    Does Windows 8.1 support Adobe Digital Editions 2

    Howell E

      I have an Archos 9.0 eReader. Adobe Digital Editions has always worked on Windows 8 but since upgrading to Windows 8.1, I am unable to download from Windows 8.1 to the eReader. Should I delete the Adobe Digital Editions file and download a newer version.

       

      Any help would be much appreciated.

          ADE2.0.1 sort of works for me, going through the Win 8 to 8.1 upgrade without deterioration.

           

          I don't actually use it to transfer to my eReader (Sony PRS-350),

          as bugs in ADE2.0/2.0.1 mean that it will not work with that eReader and Overdrive library books.

          That isn't an OS version isssue, but an ADE bug.

          General solution to many curious problems ...

          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.

          Some people have found ADE trying to upgrade automatically. 

          It appears (not 100% sure) that if you install ADE2.0 as a new install (not as an upgrade) that your 1.7.2 will continue to run.

          Probably best to say no if 2.0.x installation asks if you want to migrate your library.
