Fought for two nights trying to get ADE installer to open. Tried different browsers, tried to installer, including older versions, from other sites but kept getting redirected to Adobe. Glanced at some of the blogs to see if I could glean any usable info for a non-geek.
For some reason, I right clicked one of my download attempts and perused the different tabs in the 'properties' field. Under the 'general' heading, at the bottom right of the window was a gray box that said 'UNBLOCK.' Seems that some security feature in my laptop was trying to block the installer from opening. I unblocked and within minutes had the ap installed and the book downloaded. (Was just about ready to throw the laptop accross the room)
