Elements 2.

Anyone prefer Paintshop Pro to Elements?

Most definitely, they're not in the same league. I tried the original version of Elements, uninstalled and threw it away. Also uninstalling fouled up my Photoshop settings. Having said this v3 is probably better.

What's wrong with upgrading to XP? If your pc has the spec, go for it. The upgrade CD is about the same price as Elements or PSP.

if your PC spec up for it, you should defintely go for XP, not waste any £60 for element 2.

You can get OEM version of XP for £60, you can get a new hard drive (40Gb costs less than £30) to qualify for OEM status

Sorted this. Got money back and bought Paint shop Pro 9 from Amazon - wonderful.

go for XP if PC spec up for it

Thanks TomJerry but PC not up to it. Will pourchase another in time.
