I have just reinstalled Windows XP, so everything is perfectly clean. I have installed Flash, shockwave, browsers and my software, but Digital Editions 2.0.exe will not launch. I have double clicked it, right clicked it and selected Open - nothing happens. I have deleted it and downloaded it again and again - still won't launch. I have rebooted the computer twice and it still won't launch. It just sits there, dead. This is the only program I have had this problem with.
I had the same problem and was driving myself crazy. I found this page http://www.naic.org/account_manager_adobe.htm and downloaded the ZIP file they reference under "Upgrade Installation Information for Mac or Windows" step 3.
I was able to successfully install by doubleclicking the DigitalEditions2.0_setup.exe file in the ZIP.
I hope this helps,
I will try it.
Excellent!. I couldn't launch it either, but I did what you recommended and it worked perfectly. Thanks.
