Thank you for that information.
It would seem that the program ought to run OK. (I do have SP3 installed, along with all high priority updates. Also, there's more than 20GB still free on the NTFS partition in which WinXP is running, and in which ADE 3.0 was installed.)
I happened to try running the program again, in the limited (non-admin) account in which I normally work. I didn't expect it to work at all, but it actually got as far as authorising the program on this computer to work with e-books associated with my Adobe ID.
However, when I tried to add my (one and only!) e-book to the library on this machine (or rather, the library belonging to that particular XP user account), it 'blew up' again, in the same way as before.
Still flummoxed, I failed to note any technical details.
I immediately switched into the admin account, and ran the program again. It 'blew up' almost immediately, just like before.
Perhaps that's because it already has a book in the library associated with this XP admin account, viz. the introductory guide to ADE 3.0?
This time, I noted some details from the Microsoft error report:
I hope that means something to somebody! (The last part of it seems particularly suggestive, but of what exactly, I cannot say.)
I searched to see if Adobe have a system for reporting bugs, but the drop-down menu in the Web form I found didn't have an entry for Adobe Digital Editions (3.0, or any other version), so I gave up.
