I have been contacted by Support over half a dozen times, asking me to call back. Each time I call back, the support person starts from scratch only to verify that indeed 2.0.1 fails on Windows 8. I finally had to cancel the support ticket just to stop them sending me silly emails to call them back.
As of today, 11 Oct 2013, ADE is still at version 2.0.,1, the version that fails on Windows 8.
If you have Windoiws 8, Support advises using 1.7.2. I advise doing nothing with ADE until they fix a new version 2, since they clain that 2.0.1 has important Level 3 security fixes. This renders my paid-for epub books useless to me since I will not use a risky ADE product.
I am now having trouble using it on Windows Vista. I always get an error message when I try to download a book from the Denver Public Library. Never had the problem in the past. Now I can't even read the books or transfer them to my Nook. What a pain. I don't buy books from any of the vendors. I don't buy books except those at Barnes and Noble specifically for Nook.

madstitcher54: Request expired can happen if the computer or eReader has been set to the wrong time or wrong timezone.
Lester Ingber: I don't think 1.7.2 is a significant security risk. If you prefer you could try Sony Reader.
Free download from Sony intended to run with Sony eReaders but works quite happily without. I prefer ADE1.7.2 to Sony Reader. https://ebookstore.sony.com/download/
Does anyone know, where can we find a secure download of the 1.7.2 version ? It really works ok with Windows 8 ?
Here is a secure download for 1.7.2; which has been working fine for me on Windows 8/8.1.
There are lots of bugs in ADE2.0 (and 2.0.1). 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.
The forum software is sometimes corrupting the link above. There shouldn't be a blank in 'editio ns.html'. The following redirects to the same page: http://tinyurl.com/diged172
As an aside: I prefer ADE1.7.2 to 2.0/2.0.1, as it is much less bug ridden.
The particular bug that really hits me is that ADE2.0 will not work with library books when my Sony PRS-350 is plugged in.
Nevertheless, apart from the bugs, ADE2.0/2.0.1 have worked for me on Windows 8/8.1
Thank you !!!
I too have ADE 188.8.131.52765 crashing on windows 8.1 when my Nook Color is mounted. I guess Adobe is not going to fix this.
