          Sometimes ADE gets its registration/activation confused and in a semi-authorized state.

          Uninstalling and reinstalling does not help, and indeed installation can even trigger this state.

          Unfortunately, it often then gives misleading error messages about what is wrong.

          A common incorrect message informs you that the ID is already in use on another computer and cannot be reused.

          Another is  "E_AUTH_NOT_READY"



          This can often be resolved by completely removing any authorization using ctrl-shift-D to the Library screen on ADE (cmd-shift-D if on Mac).

          Restart ADE, and then reauthorize with your (old) Adobe ID.



          In extreme cases on the mac, the following extra step has helped some people.  Navigate to /Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions and drag the activation.dat file to the trash.

                Pretty hopless service.  All I can suggest is to try a different time of day, or try telephone service

                (not sure of the number, and they are even worse than online chat from what I have seen on the forum)


                Or the Adobe Support Portal

                https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/support/index.cfm?event=home&loc=en_gb for GB and maybe for UK

                I'm sure you can easily find yours.


                I've never used any of them so can't give personal opinion.


                Good luck ...
