Is it possible to transfer the Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Catalog over to Adobe Photoshop Elements 9?

I just called Adobe tech support and they have told me that Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 isn't fully compatible with Windows 7 64-bit OS.

I just want to make sure that before we purchase a brand new version of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0 that we will be able to import the current Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 Catalog information into Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0.

This is because I am supporting a user who has around 100,000 pictures that have been categorized on a Windows XP computer using Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0. We would like to be able to keep all of this Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 category information for all of the pictures when we install Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0 on the Windows 7 64-bit OS computer and then have Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0 discover all of the pictures on the Windows 7 64-bit OS computer hard drive.

The tag information is stored in the image EXIF data so its not an issue

KCTS,

Do you mean that all of the tag information ("metadata information") is stored within the picture files themselves?

All of the user's pictures are using standard picture file Windows formats such as .jpg, .bmp, .gif, .png, etc.

KCTS,

What exactly to you mean by "image EXIF data"?

Just one more question.

I'm currently downloading Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (which will take another 5 hours because of my slow DSL connection).

I have looked at several picture files and it looks like these picture files store just the standard Windows details. I'm not able to view any of the special categories or Adobe comments.

Will all of these special categories and Adobe comments reappear when I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 rediscover all of the many thousands of pictures on my hard drive?
