ADE operates on the premise that the ID being used for ADE has to match the
ID that was embedded in the ebook when it was downloaded. This premise
stems from the Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 2000, which was enacted

Thus, the ID in effect when you open ADE will be matched to the ebooks in
You can change the ID in effect. It's covered in the ADE HELP section (F1
key when in Library mode). Look at the command key section. You
de-authorize ADE under one ID and then authorize it under the other.
