Which operating system do you use?
I use a Surface Pro 3, i5, 256 GB with Windows 10.
- 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 for the instructions! I followed them carefully. Afterwards the key is deleted in the registry. However, if I open ADE the key reappears and everything is as before (with the same errors). ADE does not even say that I shall reauthorize.
Is there anything else I could try?
Have try to remove the Key as admin? The same has work on my PC.
yes, I tried it with and without admin and it did not work.
Today I tried out something else with your idea as a base: I deleted everything in the adobe folder of the registry and now it works. However, I can not say which file was the corrupted one.
Thank you for your help! I hope that ADE keeps running
