ADE crash in opening a specific book or with any book?
hi - it's with any book - so far i have not been able to open any book at all. It's the act of clicking on the book that seems to cause the crash.
Please share the crash log if possible.
You can directly copy paste the log in this forum thread.
I hope you are using ADE 4.0.3.

I am having the same problem on my macbook. It is making me crazy. It's any book at all...I check it out from the library, and then when I try to open it in ADE, it crashes, over and over again.
yep, that's it...
When you try to relaunch ADE after crash, it tries open in the previous state before crash and it will end up in crashing again.
Can you please try below steps:
- Quit ADE
- Take backup of the "My Digital Editions" folder in "C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\" (for Windows) or "\Documents\" (for Mac)
- Delete the My Digital Editions folder.
- Launch ADE
- Now add the books one by one from the backup to the newly created folder.
I have tried all the reinstalling, moving and renaming the folder and re-adding the library books and this still happens. Is it a Yosemite issue or an ADE issue? Library books worked just fine a few weeks ago, now it seems none of them do. Sometimes it downloads them as 0 of 0 pages, and sometimes a normal looking amount, but either way it crashes just when trying to open the file to read, or even when trying to move the file to the Nook. The library folks seem to think it's not an issue with their files. I have been able to work around this by getting the Kindle editions which bypass ADE all together. Is this going to be the solution, just to stop using it?
I was able to get things to work again by throwing away ADE 4.0 (in the applications folder) re-naming the Digital Editions folder, downloading and installing ADE 3.0 and then importing the books from the renamed folder. New downloads from the library seem to work now, and no more crashes. I have successfully put everything back on the Nook and have also reported this to Apple.
Please download the latest ADE 18.104.22.168137
Some of the crashes have been fixed in this release.
Thanks for being the part in product improvement.
