Are you trying to download and install ADE for Android? This does not exist and Android cannot run the same executable files that Windows does.
Or is this a problem with downloading Adobe Digital Editions on your computer running Windows? Have you tried the download link from Download | Adobe Digital Editions Home
Yes, I have tried to download on the Android despite the fact that I know Android cannot run files which Windows does.
I was trying that because of the fact that Android can read docx files and pdf and also the publisher instructed me that
I am supposed to download ADE on it so it should be all right.
I contacted the Publisher but they cannot handle.
The problem is that the book is a study text for an exam and I wanted to use it on the Android.
If you have downloaded the Aldiko reader for Android and have it installed you should be able to open your file within the Aldiko app. Were you able to transfer your ebook to your Android device?
I was thinking that Aldiko would be sufficient to read the book but the Publisher says that I need also ADE.
I am unable to transfer the book from the laptop to the Android.
Here are the instructions from the publisher:
Install Aldiko Book Reader App
Aldiko Book Reader Version 2.0.2 onto your device. Aldiko is
available for free or as a paid app from the Android Market at the

Oh okay, the publisher is telling you that you need Adobe Digital Editions on your computer and Aldiko on your Android device, not that you need both Adobe Digital Editions and Aldiko on your Android device.
If you have the ebook in Adobe Digital Editions you should be able to connect your Android device to your computer and follow their instructions for "Transfer the eBook to your device". Have you tried following their instructions for this part?
This the first thing I did. Without installing ADE on the Android but installed Aldiko and tried to
transfer the book from the laptop to the Android but it appears that I am missing something.
Then because I didn't manage I tried to install ADE.
And yes I have the e-book in the ADE library but just cannot transfer.
Thanks for the attention!
