Hello, it's been 4 days and no answer. Of course with DRM, the consumer is stuck with a monopoly product and no recourse. So why not abuse him or her with no support and a busted product? Adobe, like Ma Bell of old, doesn't have to care.......
Try this, (Has help by my Digital Edition).
Closed all Message of Digital Edition.
Go to My Digital Edition Folder under your Documents and rename it in My DIgital Edition.old.
Then start again Digital Edition with right click and run as Admin.
Now you can download the eBooks agian over file add to Library.
Alas, ran it as admin after changing the folder name, but that didn't accomplish anything other than to create a new My Digital Editions folder.
The ADE application window never appears and when I look in Task Manager it isn't there either.
<plaintively> I have books purchased I'd like to read......
