Hi Gus,

Elements 13 requires Win 7 or later, so you would not be able to upgrade on your current XP system.

I would wait until you have a system with Win 7 or Win 8 prior to purchasing the upgrade to Elements 13.

I have a HP Z230 running Win 7 64bit.
I could not get PE4 to run on it.
I was told by Symantec that PE must be installed to enable it to be upgraded

Hi Gus, you do not need the older product to be installed. You may need to enter your prior version's serial # as part of the Elements 13 installation.
