    On Digital Editions Error2038 // on Digital Editons "Error! Check Activation" //  when trying to download a DRM protected book. Digital Editions IS authorised !!!!



      My Digital Editions has been running great for years (even across migrations from one PC to another), then suddenly yesterday I could not download any new DRM protected EPUB or PDF files.

      I was running Adobe Digital Editions

      Every time I would get errors like:


              IO Error on Network Request.

              Please check your network connection and try again.

              Network Path:

              https://books.google.com.au/books/download/Europe_at_War_1939_1945.epub?acsid=urn:uuid:xxx xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx&output=acs4_book_bytes

              Event Detail:

              Error #2038

              --- end ---


      So I upgraded to Adobe Digital Editions

      Still can't download any DRM protected books, but now I get a simple:

              "Error! Check Activation"


      I have been activated the whole time on both versions.


      Please.............. what's wrong?
