          For this problem, you need to deauthorize and authorize ADE again.


          If due to some reason, you are unable to deauthorize ADE, follow the below steps:


          Mac: Navigate to /Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions and drag the activation.dat file to the trash.

          ADE will be deauthorized now.

          Now Authorize ADE again.




          Choose Start > Run.

          In the Open text box, type regedit and then press Enter. The Registry Editor opens.

          In the left pane of the Registry Editor, locate the following registry key:


          Right-click the Adept key and choose Delete.

          In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.



          Your authorization will be deleted.

          Now Authorize ADE again

          Hope this works !!.
