    ADE 2.0 issue


      Cannot get ADE 2.0 to properly install on Windows 8.  Any ideas that might help?

          Moving this discussion to the Adobe Digital Editions forum.  Are you receiving any specific error messages when you try to install Adobe Digital Editions?

            Mine installed without problems (problems came later) so I can't comment directly.

            It is a 'real Windows 8 computer, not a WIndows RT tablet?


            You could try ADE1.7.2 instead unless you need the extra features of V2.0.

            1.7.2 is more reliable in lots of ways; I use it because the v2.0/Overdrive/SonyPRS-350 combination doesn't work).


            Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.

              Believe it or not, I got the issue resolved.  I am actually not sure

              what really corrected the problem but I turned off the pop up blocker

              and converted from wireless to a wired connect and the installer

              started.  I think it is the pop up blocker that solved the problem. 

              After spending hours in a chat with Adobe support with no success or

              recommendation, I stated troubleshooting on my own.


              To answer you question specifically, there was no error message. The

              installer simply would not launch when opened.  Nothing happened.
