Two possible answers.
Sometimes ADE gets its registration/activation confused and in a semi-authorized state.
Unfortunately, it often then gives misleading error messages about what is wrong.
Try completely removing any authorization using ctrl-shift-D to ADE (cmd-shift-D if on Mac).
Restart ADE, and then reauthorize with your Adobe ID.
There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0. Try replacing ADE2.0 with the older but more reliable v1.7.2.
(You can have them both installed at once if you like.)
Version 1.7.2, it is a little difficult to find, available on Adobe site for Windows and for Mac.

now when I try to download a book from ADE it tells me i ‘m not licensed to download to my ereader. ADE is a free download my library has you use to download the borrowed book. What do I need to do to correct this problem? I didn’t have this problem until my computer crashed and got a new tower with windows 8. I have every thing authorized so this is a new problem.
