Moving this discussion to the Adobe Digital Editions forum.
Diana, there's a process to follow here, and there can be some technical
issues as well.
First the technical issues. If you have a Windows PC with Windows 7, you
may need to adjust its security settings to allow the download and also the
interface to the tax guide.
Next, while Digital Editions is free, you need to register with Adobe and
obtain an Adobe ID in order to use it properly with most sites. I'd start
there if you have not done so already.
After you've registered, obtained an Adobe ID and downloaded/installed
Digital Editions, go to the site where the tax guide is to be downloaded
from and try to do that. If you get 'strange' messages, Digital Editions
may be telling you that your security settings need adjustment to allow
downloads from this site.
Hope this helps!
The problem is Adobe.com cannot be listed as a trusted site in my computer because the address is not https.The download is not allowed because I can not adjust my security settings for that reason.
How about trying an end-around? Can you contact the download site and find
out whether or not the Guide is available in another form - say PDF or TXT
instead of EPUB? If it is, then you might be able to download it directly
to your computer and open it there without ADE....
