can't paste into photoshop elements 9 for mac. get message "could not be placed because of a program error"

for example, did the following (which works fine with PE version 4):
copy figure in .pptx file
open new doc in PE9 (size from clipboard)

get error message

I'm glad I chose the trial version first because it is useless without this feature.

Called Adobe support and said that they don't support the trial. Of course I won't purchase it if it doesn't do what I need.
