I'm having the same problem. I can get my books into ADE and then they just disappear.
- Right Click on the Icon of Digital Editions.
- Choose start as Admin.
Thanks Nanaky but that didn't work either. The only difference was that when I ran as administrator, I got the message box, "Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your PC?" When I answered, "Yes", I got no response.
I am running windows 10 and was having similar problems and per Nanaky I closed ADE. Found the My Digital Editions folder in my documents and renamed it. I then open ADE and my books returned. They were filed in My Digital Editions. A couple of library books I had to re load but no biggie. Hope you are have luck.
Thanks Nanaky. Getting closer but still have a little problem:
I installed ADE 3.0.1 as you suggested, and was able to download a book from my public library using Overdrive [I wasn't able to do this with ADE 4.5].
However, when I attempted to open the downloaded file in ADE, I got an error box, "Error: Check Activation".
What should I do?
- Close all applications.
- 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: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept
- Select the Adept key.
- Choose File > Export.
- In the Export Registry File dialog box, select Selected Branch under Export Range. Enter a name and location for the backup registry key, and then click Save.
- Right-click the Adept key and choose Delete.
- In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.
- Close the Registry Editor.
- Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize.
Thanks Nanaky. Where do I find the name and location for the backup registry key that you mentioned in Step 7?
not an answer but another question, sorry: ADE is weird on my new windows 10 machine, when it opens it flies off the monitor, i can find it on task view but can't use it otherwise what am i doing wrong?
Name used this was get when save. The Place to save can used itself.
I'm sorry to be so dense but I didn't understand a word of your last post ("Name used this was get when save. The Place to save can used itself."). Could you dumb it down for me please?
I mean that can used the File Name which the system pretends.
The Place for the Save you choose yourself.
