I lost my PSE 9 when my laptop was stolen and the only way to replace it is to spend $99 to "upgrade" to v. 12. That is patently unfair.

I see your serial # for Elements 9 is registered under your Adobe ID. Did you also lose your install disk? If so, you can download a copy here and use the serial # registered to your account to activate:

If you're getting an error about your product already being activated on 2 systems, go to this page and work with a chat agent. They should be able to restore your activation: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/po...
