I have downloaded ebooks successfully from my library for years using Adobe Digital Editions. Suddenly, however, I get this message: Unable to download. Error getting license. License server communication problem..E_STREAM_ERROR.
At the suggestion of tech support at the library, I erased the authorization and then authorized the computer anew. This didn't help. Rebooting the computer after doing this reauthorization didn't help either. I checked my firewall settings and Adobe Digital Editions is listed as "allow." Anyone have a similar problem. I fear this has something to do with a recent mandatory Windows update. (I have 8.1.) Everything worked before the update; now it doesn't.
I have the same problems on Mac Yosemite: the message is almost the same, except that it ends with: E_ACT_NOT_READY. I did more or less the same maneuvers with no results.Everything worked before the update; now it doesn't.
