    Mac Adobe Digital Editions error when opening ACES file


      This worked before, now a file won't open and I get the error msg --E_ACT_NOT_READY.


      I have spent an hour on the phone with remote access, she did nothing and transferred me to chat forum. Spent 30 minute sin chat they said, go back to forums. Called again they said, write in here. I have checked everything and nothing addresses this issue. I have updated my Adobe DE, I have the most current mac OS. I had them check my Adobe ID and they said there is only 1 and the Password seems to work to sign on. I can't unauthorize my ADE for this computer to reauthorize it so not sure what to do.


      Please advise.
