I keep getting the following error whenattempting to authorize DE 2.0."Connection Error - digital editions could not connect to the activation server. Please make sure you are connected to the internet". I have installed and uninstalled DE2.0 several times. I have disabled firewall and add-ons, still no luck. Running Windows 7 and IE on a wi-fi network. Have successfully authorized DE2.0 on another computer with a separate account running Win7/IE on the same wi fi network. This mystery remains.
Sometimes ADE gets in a half-connected state.
Often the error message it gives in that case has nothing to do with the real error.
Deauthorise to remove any old (possibly confused) authorizations. ctrl-shift-D (cmd-shift-D on Mac) when in Library view on ADE.
Try to authorize again.
Thanks sjpt - but this didn't work. Still get the same error message.
