Hi - I recently established a new account to read my borrowed epubs from the library. This was necessary since my old email account has been discontinued by the provider (clearwire; which no longer exists). But my ADE account still lists email@example.com as the one and only. It won't let me add another authorization and I can't seem to delete it (I can't recall the proper password). I tried uninstalling and re-installing, intending to add my newer account, but it reverted to clearwire
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.
thanks very much! I actually found just that solution searching around the
forums & it worked fabulously.
