    Authorization of PC with Adobe ID?


      I have tried to authorize my PC with the Adobe ID in order to reed some bought e books - but this has failed, so far.


      I get a message saying: "You can only authorize with an Adobe ID that hasn´t been previously used to authorize any other computer or mobile devises. Please try again".


      Well! I have several devices that I have used my e-mail address for.......and I am allowed to reed e books on up to 6 different devices......so.....what to do???

              Close all applications.

              Press WINDOWS + R.

              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

              Remove the Adept Folder.

              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.
