Well I messed up, I keep 2 versions of Premiere on my PC – the newest to work with H265 and always had an old version (CC 7\2013 – the first CC I think it was) to work with large H264 files and I use .wav audio export 99% of the time. I updated to the latest ver. (2023) and accidentally checked off ‘remove old vers’ before I realized what I did it was too late and my CC 7 was removed for my PC.
No problem I thought, I can go back to the C Cloud and it used to be under ‘old versions’ – alas now apparently it’s gone! (or I can’t find it!).
The newer versions (after CC 7) never really worked right for me – I’ve been in touch and uploaded files w\Adobe for years on it but finally just gave up and kept working with CC 7. The ones after that don’t like to import separate video files over 10gb for me (it hangs for a long time) and then when they do finally import they stutter when playing back. My PC specs are good (SSD’s, Ryzen 9, 64gb RAM etc.) but we never got it figured out.
Anyway does anyone know where I can find the CC7 file again? I found a site that had the direct links but a note there says that Adobe has started to remove them so the CC7 link is now in fact dead.
Thanks for the reply – Yes, that is the site I referred to but the CC 2013 Premiere links are dead now apparently. Luckily I was able to find a trial version I had on a backup of it so possibly I could install it and as long as Adobe lets me sign in using it I ‘think’? it should be ok?
I couldn’t find a backup of Media Encoder though, I know I had a separate CC version of ME – anyone know what version will work in conjunction with CC2013?
In case anyone finds this in the future – Regarding MediaEncoder; installing Premiere Pro CC 2013 also installed the correct ME version so it is not a separate install for this version.
I was able to sign-in to my Adobe account but it took several tries and a PC restart for it to take effect for some reason. Premiere kept asking for a sign-in prompt so that took a while to get fixed. As of now this version (7.0) shows under the Cloud App and it’s working fine. Not sure why Adobe doesn’t keep these older versions on there for install, I assume it has to do something with the ‘Dolby’ export option they are no longer able to use?
