    Can no longer download ebooks-gettting LIcensing error


      I have been using this program for years and suddenly this weekend it stopped working. I get the error "Error getting License. License server communication error. E_Auth_Bad_Device_Key_or_PKCS12" I have uninstalled and reinstalled Digital Edition  4.5 and deauthorized and reauthorized and its still not working. Ramesh at customer care was no help at all and his advise was to check this forum. I see many people with the same issues for a couple of weeks now. Adobe haven't you figured out how to fix it yet?
