Hi there , I purchased a book called High Probability Trading back in 2008 ish
It opened on Adobe editions fine back then on my old laptop which is running on Windows 2000
I havent used that laptop for a couple of years.
I started it up today, but I cant open the book on adobe editions, there is an error 2038
I cant seem to transfer it to my other laptop either which is running on windows XP
Can anyone offer me a solution please?
Apparantly 2038 is inability to connect to server.
for example, temporarily turn off your firewall.
Someone else says it may be a version conflict. http://support.diesel-ebooks.com/kb/article/troubleshooting-questions/i-receive-error-2038 -in-adobe-digital-editions
It could be that the AdobeID registration has got confused; it does sometimes.
Try clearing it using ctrl-shift-D to ADE, restart ADE, and reapply your old registration.
Then see if you can open the book.
If you need to reinstall ADE, v1.7.2 is probably your best bet. There are lots of issues with 2.0, especially on older machines.
Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
