loading books to ADE

Hi~

I'm having no luck with loading files into ADE.  I download the book's .acsm file, and double-click on it. ADE opens, but nothing gets loaded.  There are no error messages.

 

Is there something I'm missing?

    Yes, in a word.  But I'm not sure how you're doing it, so let me restate it

    here.  No offense intended, but people sometimes overlook something.

     

    The methodology that 'should' work is to open ADE, then go to the site

    where the ebook is located and go through its download process.  As that

    process unfolds, the site will post the .ascm file (which contains only

    some information about the ebook) and then activate ADE to finish the

    process.

     

    Do NOT use a utility program to download an ebook - it doesn't work that

    way.

     

    Try it and see what happens.

    OK.  Now for a few other questions.

     

    Did you register with Adobe and obtain an Adobe ID and password before you

    downloaded and installed ADE?

     

    Have you downloaded any ebooks successfully from this site or other sites?

     

    What operating system are you using?  Windows 7 security settings may block

    downloads under certain conditions.

    What version of OS is on your MAC?  Lion has some incompatibilities.

    Check out the comments by 'Alex_Olsen' concerning the way this version of

    the software is functioning.

     

    You should be able to get a fresh install downloaded for Windows from the

    Adobe website if that's the way you want to proceed.
