How LONG to download the trial version PSE8

seriously, I started over 2 hours ago and it's at 39%, I'll need to go to bed soon.
Is this normal, or is this the proof that my computer will not handle this software???

What is your internet speed? If it is dial-up then maybe will take a long time to download the trial version. If it is DSL or cable, then you may need ot cancel and redownload again.

As has been suggested, this download speed depends on your Internet Service. It sounds to me like you have the same average DSL speed that I have. So, you should have about 3 more hours before it is completely downloaded.

That question worried me. Beforehand, did you check the System Requirements for Photoshop Elements 8? Among other things, check out your computer available RAM and free hard drive space.

Both Photoshop Elements 8 and Premiere Elements 8 came with large "footprints" this time around. For Photoshop Elements, Control Panel, Add Remove Programs, space comparison:
Photoshop Elements 6.0............ 401.00 MB
Photoshop Elements 7.0.............385.00 MB
Photoshop Elements 8.0..........15737.00 MB

I would wait the download out.

Please let us know the outcome.

I did wait it out. Finally it is downloaded! I am so tired I will probably wait until tomorrow to check it all out.
Thanks for the encouraging words.
