Change the Passwort and used only Letters and Numbers.
Sorry, that didn’t work.
After choosing Erase Authorization in the ADE Help pulldown, I get a screen with 3 lines:
Authorized Users: showing my library card number and “ | 3M”
Vendor Login ID: -- here I don’t know what it’s asking for, but i’ve tried my library card or “adobe.com” or my library user id.
Password: the library password (all numbers) or my Adobe.com password (now all letters and numbers)
The next screen asks to confirm. When I press “Erase authorization” there, the Erase Authorization screen returns, with the error message “Your password is incorrect. Type the correct password and try again.”
The library tech support person was puzzled by the 3-line screen – had not seen it before.
Vendor ID: Adobe ID
Username: Mail of your Account.
Password: Passpord of your account
That did not work.
There are three fields on the ADE Erase Computer Authorization window: Authorized Users, Adobe Login ID and Password.
I have no choice in Authorized Users. It is fixed at my library card “| 3M”
Vendor Login ID: I tried my Adobe login ID, the Library login ID, my email address, “Adobe ID”, “Adobe.com”
Password: I tried the Adobe password and my library password in combination with the others. The Adobe password and my library password have only letters and numbers.
None of these has worked.
The same error message shows up each time: “Your password is incorrect. Type the correct password and try again.”
Is anyone with ADE 4.5 having a similar problem?
Your authorization file will need to be manually deleted.
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.
On Mac it can be found here:
In Finder, find the 'Go' option on the menu bar and click 'Go to folder' and type the following in:
~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions/
Delete the activation.dat file within the 'Digital Editions' folder.
Restart ADE and it should be deactivated at this point. You should be good to sign back in.
