    authorization issues


      ade wont let me deauthorize a 3m account and authorize an overdrive account.  keeps asking for password and login id.  ive given it my adobe id/login, library id and login, no joy.  even uninstalled the 3m app from my CPU, and ADE, reinstalled it and it still authorizes that account.  any ideas

          To deauthorize an account you have to put in your original 3M account, at which point if correct, it will deauthorize.


          If for some reason that doesn't work, you can manually delete the activation and reset ADE into an unactivated state. Follow these directions:



          You need to delete out a few registry keys to clear the activation for ADE. You must have administration authority.

          On Windows it can be found here:
          Open Windows Registry by using the command prompt and typing 'regedit' or by opening the start menu and searching for 'regedit'.


          Search for the following folder:


          The 'Activation' folder can be entirely deleted.


          Restart ADE and it should be deactivated at this point.
