I've tried several times and using different downloads, zip, browsers, but ADE won't install correctly on my office Lenovo 64 bit ThinkPad. Now what?
It loaded perfectly on my private MacBook (Why the office moved away from Mac I'll never know) and my iPads, but not on my office machine, where I want it.
Work around - download ADE 3.0 rather than ADE 4.5. It works!!!
I also just had the issue that the installer just crashes and asks to be shut down if I try to install it on my Win7 64bit computer.
Your work around with ADE 3.0 works perfectly - Thanks!
