    Error message when authorizing ADE


      I was told when I contacted Customer Care that I needed to post my question on here: I have recently purchased a new laptop and have downloaded ADE onto the new computer so that I can read my ebooks on the new laptop. However, on the old laptop, ADE continuously says that I am not connected to the internet. The book publishers have told me that this is an issue with your program, and not with their books. Can you please tell me what I need to do in order to make sure I can read these ebooks on my new laptop?


      Thank you very much for your help!

          Which error message get you exactly when tray to authorize?
          Do you used Windows or Macintosh?

            I am using Windows on both machines. I was getting an error message on the new computer that said E_LIC_ALREADY-FULFILLED_BY_ANOTHER_USER, so then I saw on one of your forums that I should try erasing the authorization in the ADE on the old computer and then re-authorizing. It allowed me to erase the authorization, but would not allow me to re-authorize (I kept getting a red error message that said I was not connected to the internet). THEN, I read on your forums that this sometimes happens with ADE 4.5, and the suggestion was to uninstall and then install 4.0 on the old computer, so I did THAT. And I'm STILL getting the same error message on the old computer (that I'm not connected to the internet, AND I can't even READ any of the books that I already have on there. So, now I can't read the books on EITHER computer.

              FULFILLED_BY_ANOTHER_USER say that you has your Device authorize with a other Adobe ID as you buy the eBook. So you must remove the Authorize and authorize again with the Adobe ID which has used by the first download:


              1. Close all applications.
              2. Choose Start > Run.
              3. In the Open text box, type regedit and then press Enter. The Registry Editor opens.
              4. In the left pane of the Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept
              5. Select the Adept key.
              6. Choose File > Export.
              7. 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.
              8. Right-click the Adept key and choose Delete.
              9. In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.
              10. Close the Registry Editor.
              11. Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize.
