Downloaded and installed ADE version 4.0. Running on Windows 8.1.
Just keep getting "Connection Error"- Digital Editions could not connect to the activation server. Please make sure you are connected to the internet."

I have a browser session open on Adobe site, including this one!
Firewall is also switched off now.
