    Activation Server Error - code: E_AUTH_NOT_READY


      Up until today I was able to add books from my local library to Digital Editions and then add them onto my Kobo.

      Now, for reasons I don't understand, it will allow me to download the books from the library, but not add them to my Kobo.

      I looked and it says my computer is "Authorized without an ID" and that basically this means I can't add books to another device.

      So, I went to authorize it using my Adobe ID and I'm getting the error message:

           Activation Server Error

           code: E_AUTH_NOT_READY

           Digital Editions encountered an error on the activation server.


      Does anyone know how to fix this or what I've done wrong?  Please help!

              Close all applications.

              Choose Start > Run.

              In the Open text box, type regedit and then press Enter. The Registry Editor opens.

              In the left pane of the Registry Editor, locate the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adept

              Select the Adept key.

              Choose File > Export.

              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.

              Right-click the Adept key and choose Delete.

              In the Confirm Key Delete dialog, click OK.

              Close the Registry Editor.

              Open Adobe Digital Editions and reauthorize.




              quit Adobe Digital Editions.

              Navigate to /Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/Digital Editions and drag the activation.dat file to the trash.

              If you are using 10.7, see https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/access-hidden-user-library-files.html
