I have been using Digital Editions for some time but this morning it failed to load with the error message "Digital Editions encountered a problem and needs to close" follow by an invitation to send a report to Microsoft. I am using Windows XP SP3. Perhaps it's no coincidence that Windows did an automatic update last night ? Would appreciate any help.
I don't know which ADE version you are using.
There are lots of bugs in v2.0.
You will probably find v1.7.2 works better on XP than V2.0.
Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.
