I have a Mac with OS 10.11.1. My Library is visible in Finder so I clicked my way to the activation.dat file for Adobe and removed it to the trash. Opened up ADE again and still getting the same error message.
Empty the trash that the file is gone and then authorize again.
Did that. Same error message that I can't authorize my laptop. Thoughts?
Which version of Digital Edition you used ?
I originally used 4.5 then deleted those files and downloaded 3.0. Still same message. I then set up another Adobe ID account with a different email address and tried to authorize my Mac. Still the same bad server message.
I don't know what to do now. Thoughts? Thanks.
Just installed 1.7.2 and still the same message now plus this: "Error communicating with Adobe server. Try again later."
I think I'll remove the files and try shutting down my computer and then reinstalling. Will let you know if I get the same message. *sigh*
