Upgrade WIN8 Photoshop Elements 12 to OSX Elements 13

After traversing several Adobe-linked web sites, I am still not sure I can do this:

I have Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 installed on MAC OSX/ Parallels/Windows 8.1.

I want to purchase Photoshop Elements 13 and install on MAC OSX Mavericks outside the Parallels VW.

I no longer want to use Elements 12 installed on MAC OSX/ Parallels/Windows 8.1.

Can I do this and maintain a valid license for Elements 13?

What you're after is a "crossgrade".

You need to make application to Adobe. Instructions on this page:
